The New York chapter is Everywhere at the End of Time. This chapter  takes us to the current times in the world now and brings about empowerment. The empowerment of women and those being  poorly treated. The entire show from the dancers, to the opening model, Nykhor Paul bring the story to life.

The runway included celebrities models: Kiera Chaplin (Charlie Chaplin’s granddaughter), Frankie Grande, Consuelo Vanderbilt Costin,  Dylan Grieco, Mason Grammer, and Janine Tugonon. Each is a part of the  weaving of the story about acceptance and hope.

London’s show at Freemasons Hall continues the collections’ story. This chapter is living in the moment of fear and darkness. Taking the color away from you. The loss of color a strong presence on the runway. The opening fabric for this chapter looks similar to a second skin. The music for the runway is Sleepwalk by Santo & Johnny.

Los Angeles story chapter, the Seven Deadly Sins. This runway brings the story back to hope, light, and empowerment with the presence of color. The Phoenix in the triplet chapter story.

The collections’ stories are inspired by the 1930s, the loss of hope and death. The stories draw from Charlie Chaplin‘s 1930 films including City Lights and Modern Times. The collections present the story with perfection in fabrics, treatments, performances, and colors.

The fabrics are Asian inspired. The fabrics are organzas, silk Charmeuse, and recycled piettes. The piettes are created  from recycled cans. Breton uses a company in Twain that cuts, colors, and treats the metal.

Breton says, “I do my best to protect the environment with my designs.” This metallic dress moments and texture are extraordinary. Breton states, “the dress movement comes from the way I weighted and draped the dress. I am so grateful it turned out so well.”

The color in this chapter is green (earth and rebirth), gold (prosperity and richness), and deep blue (continuous flow of life). The floral prints bring a beauty and new beginning to the final chapter of the story.

Breton’s chapters stay true to his aesthetics elegance. The mens silhouettes are very on point. This collection Breton styled and designed himself. His stylist for several season, Montgomery Frazier The Image Guru, said, “we do not put anyone in anything that is ill fitting. If it is ill fitted they do not wear it. The textures and fabrics fit Breton’s catch line ‘wherever you go shine.’ The fabrics are rich, opulent, exquisite tailoring, and he is about the fashion. Being here with Breton is so glamorous at Style Fashion Week with the beautiful outdoor setting and jazz music.”

Breton develops his menswear after his own experience. He states, “when I was a ballet dancer in London and on Broadway every time I lifted my arm up when wearing a suit I would loose part of my sleeve. I knew I had to figure out how to cut a suit so I do not loose part of my sleeve. I trained at Turnbull And Asser, the suit makers for the Prince of Wales. He says, “I incorporate the English tradition I learned there with my own development for the men’s suits.”
