Maverick designer Nick Graham, presented his Spring/Summer 2019 collection titled, “1969” at CADILLAC HOUSE during New York Fashion Week: Men’s.
“1969 was one of most transformational years in our history, a year that had not only the first landing on the Moon by Apollo 11 and hosted Woodstock, both pretty pivotal events in our culture.” Graham said.
The collection was inspired by many “1969” moments with models dressed in astronaut inspired bomber jackets, commander pants, and what Graham calls “space suits,” tailored clothing with updated trims for intergalactic journeys.
The presentation culminated with Graham’s youngest fans dancing down the runway in shirts donning the designer’s logo reading “Future Martians.” Afterwards, guests enjoyed cocktails at CADILLAC HOUSE that included the Mission to Mars (gin, muddled blackberries, orange twist) and the Cyclone Margarita (tequila, strawberry, lime, pink pepper, triple sec).
Guests included: Artists Tony Arcabascio, Paul Mathieu & Herve Coeur, and Ricky Clifton; Models Alva Chinn & Taras Romaniv, Fashion’s Edo Ferragamo & Fern Mallis, influencer David Hershkovits & Octavia Mckinney, Actors Miles Mussenden & Sean Ringgold, Athletes Rodney Mcleod & James Sanders, Brad Gooch, Kevin Jonas, Sharika Tharani, Marshall Wade, Cris & Gary Wassner, among many others…
About Nick Graham:
As founder and Chief Underpants Officer of Joe Boxer, Nick Graham changed the face of fashion when he turned his underwear company into one of America’s most popular lifestyle brands. Sensing an opportunity that the American men are increasingly frustrated with the choices they have in Menswear, Graham launched his first eponymous brand in 2014 to address what he defines as the “Perennial Millennial” consumer. The Nick Graham brand produces suiting’s, dress shirts; neckwear, underwear, hosiery, outerwear and cold weather accessories and are available in stores throughout the US. In 2017, Tharanco Group of New York made an investment in the brand to allow the company to expand further.
