Undeniably the most famous green-space in any city in the world, Central Park is an icon that evokes a distinct emotion, aura, image. The thought of the average park brings most people straight to summer, but Central Park is undeniably fall. Crisp air and an ever-present crunching of leaves underfoot, the color palate of Central Park is an array of browns and mustard-yellows, moss greens and rich reds, which has been artfully incorporated into a range within this season’s Bogner Man collection. Featured in the range are warm jacket styles perfect for a leisurely stroll, trousers, sweaters and cardigans for a comfortable yet still Manhattan-chic look.
The quilted down jacket, minus the quilting: Bogner Man has completely re-invented the down jacket this season featuring innovative ThinDown technology.
With its incredibly diverse history, SoHo fashion is understandably complex: the area itself experienced several periods of rapid growth and stagnation, as well as a seemingly endless flux of residential and industrial usage. In the mid-19th century, rapid expansion of large commercial establishments in the area led to the construction of the numerous large cast-iron buildings SoHo is famous for. These buildings were abandoned after WWII, starting a period of decline. In the 1960’s, artists attracted by the large, unoccupied spaces of the buildings, began using them as studio lofts, beginning the revitalization of the borough. Today, SoHo is known as a high fashion, high-art district, brimming with small boutiques and galleries. Thus, the fashion of SoHo is unmistakably modern, but deeply intertwined with the essence of the neighborhood’s diverse urban history. The SoHo range of the new Bogner Man collection features subtly complex patterns, rich industrial-urban colors and refined, classic cuts.
The Upper East Side of Manhattan is among the most affluent neighborhoods in the world. Originally the site of fishing camps of the Lenape tribes, it became a favored settlement area for wealthier European immigrants. As the area became better connected to the rest of the city – and to other cities like Boston – more residents settled there. Before the Park Avenue tunnel was completed in 1910, wealthy New York residents such as Andrew Carnegie, the Rockefellers and the Roosevelts, seeking to move away from the smoky railroad trenches, came in and built the fashionable townhouses and mansions along Fifth Avenue that the neighborhood became famous for. Historic landmarks such as Central Park and the Metropolitan Museum of Art enhanced the neighborhood’s beauty and affluence. Naturally, the style of the Upper East Side is sleek, classic and obviously highly refined. The Upper East Side range of the new Bogner Man collection is defined by dark, muted tones such as black, slate and dark aquamarine, in cuts that are clearly high-class, but modestly understated.
