A new class of young designers is laying down roots and establishing labels in the men’s market. Among the more promising newcomers is Fingers Crossed, founded and designed by Ryu Hayama, with a spring look shown here. Born and raised in Tokyo, he studied mechanical engineering at prestigious Waseda University, but then moved to New York to learn men’s fashion design at FIT. He launched his label this year, targeting men who appreciate fit, details and workmanship with an American heritage aesthetic.
