As promised in my previous blog post, I have more content to share from my project with Perry Ellis around their latest runway show! If you guys were following along on social media last week, you know that I was in New York for Men’s Fashion Week and working on a cool behind-the-scenes collaboration with Perry Ellis.
The morning of the show, I spent some time in the Perry Ellis showroom going through their massive (and I mean MASSIVE) archive collections to put together a look for the show. I’m not going to lie, I felt like a kid in a candy store with all of the options that I had to choose from. I ended up narrowing it down to my top three looks and with your guys help via Instagram, I opted for the look below.
The hustle and bustle during a show at New York Fashion Week is like no other! You’ve got a full crew of make up artists, hairstylists, male models, dressers, pr, photographers, videographers, bloggers etc… it’s nuts! When I arrived, the models were just getting ready to run through their final rehearsal and then back upstairs for any last minute make up touches and into their first look!
10 minutes before the show began, I made my way downstairs to be seated and catch up with a few of my blogger buddies attending the show.
The show had a very clean and minimal routine for the models, allowing guests to really take in the clothing. I, myself was a huge fan of this presentation, specifically as I felt that it gave a true nod to the heritage of the brand. There was a lot of vintage feels coming down the runway, especially the jackets (which I love) but with a modern twist.
The thing that I liked the most about this collection was that there was something to wear for every occasion in a man’s every day life. It really showed how much thought the creative director Michael Maccari and his team put into it all. .
I can’t wait to get my hands on some of those pieces and see what they come up with next!

I will be needing this jacket, it’s so my vibe!
I love the fit of this athleisure look and the colour choices! I’ll take the yellow jacket with black accents in a medium please and thanks!
