We would like to present to you the F/W 2019 "Paradigm" collection by the New York menswear duo Abasi Rosborough.

This season, one of the few independent New York talents, decided to do something different. Please see the statements from both designers describing the collection.

Abdul Abasi: “For our AW19 collection, we went back to our roots to focus on our core principles -- the convergence of flexible tailoring, military utility, and active sportswear. It was important for us to include our customers in the design process by giving each store the option to select exclusive deadstock fabrics. The goal was to create unique product for each store, which reflects the specific tastes and needs of their business -- wherever in the world, or for whatever climate, that may be. Through this process, we also create a more sustainable and compelling product for the end user."

Greg Rosborough and Abdul Abasi of Abasi Rosborough speak about their practical approach to modern menswear and why the suit is outdated....

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. What is even more rare in New York is for fashion's powers that be (I am looking at you, CFDA) to recognize homegrown talent that is not driven by hype. It is then with great pleasure. And now it has taken a foreign fashion authority, LVMH, to recognize Abasi Rosborough, who has been nominated for the 2017 LVMH prize. Abdul and Greg put together a little retrospective of their work for us to commemorate their nomination.
