With so much to see in three days, MR’s crack editorial team (Karen Alberg Grossman, Brian Scott Lipton, Stephen Garner, and Michael Macko) scoured the show to find the most stylish, colorful, innovative, and luxurious apparel and accessories on display. Take a look at what we found!
Camo is such a staple in menswear that it can’t even be considered a trend anymore, it’s a perennial, but for spring 2018 it gets a punch of color from Mackage, they reinterpret camo as a foliage print with a bold punch of coral on its bomber jacket ($450), and even better, it reverses to solid olive. Shown here with a coral T-Shirt from Sol Angeles ($52), olive pants from Velvet ($158), and a beaded Jasper necklace with fishing lure from byTHIEL ($200).
