Native Son @ Fashion Week 2012
by Tyrone Spencer – Cur8eur fashion contributor & I.CON blog Founder
Kyle Fitzgibbons gets it right every season with his label Native Son – he always manages to craft modern, finely tailored American sportswear that feels classic.
The presentation was a collection of cohesive and wearable looks anchored by his suits under cropped leather jackets in jet black and rich, worn-in browns but there was also a new surprise which allowed the whole collection to feel more accessible and broken in: His offering of denim.
”Fall/Winter 2012 marks the first of a four season collaboration with North Carolina based Raleigh Denim. The collaboration was birthed out of a desire to develop a product that was rooted in American culture and manufacture it in the same way it was when jeans were first constructed in the 1880′s. Our interest in working with Raleigh Denim is based on the shared principle of making things correctly, no matter the cost or time.” -Native Son on their collab with Raleigh Denim:
