Michael Michalsky sent his homeboys uptown in a fall collection that took a dapper approach to army/navy store influences. Peacoats came cropped, midlength or nearly to the floor, while a new flat shearling spruced up bombers and baseball jackets. More citified wears included a camel town coat over a neatly quilted sweater and cropped, wide-cuffed slim pants; a sweat suit comprised of a fleece three-button sport coat and dress joggers was worn with a shirt and tie. The designer’s updated hip-hop pants remained a strong point in short, narrow-legged drop-crotch styles, as well as slim fatigues and six-pocket cargo pants.
Michalsky’s women are a dressier set so for them he continued to offer lots of silk and satin, encrusted jeweled accents, sequined devoré velvet and glittering lamé. But it was the more masculine and tailored looks — sometimes soft, sometimes sharp — that shone, i.e., a nonchalant black wool coat with a leather-accented shawl collar worn with matching leather-yoked cropped pants.
