NEW YORK MEN’S DAY KICKS OFF SPRING SUMMER 2023 NEW YORK FASHION WEEK

by John Russel Jones

Erin Hawker and her team at Agentry PR wowed the New York fashion media scene with the 19th edition of New York Men’s Day (NYMD) on Friday, September 9th, at Daylight Studios on West 31st Street in Manhattan, officially kicking off New York Fashion Week. The event was sponsored by heritage footwear brand Sperry and outerwear brand Nobis, and fueled by appliance company De’Longhi, who kept the energy at a high all day with espresso, coffee, and — in the afternoon — espresso martinis.  The event was, as always a raving success: by packing 11 different fashion presentations into two one 1/2 hour sessions — morning and afternoon — it’s like one-stop shopping for men’s fashion trends. Here we share some of our favorite shots from the presentations. Trends spotted were a pretty 50/50 split between vivid, clear, cheerful color and severe black, white, or navy neutrals. There was also a lot of attention paid to texture: Think raw, dupioni silks, and loosely crocheted or knitted fabrics. Finally, skin is in: Whether that’s a call out to global warming, picking up on last award season’s red carpet trends, or just to keep viewers’ attention, we’re not sure, but this editor may be spending the winter back at the gym, just in case.
