HEP PREP
London:
Joseph Abboud brought hefty doses of Americana to London’s first Men’s-only fashion experiment, showing a collection that leaned heavily on classic prep looks a la the upcoming Great Gatsby film. However, Abboud was far from content to present a hackneyed collection based only on debatably clichéd source material, so was sure to introduce hep 50s elements like high-waisted pleated trousers, candy striped Western shirts, and trucker jackets in Rebel Without a Cause red.  —Andrew Luecke
