There may be no shortage of new traditional menswear lines these days in New York, but Commonwealth Utilities, the new men’s line by Anthony Keegan, a former designer at Versace, Armani and Donna Karan, and Richard Christiansen from the hip Chandelier Creative Design Agency, is commendable for its “champagne and oreos” aesthetic. Its debut collection attempts to revise staples in a gent’s wardrobe, from a sturdy khaki trench coat to a fitted db cropped wool blazer, dress trousers with five-pocket jean detailing and a shawl-collar puff overcoat. But as the deep V-neck on a biker jacket would suggest, this line is as much about a playful spirit as that rare brand of rugged sensuality.
