A relaxed approach to West Coast style for FW16
SECOND/LAYER has unveiled its latest collection during NYFW:Men’s, marking the first time the burgeoning brand has graced the NYFW stage. Last season, designers Joshua Willis and Anthony Franco were selected by (capsule) Show as one of the seven designers to show five key looks from their collection.
According to Joshua Willis of Second/Layer, the Fall/Winter 2016 season was primarily inspired by “the clean-ass pobrecito coming down the street in his low-rider chillin’, and always getting girls.” There’s definitely a chill California vibe in the clothes, which have always been indicative of that distinct, relaxed approach to West Coast style without being specifically tied to the Golden Coast.
Standout pieces included baby calf leather jackets in bright blues, and charcoal gray bombers with cheeky statements printed on them in tiny typeface that reads “she’s only with you, WHEN SHE’S WITH YOU.” The brand is definitely an up and coming name and one to watch.
