Last night I had the pleasure of attending Omaha Fashion Week’s Menswear Runway Show. Fellow menswear enthusiast Chris Hughes, the designer behind Artifact Bag Co., joined me for the event.
While Chris and I both love menswear, we have drastically different tastes. I knew it was going to be interesting to go to this show with him. In the venn diagram of our favorites from the night, I think there was maybe just a single look that overlapped from his favorites and mine. It was an ensemble by designer Borris Powell.
My all-time favorite menswear look of the evening was an outfit by designer Paulie Gibson. It reminded me of the easy summer go-to outfit: t-shirt and shorts, but awesome instead of lame. A draped, asymmetrical shirt made out of an interesting fabric paired with fitted, patterned shorts makes this outfit totally covetable. Plus, it seems to be just the perfect level of masculinity that I like to wear myself. Really into this one.
As I was enjoying Paulie Gibson’s eclectic design flair on the runway, I wondered what Chris Hughes thought of this spectacle. His face proves that he was genuinely entertained.
I just love menswear. So glad that I had the chance to see a few collections shown here in Omaha. Hope to see even more next season!
