Todd Snyder Spring 2015 runway collection
In his first runway collection, Todd Snyder focused on what he does best: infusing minimalist basics with a modern twist. “We’re reinventing the classics, like a crisp white shirt, chinos or a suit,” he said backstage before the show. The marriage of function and form was best displayed in cropped utilitarian bombers, an updated leisure suit jacket and cargo shorts. Snyder’s use of graphics on T-shirts and tanks — a first for him — provided a playful diversion, while the suede and leather jackets offered elevated options. Snyder may consider his lineup classic, but his attention to detail pushes the collection into true fashion territory.
