They have never actually meant anything to me, until now.
Hickey Freeman has begun an aggressive introduction of the younger, much younger and far hipper Hickey collection. I had seen Hickey before in Bergdorfs, (honestly I had only noticed the sportcoats) but the collection is now front and center on my radar. I love the ads (above), what a way to shake up the stodgy image I had of the brand. It was just about….no, it was….the best thing I saw at the Designer Collective and ,best of all, the prices are great.
For someone , like me, who doesn’t have to wear a suit every day they have a lot of options.
I’m big on color, pattern and texture-they do a great job using all three, and sometimes all three in one jacket. I loved the olive/brown corduroy, camouflage print sportcoat that they had at Bergdoef for Fall 2005 and the quilted camouflage version for Fall 2006.
I have to make it up to the showroom for a more indepth Fall 2006 preview, I’ll keep you posted.
