[NEW YORK, NY.] Creative Director at Large, Jim Moore used his professional candour in styling for Todd Snyder’s Fall 2019 runway show. Back in 2008, Moore discovered Snyder when he headed up menswear for the J.Crew brand. It’s nice to see Moore break free from the grips of Condé Nast and use his talent to uplift American menswear designers. This season was titled East End Boys because of the heritage highlighted throughout the collection that has ties to the pre-Savile Row set and the East End of London’s youth.
Of course, Snyder took from the past, yet, he handled it with care and updated iconic school uniforms by mixing it with an irreverent New York sensibility. Additionally, from his own personal past, Snyder paid tribute to his graduating school, Iowa State University by integrating a variety of ISU hoodies into the collection. Traditional bespoke fabrics were given a bright future with bold hues, recognizable patterns like plaid flannel vividly stood-out and resembled the New York City skyline.
The Men’s Fall 2019 season marks the first exclusive collaboration with Descente, a brand based in Osaka that focuses on delivering apparel that is designed to move freely, naturally and beautifully. Fusing Snyder’s passion for tailoring and his love of tweed/sartorial references, the designs incorporate Descente’s proprietary ALLTERRAIN and SYNCHKNIT technology in smartly tailored sportswear designed for the modern momentum.
