Cadillac is poised to take over the menswear market. After sponsoring its first ever Men’s Fashion Week, the brand is making its second foray into the fashion world by announcing its first ever capsule collection.
The collection has a twist, of course. The duds will not actually be designed by Cadillac, but by a group of important young designers that belong to the New York Men’s Day group. As curated by street style icon Nick Wooster, the 15 piece Fall/Winter 2015 collection will serve as a pre-cursor to Men’s fashion week and will include pieces by David Hart, Ernest Alexander and Cadet, Mark McNairy New Amsterdam, J. Lindeberg, Timo Weiland and Gents.
“Getting dressed is a form of self-expression, and today, men are more attuned than ever to the possibilities in front of them,” says Wooster. “My approach to curating this collection with Cadillac was to show a spectrum of ideas that can fit into a variety of lifestyles. We’ve worked with a cross section of some of the most interesting emerging designers to create a collection that is, in my opinion, stylish, appropriate and cool.”
Wooster, who is based in New York, has worked in fashion for over 30 years with brands such as Barneys New York, Bergdorf Goodman and Neiman Marcus chain stores, as well as Calvin Klein, Polo Ralph Lauren and Thom Browne.
His curated collection will range in price from $59 to $2000 and will be available come September 9th on gilt.com.
There will also be a NYC special kick-off, VIP-only, pre-debut shopping event on September 1.
