If this past menswear season showed anything it was that the logo, that constant companion of fashion that periodically goes in and out of style, is now firmly back.
I first met Abdul Abasi and Greg Rosborough of Abasi Rosborough several years ago at Colibri, the textile and garment dyeing studio in New York while they were working on their first collection. It is rare in New York to see a brand that produces menswear that transcends the usual tropes of streetwear or “classic with a twist.” What I saw in their work from day one is real design – thoughtful, deliberate, painstaking – especially evident in the way they approached tailoring by making it relevant to the way men dress today. I continued to follow their impressive work each season.

Two weeks ago I met with Takahira Miyashita, the Japanese fashion designer of the mens brand TAKAHIRAMIYASHITATheSoloist. Miyashita’s original brand Number (N)ine made a mark on men’s fashion during the past decade when menswear was at its height in terms of reinterpreting youth culture.
When last year the Belgian designer Raf Simons was finally officially appointed as the creative director of Calvin Klein, the American brand known for its minimalist aesthetic, the fashion world was elated, and those of us in New York doubly so. The New York fashion scene has long been starved of creative talent of Simons’s caliber.
