Showing for the first time at New York Fashion Week: Men's, new brand on the block, Abasi Rosborough debuted a Fall/Winter collection that was indicative of the times and spoke to the resilience of man. Designers Abdul Abasi and Greg Rosborough, whom found the line in 2013, have created a brand known for its inspired sportswear, giving meaning and depth of mood to an otherwise superficial runway. With heavy fabrications and deep layers they took us on a visual journey of where man could go and hinted to where he might have been.
Layering elegant kimono inspired silhouettes under structured outerwear brought a contemporary streetwise attitude to the collection. Oversized scarves draped heavily around the models head and shoulders in bold colors deeply contrasted the core collection and hinted at a nomadic and somewhat tribal influence. The mood of the collection was heavy yet inspired. Intelligent in a way that led you to believe that their man was traveled and experienced but still optimistic about the future.
