Native Son

Apparently if you're gonna go down, you'd better go down in style. Inspired by the great depression the designers of Native Son produced perfectly tailored suits, button downs and jackets and shared them with a bunch of cool kids Tuesday morning at Pier 59 studios. The models were of course, ridiculously good looking, but they didn't have to work too hard to make the clothes look good. Part of what makes the collection great is the fact that the inspiration translates so well. The color palette was strictly neutral - not a single item strayed from black, white, beige or grey. While such limitations run the risk of becoming monotonous, interesting details such as a black pocket on a beige suit and collarlless jackets proved that even the bare minimum can be stunning.
