MEXICAN DESIGNER RICARDO SECO PROJECTS
IMMIGRANT PRIDE ON FALL/WINTER 2017 COLLECTION –
JUNTOS/TOGETHER –DURING NYFWM OPENING NIGHT
The presentation explored the Transformative Journey of Migration and expressed
Seco’s desire to reject “those invisible walls that exclude and separate.”
More than 300 guests enjoyed the Juntos/Together collection, which according to
Seco, “is the symbology and the colors that represent Mexico and the United States,
two countries that are siblings and rivals but because of their proximity, need to
create a cooperative relationship, especially in times where certainties are
questioned.” We love his POV.
Mexican and American models sported Seco’s vibrant and colorful garments with
printed statements like ‘Proud Immigrant’ and ‘Tear Down this Wall Make America
Juntos/Together is a compilation that mixes sport, casual and garment cuts, and thus, it adapts to contemporary men and women. It consists of different textures such as leather, suede, satin, cashmere, cotton and silk. While black is obviously claimed by New York as its official sportswear color, other primary colors in the collection represent the two inspiration countries: Mexico and the United States. The collection is designed to be easy to wear and work with our existing wardrobe.
