The Cfda announces a slim calendar for the upcoming men’s fashion shows. Zero surprises even for women’s fashion, apart from one: Tom Ford is ready to parade co-ed


The texan designer has made it known that he will be presenting at the New York Fashion Week both the men’s and women’s collections for the autumn-winter 2019/2020 on the evening of 6 February: the last of the three tight days dedicated to menswear.

A welcome return, given the general lack of big brands in the men’s schedule.

Among the other appointments for him announced by the Council of fashion designers of America are in fact only names unknown to most: it opens with Joseph Abboud on Monday 4 February, followed by Todd Snyder.

On February 5th will be protagonists Robert Geller, Ovadia & sons, Dyne, N. Hoolywood, Landlord and Linder.

The names speak for themselves, not to mention that, as we read on MF Fashion, a change of dates has also meant that Project, the Las Vegas salon dedicated to men’s fashion, goes on stage right in concomitance with fashion week, together at the Liberty and Agenda fairs, all scheduled from 5 to 7 February.

With consequent dispersion of the attention of buyers and journalists.

Which, unfortunately, does not seem high even for the American women’s fashion week that will start soon after (until February 16) with Ralph Lauren on February 7th.

If Longchamp reconfirms his presence in New York after his first défilé last September for the 70th anniversary, among the absent are still Victoria Beckham (in London), Escada, Pyer Moss and Rodarte (who will fly to Los Angeles).

There will be Nicole Miller (7 February), Jeremy Scott (8 February), Tory Burch (10 February), Oscar de la Renta (12 February). In closing, on February 13, as usual, Marc Jacobs arrives.

Will this year be enough to save the controversial fortunes of American fashion week? We’ll see.
