BLUE COLLAR COOL
New York: This season Marcus Wainwright and David Neville cozied up blue collar classics with layered styling and materials like buffalo check, brushed wools and shaggy knits. Utility silhouettes were elevated in lustrous silks or suitings, while white denim was covered with muddy splatters. Embroidered names on shirts and jackets further emphasized the workman’s influence. — Anna Jane Davis
