On Monday, September 12th I attended a private runway presentation of designer Ray Vincente, as part of the Lawrence Blake Couture Series® at the Bryant Park Hotel’s Cellar Bar. Set against the room’s vaulted gray brick ceiling and medieval chandeliers, the designer presented special pieces from his Spring/Summer 2012 menswear collection.
The collection, a high fashion men’s sportswear line, featured crisp white, clean pieces with modest pops of color. Some of the clothing shown were nonchalant of the urban preppy vibe, which contrasted with pieces that featured edgy fabrics and elaborate detailing. The clothing is very stylish, and targeted towards men who have a strong fashion sense, and want to add a sophisticated, high-end aesthetic to their look.
The show’s host Carlos Anaya, known as the Latino Ryan Seacrest, made sure to inform the audience about the important cause behind the fashion presentation – all proceeds from the event benefited the National MS Society.
