With his experience as the creative director of the urban boutique Boylston Trading Co and his production of “The Butcher’s Block” style shows, Frank “the Butcher” Rivera has more than enough fashion sense to school the scruffy.
Here, in his second collection of his line Business As Usual (BAU), Rivera revisits his scholastic concept on a set of gray, black, white tops and matching headgear. The familiar, mischievous BAU mascot graces our sights again on hats as well as on t-shirts, and the classic logo reappears on elongated hoodies and sweaters in noticeable gold or white lettering. Boasting more stretch than last season’s 100% cotton apparel, the pieces composed of French Terry in this collection are arguably more adaptive for the athletically inclined. But stepping up the bar for style innovation has never been a challenge for Rivera’s fashion sense: The BAU Fall/Winter 2013 Collection Lookbook is just business as usual.
