THE SPORTY TAILOR
New York: Antonio Azzuolo is quickly working his way up the New York menswear totem pole with consistent collections that are full of boyish charm and time-honored traditions. For F/W 12, he stuck with his tailoring expertise for an assortment all about merging streetwear influences with traditional sartorial methods. The show notes explained the season as being “…about harmony and juxtaposition; sharply tailored jackets…mixed with elements of chic, luxury, and volume.” Joining a long list of designers thus far this season, Azzuolo put a lot of effort into playing with proportions on items like a sharply-cropped blazer styled with voluminous pants, or super-boxy activewear paired with refined woven shirts and knit ties. With just the right amount of edge and attitude, the brand’s ability to showcase a realistic approach to contemporary menswear has got people talking.   —Michael Fisher
