SPORT AND COMPORT
New York: Rising Menswear star Ian Velardi showcased the skills that have recently made him a critics darling and retail hit (Gap collaboration anyone?), presenting a collection of perfectly-executed basics, highlighted by expertly-jumbled preppy styling of the type that comes naturally to the best American designers. Velardi’s signature look included color-blocked sweatpants paired with a blackwatch tuxedo jacket, an ensemble he finished with clogs, a fringed scarf and a sporty “USA” cap. Hybrid items like a popover CPO shirt-jac further confirmed that Velardi’s clever, wearable looks are on the ascent, and rightfully belong alongside the best of American Menswear. –Andrew Luecke
