Hickey Freeman has got 9 lives, and this repetition is obviously one of its best.
Under the direction of Arnold Brant Silverstone the chief creative officer, the line provided an array of updated men’s wear classics. He displayed the collection on a balcony at the Penthouse at The Standard, East Village along with views of New York as the backdrop, divided the collection into 3 vignettes.
Hamptons was “all about sand and sky” along with a palette of brown, beige and baby blue in clothing options which had “tactile” fabrics like silk and cashmere sport coats and a waterproof suede trench, he mentioned.
The Battery Park grouping displayed “a redo of the suit,” Silverstone included, along with softer creation and waist containment in colors of gray in luxury fabrics. “I love a double-breasted peak lapel,” he mentioned.
Manhattan Nights the final group, focused on eveningwear including with models which added a denim jacquard tuxedo and a 3-piece tux in midnight blue.
For the venerable brand the trifecta was a bet in the right direction.
