Prep School.

You may have seen K. Cooper Ray’s Social Primer reversible bow ties at Brooks Brothers, and he recently came out with his first solo collection. I caught up with the designer before he headed off to New York Fashion Week.

“You see me out dressed, and half the time some might consider me a clown,” Ray says. “I really push the limits of go-to-hell prep. My reasoning for doing that, other than I’m just an eccentric kook, is that I feel like if I’m dressed really eccentrically, I feel like the other guys out there will see me and think, OK, I can go another step further. At least no one’s going to look at me, they’re looking at him.”
