Nicholas Elliott, who was showing at New York Fashion Week: Men’s for the first time, set out to create a collection full of contrasting elements. For example, a houndstooth check fabric, which is typically associated with more formal wear, was used for a pair of drawstring shorts, while a traditional car coat was updated with a vinyl collar. Texture seems to be a calling card for Elliott, who also utilized velour, canvas, wool, cotton and ultra suede. Ecclesiastical references were also a key element of the line — religious emblems and cross embroidery appeared on tank tops and a sweatshirt that read “Holy.”

 

While Elliott had big ideas and multiple points of inspiration, he was able to boil them down into a cohesive, spirited collection that felt of the moment but also forward.
