Fashion Week: Perry Ellis

February 13, 2011 by Lila Delilah

Big coats, thick blazers, shawl-neck sweaters and robes, knit hats and legwarmers were sent down the Perry Ellis runway in a way your local senator might dress if he were having a casual weekend at the lodge. Creative director, John Crocco was uniquely able to combine a look that is both modern and waspy. It was an interesting juxtaposition of aesthetics that happened to work quite well.

Standout item: Pepper grey legwarmers, which are popping up everywhere this season.

Our take: This is perfect for the classic, reserved American man.
