New York Men’s Day is shaking things up this year with a new location for the biannual menswear presentations set for January 30. This year, editors and buyers will be heading to Dune Studios at 55 Water Street in the heart of the Financial District. (Industria is tied up this year with the must-see Rolling Stones exhibition that runs until March). Twelve emerging designers will be showing fall/winter over two-hour periods, with six designers showing in the morning and six in the late afternoon. On the lineup this season are Bristol, David Hart, David Naman, Krammer & Stoudt, Kozaburo, Maiden Noir, Max ‘n Chester, Private Policy, R.Swiader, Robert James, Uri Minkoff, and Wood House.
“It never ceases to amaze me the amount of talent there is in menswear today and we are proud to be presenting New York Men’s Day for the 7th consecutive season,” founder Erin Hawker said in a statement. “This season, we decided to bring NYMD to Dune Studios, a new photo studio that offers a variety of spaces all on one floor for our presentations all the while overlooking the East River with an impeccable panoramic view of lower Manhattan. The new location ushers in new emerging talents and the return of menswear favorites which we are honored to have as part of the New York Men’s Day family.”
Sponsors of NYMD include Oribe, which will provide hair services; Augment, which will supply make-up team and products; and Lab Series, which will provide skincare. Prior to NYMD this year, Project will display looks from the designers at the Jacob Javits Center from January 23-25, and will host a VIP lounge onsite at NYMD for attendees.
