Heritage Accessories Take Center Stage In Men's Style

Mar 18, 2014

During the recent Spring/Summer 2014 menswear fashion shows in New York, one trend that took center stage was the heavy influence of heritage and vintage-inspired accessories. David Hart showed handsome dress shoes made by American heritage footwear brand, Walk-Over;Michael Bastian incorporated elegant leather briefcases from handcrafted, American-made brand Frank Clegg; Ernest Alexander used traditionally crafted Italian sunglasses from Dom Vetro; Robert Geller used eyewear by Randolph Engineering, a heritage brand that’s been outfitting the American military for decades. We all know that the Japanese have a knack for doing heritage Americana even better than Americans, and this was exemplified by the the intricate, leather accessories by Japanese brand, Rooster King & Co used in Daisuke Obana’s N. Hoolywood show. There were also the covetable Masterpiece bags used in the Tim Coppens show.
