Key Takeaways: Tomer’s latest collection continues his subdued look at the world of men’s tailored fashion. Suitable for the sleek and sexy rock n’ roller, his designs are modestly clean, yet mysteriously dark.
Color Palette: An overcast of monochromatic grays, blacks, blues and beiges. Some of the colors contain a hint of iridescence, but it’s nothing like those campy disco shirts.
Silhouettes: His tops cling to the male form in the right places, while his pants range from the relaxed to the slim fit, which shows great diversity and function in his collection. From head to toe, the color, along with the cuts, give all of his pieces a strong statement on the male form.
Accessories Report: Light as air scarves may not exactly keep you warm, but they sure as hell look good hanging around the necks. They add just the right amount of zest to the collection’s palette. Tomer also proves that chain necklaces hang more confidently in front of a solid, dark color. For another great addition of texture, the leather gloves give more of a touch of metro flair, rather than an O.J. Simpson feel.
What’s Wearable: Without a doubt, vests have the potential to be a popular trend this fall and beyond. Tomer matches them up with same-color tops and it adds a reasonable “umph” to what can be considered a bland color palette. His peasant-like tops exude a certain amount of femininity that doesn’t compromise a man’s self-consciousness, while his tailored mid and full length coats are classically modern. As for the bottoms, the choice of fabrics he uses for the pants is very versatile. What may look like denim is actually a nice pair of slacks—they can be casual or formal.
What’s Not Wearable: You can never really go wrong with basic blacks and grays, which makes all of his clothing appealing to the body. However, it can become more than a little repetitive.
