YESTERDAY, Tuesday July 10th at SPACE7 (located in Hell’s Kitchen) A_I_R took over the roof and Manhattan skyline for the brands first show during Men’s Fashion Week in New York City. The SS19 collection featured the brands signature prints and relaxed ‘Cali’ style. Notable guests included designer Richie Rich.
A_I_R’s SS19 collection debuts its second season during Men’s New York Fashion Week. Spring 2019 A_I_R asked Artist Sharon Lee to carve certain animals and objects that have multiple meanings to the brand (tigers, bats, flowers, suns). From there, what would be created is a visceral palette of color, silhouette and style that references the past, harkens to the future, and sits squarely in the here and now.
