After playing a crucial role in the revitalization of J. Crew, designer Todd Snyder moved on to create his eponymous label in 2008. Snyder has quickly developed his brand into a powerhouse, as evidenced by his most recent collection that he debuted last night. Titled "An American in Paris," the collection is rife with military influences and tailored cuts that evoke images of World War II soldiers on leave in Paris. With so many elements on point, we pulled out five reasons why this collection might be one of NYFW's best yet. - Marisa, thesigother.com
The Carmel Overcoat With the renaissance of casual suiting, next Fall we predict men will be searching high and low for a great overcoat. Snyder's answer to that need is clean, classic and versatile.
One Button Blazers While one button's can sometimes seem stuffy or too formal, Snyder pulled off a high-button peak lapel version updating it for a modern guy.
Orange Everywhere The outerwear included touches of orange in various shades. Just enough to compliment the textures and tonalities of the garments beneath.
The Boots The footwear were a range of military inspired boots by Trickers (with some Alden's mixed in). Brogues and contrast laces and a pair of excellent Chelsea Boots rounded out the collection. We look forward to seeing more from Todd Snyder x Trickers, which we hear is in the works.
Military Details Finally, the whole collection was unified through military touches, such as pins, gloves and cinched pants.
