Perry Ellis Men’s Spring 2015

Screen shot 2014-09-04 at 11.21.38 PMA Perry Ellis man wears a backpack with his suit. When he wants to dress down, he trades the backpack for a fanny pack. And he prefers to sport his Birkenstocks with socks.

Sound attractive? It’s not. But credit to designer Michael Maccari for toying with placements and proportions for his first runway show. Take his piping on track pants—traced on the inside of the leg—or the severely cropped windbreakers, which actually look alright worn over a suit. Sometimes taking a risk pays off.
