This February, New York Fashion Week: Men’s will not be a separate entity from the ladies’s exhibits. Instead, the 2 might be mixed to create a single 10-day schedule with exhibits marked as males’s, ladies’s or coed. Men’s exhibits will run from Monday, Feb. 5-Wednesday, Feb. 7, with ladies’s following on Thursday, Feb. Eight-Wednesday, Feb. 14, which the CFDA confirmed to Fashionista in a press release.
Some of the identical greater names could have a presence in each segments of the brand new NYFW — assume Raf Simons, whose eponymous label will present in the course of the menswear portion of the week and whose designs for Calvin Klein will present in the course of the ladies’s phase. Other menswear designers that may present in the primary half of the week will embrace Hugo Boss, Perry Ellis and Todd Snyder.
The transfer could also be designed to assist menswear exhibits get extra consideration from the press, as editors and influencers who already want to be in New York for the ladies’s exhibits may come a bit earlier to catch males’s exhibits, as nicely. It may be meant to bolster every week that noticed some its heavyweights — from Thom Browne to Proenza Schouler — decamp for Paris this previous season. But it is value noting that the consolidation will not essentially impact NYFW previous February. The following NYFW:M will happen in July, at the least a full month forward of the ladies’s exhibits that occur in September yearly.
“We keep finding ways to help designers find new outlets to show their collections,” CFDA vice chairman of selling Mark Beckham advised WWD. “Whether that’s showing men’s and women’s together, showing off-schedule or even overseas… By having the men’s shows adjacent to women’s, we hope we will have strong showing for NYFW.”
