Southern California native and designer behind Krammer & Stoudt, Mark Rubin, premiered his Fall 2017 collection at New York Men’s Day.
The vagabond style presentation took place inside of a dark room backlit by a projector with freight train sounds, chanting, and other ambient noises. Models looked like stylish run-a-ways as they posed on railroad tracks sporting a mixture of flannels, deconstructed denim, belted trench coats, beanie hats, and bandannas. The earth-toned collection also consisted of pieces with rustic textures, patchwork pockets, wools, and tweed. Models were styled in layers upon layers with a sort of thrown together feel, think Boho Grunge if you will. The overall aesthetic was youthful rebellion.
There was also a live spoken word performance “If your country called you to fight . . . would you go? If American called I would go fight!”
