For Kenneth Cole’s spring collection, creative director Ingo Wilts merged nature with industrial elements, looking to New York’s High Line park for inspiration. On hand at the presentation, Cole described the clothes as “relatively classic and simple. We made a consistent effort to upgrade and enhance the quality and richness of the styles,” he said. Women’s and men’s looks leaned heavily on black and white but also tapped into a key spring trend, offering an array of pop colors such as red, lime and teal. A play on proportion and lengths was offered for women, such as a long blazer paired with cropped pants. Other looks included graphic pleated skirts, sharp tailored suits and vibrant denim, paired with oversized clutches, platform lace-up sandals and open-toe booties.

For men, there was everything from slim suiting to utilitarian cotton work shirts to printed snakeskin five-pocket pants and sleeveless leather vests.
