The Perry Ellis Spring/Summer 2015 debut at New York Fashion Week did not disappoint. Michael Maccari successfully put a fresh spin on the classic Perry Ellis look. Inspiration from artist Sean Scully is expertly captured by Maccari in his use of horizontal lines, fun patterns, and mix of vibrant and muted colors. Through the mixture of those the collection creates a nice blend of dressed up yet fun style for the modern man. You can easily see the ways you can mix and match pieces to create a look that would fit your own style.
Some of our favorite pieces included the raincoat and suit fusion and the casual long sleeve and pants. The “rainsuit,” as we’ll call it, had a unique look with two types of fabrics used together that you would normally use separately. But here combined they create a functional yet still stylish piece of clothing. The casual long sleeve and pants is always a great look that can be dressed up or down very easily. What made it stand out was the darker colors paired together with white shoes that make a nice contrast. Overall we enjoyed the collection! but now it’s your turn…what’re your thoughts!?
