A beautiful bevy of male models marched down the runway in a style that was reminiscent of military influence in Cabbeen’s Fall 2007 collection. The Chinese designer, whose show on Saturday was his American debut, featured a palette of white, gray and black with quirky accents reminiscent of his native country, such as cherry blossom embroidery on a down jacket. While not particularly thrilling, the collection was eminently wearable with clean cut jeans and button downs, livened up by splashes of deep primary colors.

Cabbeen’s models sported a boyish bedhead look with tousled spikes that complemented the simplicity of the line. Head stylist Giovanni Giuntoli wanted to create a look that complimented the individual look of each model. He explained, “Cabbeen’s clothes are casual and wearable, so I wanted to duplicate that look with the guys. No pretty, no grunge – I wanted to just have them go out as themselves, as they would look on a night out.” Giuntoli enhanced the natural style of each model’s hair by using a light pomade and Grit Wax Starch Infused Wax from Redken’s new Urban Experiment line. He also used a light foundation and concealer from Stila to cover undereye circles and prevent shine under the bright stage lights.

The overall look was understated and quasi-grunge. Which shows you how unique each designer perceives Fall 2007 to be.
