MRket Las Vegas Impressions & Details
At MRket, it seems like the parade of interestingly dressed people and remarkable detail of clothing items, such as shoes and bow ties,keeps flowing. Such a gathering is always a good opportunity to gather new ideas, twists on old classics, and challenge oneself to make the most out of a wardrobe with the new season in mind. Here is another selection of noteworthy photos from the show in Vegas.
While, walking the show I found a noteworthy shoes-sock-pants combination. A man was wearing brown suede shoes with yellow soles, green socks and khaki pants. While that is unusual in itself, it is even rarer to find another man with the same color combination – but see for yourself! What are the chances?
Obviously, we have seen a lot of color in suede shoes and hence I was glad to find this shoe: gray suede and boxcalf leather combined. Paired with a charcoal or navy suit, these shoes could make all the difference between a classic business outfit and fashion forward, yet refined look.
Unlike boxcalf leather or cowhide, genuine buffalo hide has a strong grain which gives the leather a more casual appearance. At the same time, it is very durable and will develop a beautiful patina over time. As such, it makes for a great deck /boat shoe or boot.
What did you think of our coverage of the Las Vegas show? Of the numerous impressions we enjoyed of the show, I am happy to see that color will play a strong role in the next season, that manufacturers are paying strong attention to detail, and that classic shapes and forms still run strongly through most of the collections. Trends such as lightweight jackets, suede shoes, fabric blends, as well as patterned and textured fabrics were also personal favorites.
