Immersing us in a realm of sartorial sophistication, Todd Snyder’s fall-winter 2023 collection, “American Classics,” pays homage to the influential American visionaries of the 1950s and 60s.
Snyder envisions the wardrobe of these creative giants in the present day, drawing inspiration from an imagining of Philip Johnson’s elegant sketches for The Glass House and Miles Davis’ evocative sessions for Kind of Blue. This season, the designer channels the mid-century penchant for elegant attire, blending it with contemporary, relaxed silhouettes.
Todd Snyder once again joins forces with the talented photographer Kenny Thomas and stylist Jim Moore to bring his vision to life. Representing the quintessential stylish man this season is the dashing trio of Erik van Gils, Nigel Herrenauw, and Pratik Shetty. The models showcase an array of covetable ensembles featuring warm, neutral hues punctuated by the occasional vibrant accent.
Exquisite tailoring takes center stage with tweed, wool, silk, corduroy, and velvet materials. Snyder presents generously cut overcoats, leather jackets, and bombers for outerwear, exuding an air of carefree refinement. Complementing the lineup of relaxed trousers are cozy cardigans, collarless tops, and polished shirting. Ultimately, Todd Snyder masterfully combines the essence of elegance and sartorial excellence with an unpretentious, effortless attitude.
