In his debut for Perry Ellis, Michael Maccari excels the American icon with the brand’s main collection paired with  sophisticated play of fabrics, color, pattern and layers. Inspired by his environment,  New York City’s architectural grids, linear elements along with the work of artist Sean Scully and his repetitive stripe sequences and bold colors, Mr. Maccari invited a fresh view on timeless dressing and layering. Unexpected fabrics and bold, playful patterns cue a new “uniform” and introduce a new take on wear-to-work wear.  Performance textiles dressed up and alternatively refined dress fabrics were shown in active silhouettes. In a nod to the brand’s namesake, refreshing patterns, black-and-white graphics, tonal checker-boards and bold striping will punctuate the collection. In this newest offering from Perry Ellis, Mr. Maccari introduces athletic layers, fresh details and a glazed, modern palette to create an honest approach to blending active and sportswear. 10397835_638046806318868_2440739543336214058_n
