Matiere, French for “material,” is a fresh luxury menswear brand that just displayed their latest Spring/Summer 2016 collection this week at Men’s Fashion Week 2015.

Known for their harmonious mixture of form, function, and comfort that is put into their polished modern aesthetic, the brand uses premium fabrics that you would not normally expect. The founders Scot Shandalove and Creative Director Jake Zeitlin’s enthusiasm for music, art and travel are carefully integrated into each collection demonstrating the artistic attitude of the Matiere men.

The Spring/Summer 2016 collection was all about textured modernism for men who want to wear lounge wear that is more on the up-scale side. The fabrics of the luxury loungewear were hand picked by the founders that consisted of dense cotton slub, brushed cashmere, and 3-D striped French Terry. Off-white, dusted grey and city black ground the collection with hues of bleached and true indigo. Outerwear was also an important focal point of the collection with reworked bomber jackets and anoraks that presented seasonal layering options. Additional pieces included baseball shirts, gussetted pants, and the continuation of the brand’s adored Henley tank top. This collection overall proved to us that men can look still look stylish even when they are dressing casual and lounging out.

Nothing caught our attention more than the details. Laser cut pockets and collarless necklines expressed the collection’s sense of modernism, while split hems and hi-lo silhouettes that reflected its streetwise spirit.

With Matiere’s Summer/Spring 16 collection offering us innovation and excitement, New York Style Guide looks forward to see what Matiere has in store for the future!
