jahnhall for GEORGE McCRACKEN

Artist turned menswear designer George McCracken took his craft back home, making the Winkleman Gallery (located on 27th Street between 11th and 12th Avenues in Manhattan) a temporary exhibit / showroom for his S/S '09 collection.  In doing so, George successfully merges his established career as an artist with his second menswear collection.

The collection borrows from the 90's minimalist platform, but treads lightly, warming up a steel grey exterior with a sophisticated color palette.  Denim is slim and straight and knitwear of merino wool and cashmere makes the well-edited range extremely wearable however, don't be fooled.  S/S '09 remains loyal to a utilitarian approach inspired greatly by vintage military uniforms.

Of note, a black parka made of a 70% wool composite produced by Loro Piana, completely waterproof, is already on my list of must-haves come January, 2009.

George McCracken's inaugural collection arrives early August exclusively at Bergdorf Goodman.
