A calm breeze blew on the rooftop of Mova Lounge where male models started the show. The line included an array of colors, patterns and textiles making Andrew Nowell’s collection unique and fashionable for the men of today.
The eye-candy for the night included Mr. Nowell’s underwear collection ‘DaSoul’. According to his website:
DASOUL comes from strength, masculinity and sexy….inspired by the men in America’s Cultural Urban landscapes.
DASOUL colors outside the line, forging a NEW vocabulary in the men’s underwear market. We blend “the fresh, hip and soulful”…at the hip; by augmenting stylish and fashion-forward design with superior fabric choices, DASOUL creates an imaginative, yet classic, new perspective in the men’s underwear market. Our silhouettes are continually created and updated using premium fabrics with a man’s body and needs in mind.
The Dasoul collection included swimwear, boxer briefs, trunks and other sexy masculine items.
