Malan Breton® HOMME SS/16

Malan Breton presented his Spring/Summer 2016 Menswear Collection on Tuesday, July 14, at NYFW - Men's.

Malan's collection included sportswear, swimwear, suiting, and underwear.  

The designs are modern, sleek, and made in comfort fibers like silk, cotton, and bamboo. 

Exploring the techniques of wetsuit design, Breton incorporates fusing elements, and finds inspiration in the Batik techniques, and tradition of the Hakka blue shirts of his homeland, Taiwan. 

Malan Breton® HOMME introduced eyewear, cufflinks, and skateboards this season. 

Made of the highest quality elements; brushed metals, Swarovski crystals, and enamels that accentuate his philosophy of high style, but continue in the path of total comfort.

Happy 10th Anniversary BPR!

This is something of a momentous day for BPR. Ten years ago today, our dear friend and founder Laura Kluvo logged onto Blogger and created a itty bitty website devoted to a show hardly anyone had heard of but one that she was incredibly passionate about. It was partway between Seasons 1 and 2 at a time when there was very little information available about specific shows, let alone an obscure competition reality program on Bravo. 

Her first post was titled "I Miss Project Runway". She quickly struck a chord with a rabid fanbase as Project Runway soared in popularity through Season 2. She recruited Tbone and Scarlett to help out and less than 10 months after that simple opening post, we were meeting Tim Gunn. It's been a heck of a ride.

Congratulations Laura on a decade of blogging and Happy Anniversary BPR!
