Last Tuesday, fashion designer Annie Campbell showcased her Exley Fall Winter 2017 menswear collection with a fashion presentation at the Soho House in New York City. Five models posed and mingled in the label's outerwear pieces while guests snapped photos, wrote down notes, and admired the looks on the men and on racks. The jackets, vests and raincoats are very modern, wearable, cool and attractive. They also feature several technical innovations.




The one and half year old brand is based in New Bedford, Massachusetts. Ms. Campbell, found inspiration for this season’s collection in the varying conditions of life in New England: “From the wet cement on city streets to the wonderland of snow banks of melting slush with the path tracks from people before you, this collection is a reflection of meaningful perceptions found throughout New England’s city and coast life.” A new ‘Quilted Vest Liner’ with wool knit collar and functional front patch pockets is introduced. It looks really versatile and is perfect for layering.
