Robots of a Frozen Winter: N P Elliott at NYFWM

Winter in New York turns the city that never stops into Siberia. And the forecast for fall/winter 2017 is a blizzard. So why not integrate the heaps of snow into chunks of winter clothing for New York Fashion Week Mens (NYFWM)?

N P Elliott (aka Nicholas Elliott) who debuted last season, showcased a winter friendly style that was eskimo meets bohemia. Described as principled streetwear with an avant garde edge, his was a futuristic and robot style take on patchwork and detailing on outerwear with a massive overdose of fur fabrics juxtaposed with others.

Inspired by the androgynous element in the 1992 fantasy movie “Orlando” and the costumes of 1984 sci-fi movie “Dune”, this one comprised of several pieces that would foray into ready-to-wear with a storm, literally.

The more boyish, read as boys scouts menswear, was a basic tee with a sash, a multipurpose long sleeved hoodie with symmetrical zippers and neon drawstrings and a lobster looking suede turtleneck vest with robot-like sleeves. The cross chested buttons and the Melius XII artwork made it fit for an outerspace adventure on the moon and beyond.

Bright colored jackets in orange and green were lined with lush fur collars. Each embraced architectural designs, contrasting piping, zipper or button details and jewelry insertions (including a mini dreamcatcher as a keychain on one!). A navy jacket was almost robotic looking with neon orange pop outs, and a mustard jacket with oversized buttons had the most curious combination of bejeweled brooches.

The last few designs emphasized the faux-Astrakhan fur element in a plethora of stages. From a fur hood on tan and navy wool coats, the focus was on an almost tribal look for the face, with makeup and braids making it an intriguing combination.

One lusciously dense fur coat on what looked like an orange paisley print onesie was severely futuristic, especially with a cult style metal badge on the chest. My favorite though was an oversized coat with peaks of neon, and fur sleeves and inner lining. Completely wearable for a winter statement.

I am so ready for the future, no matter what the weather is like.
