The Top Men’s Trends Fall 2017: Craft is the New Punk

What’s More Punk Than Leather, DIY Craft Projects?

A new generation of New York designers are rejecting traditional luxury in favour of a new fashion culture aligned with individualism. Matthew Adams Dolan, Bode, and Thaddeus O’Neil are turning  Craft into the New Punk at New York Men’s Fashion Week

Meet Matthew Adams Dolan, Rihanna’s go-to guy for denim. His denim, much of it from North Carolina’s fabled Cone Denim Mills, is the chief fabrication that Dolan uses for his process-driven pieces, shredding it and reworking it in ways that live at the crossroads of sportswear and workwear—somewhere between JNCO and Levi Strauss’s early pairs.

Emily Adams Bode menswear collection presented at NYFW:M, featured models on beds in a homey setting, adding to the laid-back attitude of the clothing fashioned from antique fabrics.

Thaddeus O’Neil was inspired by the 1977 golden record that was placed on the Voyager. O’Neil’s unisex brand of playwear inspired by the surf and sea had slightly cropped Ottoman trousers with nifty graphic tees spelling out Sea Disco, and metallic bomber jackets from the 70s.
