Cadillac Capsule Collection Launch

As NYFW: Women's quickly approaches, the menswear community is still hellbent on dominating the fashion industry headlines.  The official launch party for the first ever Cadillac Capsule Collection took place Sept. 1 at the Classic Car Club and was an exercise in modern American masculinity.

The collection, specially curated by menswear giant Nick Wooster, was neatly displayed throughout the venue pinned against black and white images from the collection's campaign. Among many other designers, exclusive pieces from David Hart, Cadet, and Earnest Alexander were included.  The collection will be sold at gilt.com/CadillacCapsule, and these one of a kind pieces won't be available anywhere else.  The idea behind the collection is to bring the selections from featured New York Men's Day designers to a wider audience. 

With small eats and cocktails curated by Chef JJ of The Cecil and a banging DJ set from indie darling Brenmar, the atmosphere proved to be just as cool as the apparel.

Be sure to mark your calendars and shop these amazing pieces when the collection goes live September 9!
