Robert Geller was outstanding. The models backstage spraying themselves down with Axe? Less so.

Hipster garden party at Bespoken. It's a good fit for the crisp suits and matching shirts and ties.


Motorcycle jackets and monk strap shoes kick off Loden Dager's spring show.

At Duckie Brown's runway show, American Crew unveiled new products for thinning and curly hair.
