It's no secret that 2016 was... challenging, to put it lightly. There was a lot going on in the world. Some even thought the apocalypse was coming.
In response to this, designer Zachary Prell created a collection that was heavy on utilitarian concepts and cloudy colors like grey and dark blues, to help the modern man navigate life. He showcased his Fall/Winter 2017 collection at a presentation on Tuesday evening.
While the pieces were heavy on monochromatic looks, they featured softer materials, with cashmere knits and Macintosh coats. Model Nick Truelove brought his A-Game, as he got dolled up for yet another presentation. Is someone keeping count of how many times the apparent model of the season, with his movie-star looks, he has appeared at #NYFWM?
Also in the mix to witness Prell's sporty, yet refined and classic collection was model-off-duty Johannes Huebl. Rapper Young Paris posted up next to some of the models, taking photos. He's been the music man of this year's New York Fashion Week: Men's, recently giving a surprise performance at Engineered For Motion.
Ken Downing, the longtime fashion director of Neiman Marcus, was also on site, taking note of many looks from the collection. What can we expect him to select for Neiman Marcus this season? Only a few more retail rollouts will tell.
