For a second season, ENK International will present six runway men’s shows produced by IMG Fashion during the Blue and Collective trade shows at Pier 92 in New York. “We consider it our responsibility to showcase the future leaders of our industry,” explained Elyse Kroll, chairman of ENK International, of the two-day event, which is scheduled to run July 21-22 and concurrently with Project New York and Capsule.

Brands participating this season include Charles G. Bailey, Conference of Birds, Nicholas K, Obakki, Buckler and Orthodox. Yoko Devereaux will show offsite this season.

Two underground shows, meanwhile, are adding a much needed underground twist to men’s market week. Lat40N will feature brands Bizarre, Fullcount, Hifumiya, Left Field, Leny Lay Lack, Masterpiece, Satoru Tanaka, Yoshiyuki and Live & Kring by Creative Ring. In SoHo, MVMT.NYC, a new heritage streetwear show produced by the design agency 503Lab, is expected to showcase fresh brands such as Square 1, Expansion, Mothergreen, RKives, Get Free, Love Lost and Wheatbread Life.
