In his debut runway collection, Bernardo Rojo eschewed the roots of the Joseph Abboud brand for his unique take on outfitting the modern globe-trotting man. He delivered a strong lineup steeped in traditional men’s wear classics with wide-peak lapel suits in elegant gentleman fabrics such as windowpanes, Prince of Wales and tweeds that hinted at the Thirties. Although some of the three-piece styles appeared a bit costume-y, the collection shone when it came to structured topcoats with oversize buttons, mohair blazers and Fair Isle sweaters. The Thirties aesthetic worked best in the mountaineering sportswear and the elegant evening wear finale.
