NEW BLOOD: Although issues with the timing and impact of New York Fashion Week have driven some major American men’s wear designers to show in Europe, New York clearly has no trouble attracting newcomers. At last count there were 42 men’s collections on the calendar, via 20 coed and 22 men’s-only shows (or presentations). That total seems to be a record high, even though it doesn’t happen to include Calvin Klein, John Varvatos or Thom Browne, which already showed in Europe in June. Apart from the megabrands with coed shows, the heaviest hitters planning men’s shows are Michael Bastian, Duckie Brown, Perry Ellis and Rag & Bone.
