We headed downtown during New York Fashion Week to go backstage at menswear designer Andre Landeros Michel’s show, Landeros New York at Open House on Houston Street. Michel’s debut collection drew from his love of Goth and the atmospheric sounds of of the New Wave and New Romantic music of nightclubbing in the ’80s.

Landeros, winner of the Prevue Visionary Award in 2013 and 2012, recently graduated from Parsons School of Design and was chosen as one of 30 international artists to create an Ice Art & Design Suite for the 2009-2010 hotel season in the Artic Circle in Jukkasjarvi, Sweden. The new Landeros New York collection featured models wearing unconventional luxury with original accessories and footwear customized with mohair, muskrat and raw Chinese silk.

Michel also worked with double-faced cashmere, wool bouclé, silk charmeuse, wool crepe, silver fox, raccoon, sable and neoprene for his collection. Phew!
