N. HOOLYWOOD   Spring/Summer 2014 Collection

The vintage aesthetic of the Wild West breathed another life at the N. HOOLYWOOD’s Spring/Summer 2014 Menswear Collection runway show this past week. Apparently head designer Daisuke Obana‘s obsession with all things classic and collectible has lead him to fixate on flannel tops, leather vests, and denim three-piece suits in novel colorways of pastel yellow, minty green, and orange sherbet. Attendees of the show can attest that Obana’s hearty construction of oversized tops, sweaters, and coats were often balanced throughout the show with cigarette-skinny pants or exclamation point ties. And while the softer shades channeled more of a “Stepford Wives” vibe than the brazen (albeit campy) masculinity of a “Spaghetti Western” film, one could not deny the brooding swagger that the models exuded with their eyebrow concealing cowboy hats and huge handkerchiefs tied loosing around their necks. Never knowing what to expect, but dressed for anything that may blow in a cowboy’s way, the collection is a testament to how the West was won.
