Todd Snyder, Bode, and Nick Graham: NYFWM SS19

By Pearl Fontaine

July 17, 2018

The men’s Spring/Summer 2019 presentations last week in New York were a sure reminder of one thing—history can be revisited, and reinvented. Below, we’ve included a group of noteworthy collections that turned to the archives for inspiration.

Nick Graham’s “1969” collection was presented at the Cadillac House, focusing on the pivotal year in U.S. history when events like Woodstock and the first landing on the moon took place. Inspired by space suits and other astronaut-reminiscent fashion that was prominent during that year, the collection featured looks like metallic silver bomber jackets paired with jeans, capes complemented by helmets, and all-over silk suits. The collection was fittingly presented in front of a vintage Cadillac within the space, and in front of a screen with starry projections of space.

Continuing its practice of creating clothing through storytelling, Bode followed author (and longtime collaborator) Aaron Aujla’s family history—the story of a man leaving his family in Northern India to support them while working in British Columbia, reunited nearly 20 years later. A melding of multicultural influences, the collection featured looks like rugby-inspired uniforms and traditional suits made from hand-woven Indian toweling. Each look was then photographed in a series of settings that suggested illustrations of the family’s story, including industrial workplaces and retro home spaces.

Todd Snyder debuted a collection highlighting the American tourist, offering updated versions of iconic men’s fashion looks from the past. 1980s American camp classics like athletic tanks and soccer slides were seen mixed between dapper business suits and collegiate jackets—suggestive of a bohemian tourist who picked up bits and pieces of style throughout his travels. This colorful collection of past favorites also featured several capsule pieces created in partnership with heritage brands like Levi, Novesta, and Kangol.
