Fix and Fax SS2020 @NYFW

By Posted on 1 min read 1492 views

Another Fashion Week has come and gone here in New York. And as usual for the February shows the weather did not cooperate. It rained five out of the seven days with some truly crazy weather on the seventh. It was a challenge at times to keep dry but when it came to attending shows I didn’t let it stop me, though I did not shoot as much street style as I would have liked. And as usual as soon as Fashion Week ends the weather calms down. Go figure.

Though a bit soggy my Fashion Week kicked off with a menswear show at Spring Studios on the evening of the sixth. I attended the Fix and Fax SS2020 menswear show by Katya Leonovich who also designs women’s wear. With an odd sounding name and ambiguous intonation, it is not surprising that the name of the Katya’s menswear line is named after her pet rats. I could be wrong, but it just may be the first time in fashion history that a menswear line was named for a pair of pet rats. Katya even created a print from a series of paintings she did of the pair, which it made it’s appearance in the Fall 2019 lineups. And this independent rebellious spirit carries through for SS2020, and is expressed in a vibrant, color saturated collection of unexpected takes on the male physique.

Using raw silk from India, organza, nylon and pop art prints Katya creates a unique world of casual streetwear with the flair of a rockstar. With iridescent finishes, metallic sheens and neon colors the lineup is standout of color and form. From vinyl like trenches, to faux fur kimono coats, nasa inspired jumpsuits and brilliant pop art prints the collection for SS2020 is a bold, take no prisoners approach to the often less bodacious world of menswear.

    Hi Allie, hope you’re having a great time in FW! So great you’re having the opportunity to be there again 🙂

    I have been taking a look at your coverage on IG stories and I love to see runways and of course the street style!

    Love the color palette of this proposal: so vivid, full of quirky attitude and vibrant. Actually I love that menswear is taking a huge step behind in many collections, daring to propose more things than the usual collections.

    Best!

    Such an interesting collection !
    The fabrics this designer used are really different from what we’re used to see into menswear.
    I love the velvets and the fur coat is stunning !

    Oh my goodness! I’m in love with some of these pieces and I hope (LOL! Like I’ll ever own a piece) they come in small enough sizes for women, too! Like that one silver top with the piece of fabric that drops down from it and looks like a wrap-style shirt – beautiful! And I love that the designer has pet rats (they really are sweet little creatures) and that she named this line after them! Thanks so much for sharing this. I think it’s raining everywhere and now it’s not but it’s darned cold (for north Texas….25F). I’m so over winter!

    Oh, what a pity the weather was that awful! And I like what you show from this brand – although I have to admit that I don’t know any man in my real life who would wear this …

    I love the mens fashion line from Spring Studios! It is interesting to see how men can rock different pieces but still tell a story. The colors and texture of the outfits is different but still holds into piece. Thanks for sharing!

    These are some serious and bod designs. And man am I loving it. I would love to see more guys dressing up in colour and being more fearless in fashion. Maybe it’s just me but I feel like male fashion has been more stale than ever. I also love the name. I think it’s more odd to name your pet rat fax then to have a pet rat hahahaha!

    The boys came out to play! I love that men’s fashion is so bold right now and blurring lines of what’s classically been reserved for women’s lines. Brilliant and fun!
