New York…Shipley & Halmos
Trovata vets, Sam Shipley and Jeff Halmos, returned for a very different collection than their previous “casual preppy” incarnations. Inspired by Ayn Rand and “linear objectivism,” sharp angles popped up everywhere, from the runway to the prints on the woven shirts and knits. Even the overall cut of the clothes was as sharp as skyscrapers. The cardigans had a double placket, hiding all mention of buttons. Turtlenecks were layered under almost all knits. Besides the architectural greys, a very light pink and an electric green looked bold against the darker layers underneath. Although not as charming as their previous collections, both Shipley and Halmos seem to be on the same mission of self-discovery as the men they dress.
