Jack Spade Fall 2014 NYFW Presentati​on

February 5, 2014 - (NYC) No longer just a briefcases, wallets, and accessories brand, Jack Spade has expanded its portfolio to include its new line of fashionable clothes and accessories. At their first appearance at New York Fashion Week, Jack Spade showed a collection of modernized American staples with a bias for simplicity, warmth and utility.

The collection was inspired by the design philosophies of George Nakashima and Warton Eshrick, both of whom worked with wood and humble materials. They both created furniture and objects in there simplest form with a sense of the human hand. Jack Spade took the same approach and cut everything in classic fabrics and familiar silhouettes. The brand stripped away unnecessary details and, instead, focused on function and utility in both the bags and apparel with a few moments of levity in soft goods and styling.

Even though the brand did away with frivolous detail this season, much was added to the collection as well, including an expertly tailored suiting collection. Never a brand to be too serious about anything, Jack Spade did manage to keep its cheekiness, pairing sleek jackets with quirky suede, signaling a fun, yet stylish new direction for the collection.

About the Brand:

JACK SPADE began in 1996 out of a warehouse on Warren Street in New York City. With a commitment to classic men's style and fashion, the brand set out to add its name to the pantheon of great American clothiers such as J Press, Brooks Brothers, and Hickey Freeman. The company's philosophy is that well made clothing should be honest, thoughtfully designed and have a practical  purpose.
