Boss channels the Empire City

Feb 14, 2019

On the closing day of this season’s New York Fashion Week, Hugo Boss presented a co-ed runway show that celebrated the style and sophistication of the Big Apple.

Pulling from the city’s art world and architecture, the Fall/Winter 2019 show appropriately took place in the gallery district of Chelsea, presenting men’s and women’s looks that were rooted in the German luxury house’s suiting heritage.

Guests like Dylan Sprouse, Barbara Palvin and Richard Madden watched as models took to the catwalk in tailored coats and capes in shearling, alpaca and cashmere, paired with luxe knits in monochrome and striped varieties, as well as a number of pieces with a Mondrian-esque pattern.

Accessories like maxi-envelope clutches, structured duffel bags, chunky boots and dress shoes pulled looks together for an uber-cool yet understated finish. 

Colors were generally kept to a minimalistic palette of white, black, camel, biscuit and gray with sparing use of yellow and blue, all the better to accentuate the collection’s sculptural silhouettes.

On occasion, this muted range of shades was abruptly interrupted by bursts of looks in pink, including a stand-out tone-on-tone pink women’s trouser and a men’s anorak in dark pink that chaneled a strong athleisure undertone.

The latest collection comes on the heels of Hugo Boss’s positive Q4 report, which showed sales for the quarter rising 7% and indicated that full-year profits are set to increase thanks to strong growth in the UK, France and China, as well as on the label’s updated e-commerce platform.
