New York has welcomed this week all the seasonal novelties for spring/summer 2016 spread out across the four industry-relevant tradeshows Liberty, MRket, Man and Project. Thus, we've packed all trend- and fashion highlights in case you missed them out.

Athleisure and sporty looks, destroyed denim and generally clean styles from upscale contemporary brands were the big stories at Liberty, which returned to Pier 94 on the Hudson River for a three-day run this week. The show had about 215 exhibitors, which ranged from designers David Hart, Carlos Campos and Nigel Cabourn to bigger, more commercial lines such as Ben Sherman, Original Penguin, Superdry and WeSC. Although traffic was quiet when we visited on the final day, visitors and show representatives alike deemed the event successful.  The sections Freedom Hall (curated by The Brooklyn Circus’ Ouigi Theodore) and The Drugstore (grooming products) returned while a new floor exhibition highlighted the designers who showed at Men’s Day at the new New York Fashion Week: Men’s the week before.

This week’s MRket/Vanguards Gallery show was held in New York from Sunday to Tuesday at the Javits Center. As usual, it featured rather traditional menswear but there were still plenty of new trends and brands to be discovered on the show floor. In the Modern Prep section, nearly every brand featured printed shorts in one form or another, for example. Newcomers Ona and Blankenship Dry Goods respectively made great entrances with smart camera-inspired bags and bottoms with pocket linings printed with the American flag. And Brooklyn-based accessories brand Camp Hero impressed with its 1970s-style beaded belts, which can be customized for retailers.

The latest edition of Man, held Monday through Wednesday at Industria Studios in Greenwich Village, was arguably the best Man New York show yet. Still small and intimate with just 46 brands, Man wowed this season with a great international list of labels, who showed some really beautiful offerings for spring 2016. There was lots of denim in the mix thanks to US brands 8.15 August Fifteenth, Linder and Earnest Sewn and offshore labels such as Won Hundred (Denmark), Tender (UK) and Whyred and Our Legacy (Sweden). The latter showed a white denim jacket printed with colorful palm trees and another solid one in a Miami Vice-like orange/salmon. Textiles with nubby textures (including linen blends) and interesting knits were another key trend and appeared on tops by Our Legacy, Earnest Sewn, DDugoff and Hope, among others. There were also sporty/athletic touches such as wide stripes at DDugoff and Won Hundred. Another Swedish brand, Uniforms for the Dedicated, also had athletic nods and used traditional Swedish kurbits prints in its shorts and tops.

The latest New York edition of Project ran at the Javits Center from Sunday to Tuesday. The go-to destination for men’s denim, Project included big jeans names such as 7 for All Mankind, AG, Hudson and J Brand. Top fashion trends spotted there included athletic-inspired shorts, unusual knits, pastel color palettes and light-wash jeans. New brand One Bxwd offered a fantastic light-wash pair in a retro carpenter silhouette while an even younger label, UDP (Used Denim Products) made a very impressive debut at the show.
