Drawing inspiration from the complex yet beautifully simple works by Japanese architect Tadao Ando, the collection played with depth and visibility through the use of color — block intarsias, embroidered eyelets, and trompe l’oeil details. Key materials included supple suedes, various linen and coated blends, as well as knitted chenille. Standout pieces — such as the Oversized A‐Line Coat and Architect Car Coat — truly showcased the attention to detail that is signature to the current offering.

Colors that appeared throughout the collection — blacks, beiges, grays, whites and olives — were tonal, organic, and muted, reflecting the natural world that surrounds the structures of Ando’s creations, as well as the Deveaux world. Loose, fluid, and in some cases, oversized silhouettes drove the direction for the season, with specialty textures and fabric blends adding interest upon a closer look.
The fourth NYFW: Men’s presentation invited guests further into the universe of Deveaux. With models moving effortlessly throughout the cavernous space within EN Japanese Brasserie, the high ceilings and dramatic, oversized windows allowed for sumptuous natural light to play on the muted colors and shapes.
“It was an incredible experience to study the works of Tadao Ando and to draw parallels between the worlds he has created with those that we are building with Deveaux,” says Andrea Tsao, Head Designer of Deveaux. “Every decision he makes is calculated and meticulous, and we did our best to honor his dedication to artistry with every detail — from the introduction of our women’s collection and our venue choice, to the finishings on every garments.”
