A Sixties Mod aesthetic was in the air at Todd Snyder’s presentation. “I was inspired by the movie ‘Quadrophenia,’ ” the designer said, “but I modernized it.”
A color palette of aubergine, burgundy, midnight blue and a lot of black dominated the lineup, with skinny three-piece suits with a high-button stance, shiny bomber jackets, graphic sweaters and a shaved shearling topcoat adding a new sense of sophistication. Snyder also blended technical fabrics such as bonded nylons and waterproof cottons with wools, working them in classic patterns like glen plaid and windowpanes. The result was a shiny finish and a refined sensibility.
Popular in the Far East and Europe and preparing to open a store in Tokyo, Snyder clearly has a more global customer in mind. This internationally flavored collection was right on the mark.
