New York Menâs Day, afternoon session
Private Policy: Having graduated from Parsons School of Design in 2015, the partners Haoran Li and Siying Qu design menâs and womenâs wear for a candy-colored dystopian future. Maiden Noir: Designed in Seattle and made in Japan, Nin Truongâs monochromatic drawstring pants, sweatshirts and shorts are appropriate for the upper echelons of an urban phys. ed. class. R. Swiader: The soft draping of Raf Swiaderâs materials are at the heart of a menâs wear brand that aims to fulfill a âutilitarian lifestyleâ (his words). Descendant of Thieves: Specializing in shirts and knit tops, the staples designed by Dres Ladro and Matteo Maniatty carry a whiff of their Mediterranean heritage. Heliot Emil: The Copenhagen brand is drastically minimalist and impertinently unisex. Dune Studios, 55 Water Street, 4:30 to 6 p.m.
