Todd Snyder Spring 2018 NYFW men's



Okay message received!! Everything old is new again especially if “you” think it’s never been done before other than by the present state of Gucci. The fact is that there is nothing here that will set the world on fire BUT there are so many pieces that are wearable, fresh and have been massaged and tweaked to look trendy… well sort of!

Yes, I am a sucker for glen plaid and dots and stripes, especially when mixed but Snyder offers the chance for the wearer to create their own fashion statement by possibly just adding one new piece to an already existing turn out. Lots of jackets, lots of shirts cum jackets, some great shorts and then of course there is that camo raincoat which is just pretty great… or at least in my estimation.

Rather than regurgitate a press release, let’s just say that Snyder gets it as he uses the runway to present alternatives rather than offer a dictate. This is genuine sportswear and the pieces of the puzzle are ready to assemble but the end result remains in question as there is no photo on the box… if you catch my drift.

For me, the dissected collection has no age and is simply a tweak of the classics that offers much more than just an of the moment ode to trend. My interest was surely peaked with the very full legged jean and pants as well the tailored pieces.
