Finally, fashion has made a platform for menswear and shone the bright spotlight. The CFDA launched a Men’s Fashion Week and KISH was there to enjoy that moment, in true streetstyle fashion. The New York Fashion Week: Men’s set in motion July 13-16th. On the list were designers such as Duckie Brown, Billy Reid, Public School, Polo Ralph Lauren and Tommy Hilfiger, to name a few. Fashion weeks have had a long history of highlighting and showcasing womenswear, with menswear as an afterthought. This has changed in recent years, and isn’t it exciting to witness this major shift? Many cities have now added a stand-alone fashion week for menswear specifically; Toronto is no exception, having just about finished the 3rd season of TOM*, Toronto Men’s Fashion Week.
For NYFWM, KISH is suited up by Toronto based luxury brand – Jaan Choxi. This menswear luxury brand is the brainchild of Sajan Choxi, who showcased his collection just recently at World Mastercard Fashion Week this past March.
This Canadian menswear label wants to create clothing that is “made to measure for the stylish man”, and we couldn’t agree with this statement more. Jaan Choxi is made to measure by artisans in Canada, and we like it, we like it a lot.
