Paint is the new destroyed which was the new sandblasted. The second day of New York Fashion Week: Men’s saw more DIY and expensive DIY-looking pieces take to the streets of Manhattan. The mentality seems to be, if you can wear it, you can paint it and then wear it. From Basquiat denim jackets to brushed and splattered canvas bags, there truly is nothing that can’t be made to look hip, grungy, and totally New York with a little (or a big!) touch of paint. That, or you can dress like an actual painter. You’ll see what we mean in the street style gallery below.
