Spring 2019

For designer Ricardo Seco Spring 2019 started 50 years ago at the Mexico City Olympics. Seco drew his inspiration from the history making Olympic games in a street wise collection re-imagining it’s iconography for 2019. The designer drew reference from the iconic Olympic rings by creating a psychedelic ring print worked into parkas, bombers and shirting and pants. Seco undoubtedly fast forwarded to 2019 showcasing a playful multi-colored home screen print with app like icons for the urban dweller. Continued this season is the designer’s stance on the anti-immirgration legislations being pushed by the current presidential administration. With red, white, and green DACA emblazoned socks and a tee stating: “Immigrants: Empowering the World.” The collection was a continued celebration of Mexican heritage and culture through Seco’s contemporary take on men’s fashion.

Spring/Summer 2018

Last week Mexican designer Ricardo Seco showed his Spring/Summer 2018 collection during New York Fashion Week.  Seco delivered a selection of hoodies and outerwear in bold fluorescents not for the color shy.  With a clever play on words the designer continued his message of Mexican pride with a tee reading Mexseco.  The collection was also a nod to the psychedelic sixties with kaleidoscope print separates and mushroom prints.  Reminiscent of the black lit velvet images one might find in a mid-western basement den, mushrooms found their way onto hoodies and leopard print bombers, making the biggest statement of the collection.

#NYFWM: Carlos Campos and Ricardo Seco

Tuesday afternoon was packed full of shows but Carlos Campos and Ricardo Seco stood out amongst the fashion pack. Carlos showed a beautiful collection true to his modern-classic aesthetic in a spectrum of desert safari colors with military accents. Ricardo's collection was filled with South American glam on the rooftop of the Hotel Americano with model Justin Gossman. Sequins, ponchos and pink flamingos were sending the poolside crowd into a heated excitement under the afternoon sun. Reviews to follow.
