The Fall ’14 menswear collections have marched down the catwalk in London, Florence, and Milan, and are now under way in Paris. Before the new clothes hit the runway, we’ve asked some of the most anticipated names to offer a sneak peek. Per usual, it’s a busy time for all—designers and fashion followers alike—so we’re continuing our split-second previews: tweet-length at 140 characters or less. Our entire collection of Fall ’14 previews is available here.
WHO: Paul Smith
WHEN: Sunday, January 19
WHAT: “I’ve been close to the music industry since I started out. The era of the Doors inspired Fall ’1—the Jim Morrison cult and his followers.” —Sir Paul Smith. The designer sent us a music-themed Fall ’14 detail shot, above.
Sandro, in continuing with its Americana kick (the French brand teamed up with Dree Hemingway in January on a capsule collection of print tees and boho seventies-inspired pieces), has paid tribute to one of the country’s most legendary musical acts: the Doors. “Not only was Jim Morrison able to create the most hypnotic music of all time, but he exhibited a particular style throughout his career,” Sandro Homme artistic director Ilan Chetrite tells Style.com of the band’s front man. “No man has ever worn leather pants with such style.” As an homage to the rock star’s iconic look, Chetrite created a range of vintage knitted T-shirts featuring images of Morrison and the band. “I wanted to honor the band that transcended music with melodies halfway between heaven and damnation,” he explains. The red, white, and black shirts ($95 to $110) are available now on the Sandro Web site.
