Debuting their Fall/Winter 17 collection on the last day of New York Fashion Week Men’s, in a smoke brimmed room of moody male models and an awe-struck crowd, the LA based menswear brand shook the scene with a presentation true to urbane militance. Driving a “tough guy gear” aesthetic, looks included vintage bomber jackets, shabby knitwear, graffiti engraved sweatsuits, classic retro jackets, and shredded denim. 

As models are the adornment of fashion week, Stampd’s cast pushed a high-end edge, and laid quite befitting to the brand’s streetwear vibe.  A more withheld, insightful recount of Men’s Fashion Week, we caught up with 5  male models for their quick thoughts on Stampd’s FW17 collection, and some rather short(as they were rushing off to other shows) responses to their highlights of NYFWM’s. 

 

Post ‘Asphalt Wave’ experience. Full collection and show recap coming soon. 📸 @creationsofla
