New York: Perry Ellis showed an impressive line-up of contemporary fashion with a lot of commercial potential. The designer cited proportions and stripped down workwear styling as the basis of the autumn/winter collection, which could be seen in elongated shackets paired with ankle-cropped trousers and waist-cropped jackets with slightly longer cardigans and slim trousers. Boilersuits were styled with the top folded down so that it just appeared to be a utility pant, and one with a deep drop-crotch silhouette. Flannel plaids in shirting and shackets gave a lumberjack vibe that was complimented by cosy knit cardigans and sweaters. Silhouettes greatly varied from slim suiting to rounded outerwear and knitwear, which represented more fashion-forward pieces. Sweatshirt, jogger match sets also appeared throughout like one with graphic vertical stripes and another as an all velvet ensemble. Overall, there’s plenty to choose from in this collection with strong suiting and knitwear leading the pack. – Matt Feniger
