For the past 3 seasons I had tried to get an invite to Perry Ellis so I was over joyed by the fact that I got an invite to the Fall 2013 show, who cares if I had a standing ticket I was just so happy to be there. The small seating arrangements at the Highlines stages at first seemed to be empty but as time grew closer to the start it began to fill up, once everyone got situated the house music came on and it was show time. There was no denying that the woods was an inspiration to this line by designers Steven Cox and Daniel Silver. This Perry Ellis show was different then those I have viewed (online and in-store), this didn't have your usual casual menswear feel but much more rustic, woodsy, and a little more fashion forward. I'm a classic menswear lover, so tailored suits is the way to this woman's heart-- along with classic patterns and colors. I wasn't sure how to feel about the paisley prints (don't think I'd want to see my man in them) or the bright mustard yellows (to feminine for my liking). I did however love the more classic pieces to this collection, like the grey tailored suits. I did also liked the olive greens that were seen through out, which is a much more masculine color. I wouldn't mind seeing my guy dressed in the burgundy or olive green pea coat...even though he wouldn't even know it was by Perry Ellis (he had to ask who these designers were even though he has a couple of pieces in his closet that are Perry Ellis). Overall, I was impressed by the sophomore debut of these designers work.

What do you think of these menswear collections? Would you want your guy dressed in any of these pieces?
