Creative director John Crocco’s Perry Ellis collection had a sense of leisure and escapade, the kind of clothes a city guy would pick for a weekend in the country. A belted car coat and a grandfather cardigan with a shawl collar drove home that theme, as did traditional staples such as camel peacoats and Fair Isle sweaters. On trend with much of the men’s wear season, earthy and gray hues gave the collection a rich feel and were sometimes contrasted with color-blocked sweaters. Outerwear played a key role, with toggled nylon coats and herringbone trenches, but the collection was surprisingly soft on tailoring. Then again, a walk through the woods doesn’t exactly require a fitted suit.
