For Winter 2022, The Academy New York adds menswear to its luxury ready-to-wear offering. Starting from the street and bringing together all different influences and backgrounds, mixing them with music and art, the brand’s seventh season is born. Photographs by Watanabe Katsumi and “Buffalo: Ray Petri” were big influences. The collection picks up on pieces that recur in those pictures, like boxy club shirts and baggy fatigue trousers that come in a suiting floral jacquard. From cutting the sleeves off the Long Chelsea Jacket and leaving the shoulders fucked up and distressed to stamping felt lettering down the leg of an 80’s red sweat suit; spelling out this season’s graphic, Angel. Buffalo meant classic. But it also signified resistance and is used to describe a rebel or rude boy/girl—which is no new trope for The Academy New York. Why? Because they're not here-today-gone-tomorrow fashion.
