Iris Apfel continues to prove that age is but a number as she marked her 100th birthday in serious style by announcing a new collection with H&M.

Men’s Makes a Showing at New York Fashion Week

Men’s wear generally takes a backseat to women’s during New York Fashion Week, and this year was no exception, with most of the big names merely sprinkling a couple of men’s looks into their shows. But there were a handful of men’s-specific showings, nearly all during New York Men’s Day, which returned with a flourish on Wednesday with 10 emerging designers presenting their collections at two separate showcases at Canoe Studios on Manhattan’s far west side. KoH T, Onyrmrk, Stan, Teddy Vonranson and William Frederick showed in the morning while A.Potts, Carter Young, Chelsea Grays, Fried Rice and The Stolen Garment displayed their wares in the afternoon. In nearly all the collections, colorful prints and patterns were juxtaposed with a subdued palette of neutrals in soft sportswear and slouchy tailored clothing. Here are a few of the standouts.

According to WWD, the London-based company enjoyed steady growth in sales over the past year, to the point that it had to suspend its marketing as demand for its products outstripped supply. The new funding — led by Index Ventures and
