Continuing to push the envelope, Ovadia & Sons stretched its traditional aesthetic for fall while staying true to its roots. “It’s luxurious, but in a casual way,” said Shimon Ovadia, who designs the collection with his twin brother Ariel. “It’s dressing up, but in a supereasy way.”
Track pants were shown with tailored jackets, and a belted cashmere overcoat with a removable coyote collar was paired with a gray hoodie and Japanese tricot sweatpants. The Ovadias also offered a completely unconstructed lounge suit in a black-and-white houndstooth pattern that had “pajama references,” Shimon said, but was made from a wool-cashmere flannel.
Outerwear was also prevalent, with a pebble calfskin bomber jacket, a long two-tone parka with grosgrain detail and stretch-mesh lining, and a belted wool-mohair-cashmere overcoat among the standouts. There was also an assortment of skiwear, which ranged from the classic sweater to a faux-fur vest and calfskin down jacket.
“We want to dress America,” Shimon said. “Not too safe, but not too fashion-y, either.”
