YMC AW15

A label renowned  for not working to one theme or conforming to a particular seasonal trend, the YMC men’s AW15 collection stays true to the brands ethos and offers a melange  sportswear, workwear and 90’s minimalist infused with 80’s NYC No-wave attitude.

With an emphasis on a luxurious look and feel to the collection, clean lines and relaxes shapes provide the silhouette to the ultimate smart casual wardrobe.  A palette of navy, black and grey is lifted with pops of yellow, blush pink and bright green with  playful patterns such as the hand finished Pollock-esque flick paint, bold stripes and checks providing graphic appeal.

Fabrics include soft Nappa leather, sheepskin and unique bonded wool and metal which gives a 3-D like effect.  Modern neoprene and wool bonds provide a sportier take on traditional textiles and the use of blank wool gives a more rustic feel.

Collection highlights include the Nappa leather tracksuit, the sheepskin jacket, the metal and wool donkey jacket, the cropped Kilt blazer, the wool flannel tracksuit and the woven checkered shirt.  Vintage comic book horror prints provide a pop art feel to jersey wear and smock style knits and cashmere blends add a sophistication to knitwear.

Accessories include a wide brimmed wool fedora hat which is completely foldable and a blocked riding cap both of which have been developed for YMC by British milliners Christy’s.

A key addition to the new season collection is a collaboration with the iconic American footwear brand Sperry with two classic styles in suede.
