Fashion shows are not put together in a day. For New York Fashion Week: Men’s, photographer Shawn Brackbill is following a few of our favorite designers, from their pre-show fittings to their final bow.


No fashion show at least in part inspired by the 1980s would be complete without a few splashes of neon, and Robert Geller’s Spring 2017 menswear collection delivered triumphantly: the muted palette was accentuated with bubblegum pink shorts, black and yellow shirts, and lime green pants. The German-born, New York-based designer looked back to a Berlin before the fall of the Wall for this collection—so of course punk and New Wave made appearances too, in the form of leopard print jacquards, velvet vests, and safety-pin accessories.
