New York's bi-annual fashion week will never die, but after this year, it'll never be the same. See, after 17 years in the tent at Bryant Park, Mayor Bloomberg has announced that next year the show will be moved to its new location at Lincoln Center's Damrosch Park. Officials say the shift in location will allow for more show space, while skeptics believe that the change is more the result of budget cuts.
Whatever the reason, designers like Z Zegna, Richard Chai, Patrick Ervell, and Rag & Bone have been making the most of Bryant Park's final year, debuting men's collections that both excite and inspire. Check out Complex's favorite pieces seen on the runway this year...
Piled on pieces, shrunken suits and oddly-fitted bomber jackets. Offbeat basics are key in this collection. Fit is focused on standing out rather than body type. Ervell's evolution is timeless.
Not to be distracted by the wet and slippery runway, the Z Zegna show "Neo Noir" delivered a powerful and masculine approach. Filled with bowler hats and oversized top coats, models stomped in tall leather boots. Z Zegna emphasized the dark low-key style and deep shadows in tone with the theme.
