DYNE | New York Fashion Week: Men’s
Christopher Bevans, Creative Director and Designer made a collection for the street champion by taking fabric, fit, and function to a completely new level.
“It’s really everything about my love of sport, technology and fabrics coming all together in one brand,” says Bevans. “I wanted to make clothes that are functional but still very tailored and stylish — my line is about performance but always with lifestyle in mind.” Rooted in tailoring, DYNE is an evolving brand with a future-focus, anticipating what’s to come in our modern world while pushing the limits of versatility and exceeding the expectations of males on-the-go.

Bevans drew inspiration from the cross-functional aspects of city, downtown active lifestyle and the multi-disciplinary activities of living in a municipality. DYNE is constantly exploring dynamic terrains, from the moment they wake up, the stir of their lives from dealing with the melting pot and over population, to the amount of sensory overload that surrounds their day to day. DYNE’s latest offerings are made up of high-end, smart performance materials with antimicrobial and wicking properties, waterproof fibers, reflectivity, and other body regulating technologies.

The assortment includes a tailored street aesthetic that incorporates the advanced textile technology – communication chips embedded into garments that communicate data to the wearer on everything from fabric specs to playlists. Bevans reconfigured active staples and introduced brighter hues like pops of fuchsia, teal, and chartreuse mixed with neutrals. Flipping perspectives and reversing traditional methods to push the realms of possibility in activewear, he used an inverted zipper on a hooded anorak, added sheer quilting details on a polka dot bomber and added subtle motocross seaming on a pair of joggers. Offering up an assortment of updated classics that he says “feels more athletic in a very tailored aesthetic,” the collection includes a jumpsuit that is reminiscent of a mechanics’ suit, pullovers in stretch performance woven that zips from the bottom up, packable jacket, and pisano tech pant.
For Spring/Summer 2018 DYNE teamed up with GREATS, a Brooklyn-born footwear brand offering tastefully designed sneakers. “The GREATS collaboration happened organically. Ryan and I have been partnering on other brand projects in the past. I am fan because GREATS provides quality comfort trainers made in Italy for a really good price. DYNE stands for quality and so does GREATS so it just made sense,” Bevans said.

The designers revealed the ‘Pronto’ style in multiple colors. Made in Civitanova, Italy – known as “shoe valley” – where each shoe is built to the utmost standards. It easily laps the competition with a luxurious full-leather lining, a hand cut leather stabilizer on the heel, 3M accents on the toe, and hits of top-notch leather and suede on the upper, with just enough mesh for breathability.
With the support of Cadillac and the CFDA, DYNE was chosen to be a part of the Cadillac’s fifth season as a sponsor of New York Fashion Week: Men’s continuing its partnership with the CFDA.
DYNE, from Greek, δύναμις, dynamis, meaning power, force.
