Intelligence and Tech for Fashion by Kenneth Ning at NYFWM

Is tech and robotics the future of fashion too?

Kenneth Ning‘s invite to New York Fashion Week Men’s (NYFWM) had the words ‘serve’ and ‘report’ on it, for a collection he described as PROTOCOL 18: the control of intelligence between the agency and the hacker. With a tech perspective in his styles, as seen in previous seasons too, it was a fun show to watch with a very futuristic lens.

A mix of tailored and oversized looks, trending till today, were spotted on the runway walking to pulsating house music. Many black and darker hues were spotted, some reminding me of previous deconstructed styles, as there was leather matched with pinstripe or asymmetric stripes with camo. Many pieces were unbuttoned, and several even mismatched, to advance the concept of layering for seasons.

My favorites were the whiter pieces, where the oversized fits worked quite well. Intriguing and almost bizarre cuts looked slick, comfortable and resonated with an almost outer-space style theme. Pairing these with lighter pinstripes or checks alongside a metallic silver propelled the tech concept even further. As a fan of asymmetry, I enjoyed the treatment that gave each silhouette a unique perspective.

Time for some back to the future nostalgia?
