On his second season as creative director of Perry Ellis
, Michael Maccari defines the firm with a forward, modern spin. Maccari seems to be a frenetic fan of contemporary art (just a quick look through his personal Instagram page, and you'll notice this fact immediately) and that was visible in the way jacquards or the lining of coats featured what looks like zoomed-in versions of Jackson Pollock's paintings. And although his color palette throughout wasn't as bright as Pollocks, he managed to mix the essentials colors of the season, with the ones that the late Perry Ellis never forgot to include on his early 80's collections. In there you saw the eternal palette of browns and tans, or the plaids that Perry was very much a fan of. Overall, this collection will bring new retailers and new fans into the loop - stay tuned.
