Todd Snyder took a trip to Capri for spring, pushing the lineup into very leisure-inspired territory with hibiscus-print shorts and safari jackets, soft linen drawstring pants and indigo terry cloth polos.
But the collection was not all fun and games. Snyder also offered up some business-appropriate cotton suits and sharp spring trenchcoats — a definite trend during the New York shows so far.
The show also featured pieces from the designer’s collaborations, such as faded tank tops and sweatshirts, a bomber blended with linen from his Champion line, and artisanal leather sandals from his Cole Haan association.
In both the main line and the collaborations, it’s obvious that Snyder has his finger on what the American man wants with this commercial and salable collection. But one wonders what else the designer might have up his sleeve if he took a few more chances.
