A friend who attended the Ricardo Seco men's show with me dubbed it "Desert Raver," an apt name for this vibrant and versatile gender neutral collection. With a nod to the designer's Mexican heritage, a dose of downtown cool, and a bit of humor thrown in the mix, Seco's collection scored big with the crowd. Most fun? Seco's sweaters with their well-worked color combinations and metallic tinge, and his serapes with fur collar and trim. Leather jackets rounded out the collection, nothing as bold as the serapes but well made and highly covetable.
The designer at his show, and the blessing of a Bill Cunningham appearance.
