JOSEPH ABBOUD’S AMERICAN TAILORING RETURNS TO RUNWAY
Joseph Abboud’s returned to the runway February 2 at New York Fashion Week: Men’s to a tribute to America’s sartorial heritage. Abboud’s fall/winter 2016 collection mingles the tradition of fine tailoring of 1960’s Savile Row and the peacock revolution that took the United States by storm.
The collection featured luxurious fabrics, finely crafted bespoke details, bold patterns, and a rich palette of grey, chocolate, rust, olive, stormy blue, and ebony make up the collection. Washed velvets and cashmeres from Biella, distressed wool prints dyed in true ancient madder shades from Como and authentic Harris Tweeds from Scotland, come to life in suits and separates that feature our new signature Traced Fit.
Each piece featured on the runway was made in the U.S.A., at the Joseph Abboud Manufacturing Corp. in New Bedford, MA as were all of the accessories, which were created in collaboration with six outstanding U.S.-based artisans including bags by Rawlings, hats by CFDA member Albertus Swanepoel, ties by Barbara Blank, watches by Kobold, shearling outerwear by Aston Leathers, and footwear by Allen Edmonds.
This was Abboud’s first fashion show since he’s been reunited with his namesake brand.
