Several words are synonymous with superstar label Perry Ellis: preppy, sophisticated, and functional. This brand has progressed far beyond a typical menswear line to achieve an iconic status that speaks to all age groups. And this season’s collection furthered the Perry Ellis image as one of an all American successful male who likes to lounge around in fabulous ready-to-wear threads.

For Fall of 2008, Ellis’s line featured subtle tones of mossy olive, plum, and tan that were toughened-up by statement making hardware. The clothing was layered in wool, cashmere and cotton. Special attention was given to the accessories that gave versatility to the looks. Glossy looking rain boots, messenger bags and scarves showed us a Perry Ellis that is a lifestyle brand.

Creative director John Crocco created a truly wearable and grounded line. It was as if everything slowed down for a moment, and a snapshot of classic America captured the audience.
