Welcome to the Wild West, William Rast-style. Justin Timberlake and Trace Ayala blended a tribal motif into their leather-heavy fall lineup. In men’s wear, a strong sense of utility was tempered with a bit of bohemian romance. If Vietnam-era rockers went camping in the Mojave Desert, they might have worn these fringed motorcycle jackets, army fatigues and distressed jeans. White ruffle-fronted tunics were paired with snake-embossed skinny pants for a touch of rock ’n’ roll Baroque. Even if it’s not exactly innovative, this label just might have the stylistic chops to contend with the European giants in its category.
