PAPER
on the front lines of cultural chaos since 1984.
With the countless snowpocalypses we've experienced this season (meaning the past few months, and not necessarily the current runway showings), what an unexpected yet immense pleasure it was to step into the presentation of Antonio Azzuolo's a.a. collection, held yesterday at Jack Studios. Primarily an homage to ski-slope elegance that hearkened back to the 1930s -- powder-blue sweaters, boucle tweed bowties, and fox trimmed overcoats -- Azzuolo's hooded takes on the monastic bandeau and wimple and white fur muff-glove hybrids added an apocalyptic feel to the collection. Dapper, refined, detailed, and thoughtful - such a bright vision for the fall, such a bright talent for menswear.
