    Letting go of vintage patinas and rock-star styling, John Varvatos showed a refreshingly modern collection. Mini-check and subtle glen plaid suits had this season’s all-important un-pressed look, while preserving the sharpness of the shoulder and the concave lines of the torso. Cardigans—some gauzy and elongated, others gutsy and militaristic—and sheer layers of jersey and mesh were key elements. Epaulets and metal suit closures injected some toughness. The trouser silhouettes need work, as a flared cut looked dated and a swingy, ankle grazer was simply unflattering. But otherwise Varvatos offered a concise and commercial urban wardrobe, dominated by shades of gray, with shots of yellow, red and cobalt.

    The horizontally striped blazer is cleverly done - I'd like to own it.

    I like the high peak lapels on the suits, especially second from last post #5.
    In post #6 is that a not-supposed-to-be-closed double-breasted suit jacket? That's good.

    Very fresh. However, somehow I feel like many Varvatosians will be dissappointed in this collection. Maybe there will be a swing of demographic for this house.

    I like it, as there are always great pieces in his collections, but something isn't clicking here for me. I don't know why, the formula isn't radically different, but it's missing something. I wish I could put my finger on it.

    Regardless, I like the full length pants with the slight boot cut to them, and the knitwear looks good too (particularly that last open knit zip-up cardigan).
