Poetry in Motion with Loris Diran at NYFWM

Poetry in Motion.
Perhaps this is the only way to describe this style.

Loris Diran‘s choice of venue, the HG Contemporary Gallery, was fitting to his style story for SS17 at New York Fashion Week Mens (NYFWM). Unlike runway shows of his more colorful and checkered collections in SS16 and his winter wear in FW16, his dapper dandies were dressed in flowing fabrics of stone grays, earthy beiges and forest greens, more fitting for the stillness in the surreal setting of an art gallery.

Diran described his collection as a journey through South America, with everything affected by the heat of the sun. With sun bleached colors like pale bone, dusty mauve, pine green, dusty sand, all the enviably soft fabrics were draped on immaculately decked male bodices defined by Menaji Men’s Skincare.

I agreed with Diran, that while gray and black are colors that every man should own in abundance, the interplay with forest green, browns, and earthen tones helps to heighten the looks to a desired effect. Combined with his choice of tailoring and fabrics, every look was a unique take on a man’s style story.

Elongated jackets and shirts with cropped pants in cottons and linens were a staple trend, all paired with bleached white sneakers for a clean and versatile feel.

Of blazers, there were varieties which marked a thicker edge, tone on tone, or an almost tweed like fabric texture which made for easy pairing. Some interlaced corduroy and cotton mix fabrics for a block effect, seen on the runway before, and a pleasant departure from plain jackets and suits.

One model paired it with a classic suit, making a sharp formal statement, while another reminded me of the kurtas from Delhi Fashion Week.

To beat the summer heat, my safest option would be to wear a thin linen neckerchief and skip the shirt altogether!

Outerwear came in thick military fabric or thin denim, alongside a zippered overcoat with tweed shoulders and thinner white-on-white shirt and jacket combos which were perfect for the breezy spring and summer transition days.

Joggers were another staple, akin to Diran’s last collection, and it was a pleasure seeing them paired with matching overalls, cardigans and sometimes even blazers. Style and comfort were truly blending seamlessly everywhere in this collection, all the way from an entire foliage green outfit to a beige salt-and-pepper oversized sweater.

As always, it was a pleasure seeing Loris Diran once again, and understanding his solid vibe for fabric, texture, style and comfort, which made for a sparkling in-depth conversation aboutmenswear designs and exposed a wealth of knowledge on men’s buying habits, too.

Feeling juxtaposed with my colorful Nehru jacket, I opted for a quick lookbook shoot outside the art gallery in the steaming sun and the bright blue construction site.

Dripping in envy with the clothing on the models, I cannot wait to breathe in these fabrics next spring.
