Chapter F/W 2016

Dark and androgynous, Chapter’s Fall/Winter 2016 collection, Admission, by designer Devin Carlson, is a tribute to the movie “Swingers,” and the neo-swing movement from the Nineties. “I wanted to take the next direction because I feel like a lot of men’s wear is getting stale,” said Carlson. The current menswear obsession with ath-leisurewear is flooding the market with dozens of designers hopping aboard. Zzzz. Masculine tailoring was offset by soft draping, shown

on both men and women. Free from embellishment and subtly detailed, the collection featured high-waisted, dropped-crotch trousers with a fuller leg, some with a more tapered fit, signifying a more timely approach to classics. Turtlenecks, t-shirts and short-collared button-downs topped the wider silhouette. The overcoats and long bomber jackets carried out the feeling in dark neutral browns and grays. Clearly, Chapter’s Admission is what Millennials will adore.
