Ones To Watch at New York Fashion Week Men’s

New York is often overlooked when the menswear season comes along, but I want to make a case for NYFW:M as a creative bubble of fashion talent and innovation. A series of presentations by up-and-coming fashion brands is kicking off New York Men’s Day on Monday 9th July, hosted by CreativeDrive. Amongst these labels are some killer ones-to-watch; menswear designers that go beyond the tired streetwear and sportswear tropes, instead creating truly contemporary designs for a hungry audience. Here are some of our favourite picks, with brands inspired by everything from smoking to surfing.


AGENT NYC is a modern menswear label by designers Terrence Williams and Joshua Fronda, whose signature export is playful yet practical footwear and quirky adaptations of traditional menswear silhouettes.
