WOODHOUSE GETS PLAYFUL FOR SPRING/SUMMER 2018
David Hart presented his spring/summer 2018 collection at the 8th biannual New York Men’s Day held at Dune Studios. Always an exciting show, Hart’s premium hand tailored clothing offers a mix of retro with a modern day flair. This season Hart channeled Cuban tourism or at least the idea of it as inspiration for his collection. As Hart has yet to visit the Caribbean Island for himself. He pulled Cuban references from music, photos, and cinema.
Hart did a fantastic job setting the mood, which was felt as soon as I stepped foot into the room. The runway was lined with Cuban style tiles, there were the palm plants, palm trees, and music to match. The collection was bright, colorful, fresh, and fun. With sharply tailored clothing that we expect as well as sportswear. There were: tropical print short-sleeve shirts, boldly striped blazers, sash-like neck scarves, Panama hats, and bermuda-ish shorts. Pant suits ranged in color from cream, navy, and a sand-like brown. Stand out colors was an orange reminiscent of my grandmother’s favorite sorbet, to a special kind of red that had me thinking of bloody mary cocktails on a white sanded beach. The most memorable look for me, hands down was the mint green suit pants and matching blazer paired with a banana print camp shirt, ¡increíble!
Hart also showed two women’s wear looks that would pair perfectly with the David Hart guy. The ladies wore pleated high-waist pants with tie-off shirts. The beach vibes were felt and I left the show feeling ready to pack my bags and head off to Cuba. For any readers in the US that are feeling the Cuban spirit, you may want to plan a trip sooner than later considering Trump’s plans to pull back on tourism from the US to Cuba.
