New York, New York – July 16, 2015,
Mexican designer, Ricardo Seco, presented his Spring/Summer 2016 collection, “Luck“ at the Skylight Clarkson Square as part of New York Fashion Week Men’s on Thursday, July 16th.
about the collection:
The “Luck” Collection was inspired by “A man that knows how to play the game of life, who trusts in who he is and where he is going, without forgetting where he comes from. He enjoys all and knows his luck and essence. He knows how to share and take advantage of his opportunities.” Ricardo combined the richness of Mexican culture with its new contemporary sophistication.
The collection reflected Mexican pop culture in a level of sophistication that is current in this metropolitan city. The game “La Loteria” was invented by the Spanish during the colonization of Mexico. The purpose of this game was to teach the indigenous to speak their language. This game has remained inlaid in the culture. The collection was inspired by the roots of Mexican culture and seeks to bring together both tradition and cutting edge design. There isn’t a Mexican that hasn’t played the game.
Ricardo chose four cards that represented the summer spirit, which he used in his prints. The palm projected the feeling of freedom and nature, the heart represented the feelings of loyalty and passion, the scorpion, for its audacity and the mermaid, for its mysticism, luck dreams, and imagination. This effortless collection was for the urban sophisticated man who dares to bring color and pattern to his wardrobe. The combination of various fabrics such as leather, cotton, neoprene and printed fabric comprised of black, white, and a pop of color blended together to create the perfect wardrobe for Spring/Summer.
