Ovadia and Sons at NYFW Men’s
The Ovadia and Sons FW17 collection reminisces the twin designers’ childhood days in Israel with their father, who was a professional soccer player and a scripted solder. The first look summarizes it all; a yellow long sleeve soccer jersey printed with Ovadia & Sons in hebrew is matched with military camo pants, executing the twin designer’s nostalgia of his father’s multiple roles in life.
The 80s nostalgia is well played in this collection in which maroon color sweater with rugged hem is worn under a leopard-print scarf with similar rugged edges. Oversized sweater drapes in gold and forest green bold stripes, orange bomber jacket with fur lining, sherpa style jacket, varsity jacket, and track pants recreated the 80’s fashion. Whether the collection includes 80’s elements elsewhere in the world or just in the designer’s childhood memories of Israel, the collection impresses us that fashion, can really unite us all.
