New York Fashion Week – Brooks Brothers Black Fleece Fall/Winter 2013

Black Fleece is always consistent and produces great clothing which can be worn by all body types. Thom Browne does a wonderful job reinterpreting  Brooks Brothers’ archival pieces and this season, the color palate consisted of gold, plum, red, military green and raspberry.  These colors were primarily used on the tartan pieces which included a double breasted flannel shorts suit and a tartan jacket.   The usual white, navy, gray and black was used on the majority of the collection and some of my favorites were the large scale tartan topcoat, cashmere down parka and the black French lace dinner jacket. The most impressive part of the collection was the footwear for both, mens and womens.  I really like the men’s hybrid captoe/wingtip shoe and the women’s moc-toe derby heels with the gray suede tassels. All in all, another solid collection from Black Fleece.

Dolce & Gabbana Milano Headquarters Visit

After walking into the doors of the Dolce & Gabbana, you are greeted with a pair of ornate chairs. Through the minimal black lobby and up one level, you arrive to the showroom where they showcase the current collection to the buyers. This season, Dolce and Gabbana casted a special selection of models to walk the Spring/Summer collection. The typical models were joined by everyday Sicilians which even included some young children. My favorite pieces of the collection were the printed shirts. They came in a variety of colors and some of the more elaborate designs included scriptures and fine art paintings. Many of the tailored looks were relaxed and roomy due to the heavy pleating.

After viewing the latest collection we took a short trip to the other building which is dubbed as the white building. This part of the Dolce and Gabbana headquarters houses the previous season’s collections of both women’s and men’s. Some interesting pieces from last season included the Dolce & Gabbana bicycle and the heavily hand embroidered dresses. The dresses were completely hand-made in Sicily and are comparable to haute couture. The showrooms are quite immaculate and the white interior compliments the pieces of clothing. There are no distractions and your attention is purely focused on the garments.
