New York: Andrew Buckler commandeered an entire block of Gansevoort Street to show off his latest S/S 2012 offerings, an environment that perfectly suited his sophisticated streetwear staples. Buckler’s collection was full of wearable, real items like classic blazers, drop crotch shorts, well cut t-shirts, and windbreakers.
Distinctive details like asymmetrical closures, elastic cuffs, and suspender slits in t-shirts that allowed concealed trouser attachments belied the seeming simplicity of Buckler’s garments. Pops of bold cobalt blue that bordered on violet and graphic typeface tees offset a relatively sedate palette of greys, black, and white. In all, Buckler’s urbane sportswear classics, abraded and painted denim, and “I heart NY” graphics owned the streets with New York’s very own ingenious, coolly subdued swagger.  —Andrew Luecke
