The Ricardo Seco fall 2014 collection took over the Angel Orensanz Foundation in New York City’s Lower East Side to offer a powerful spectacle with male models strutting up and down the runways of the church-like venue for New York Fashion Week.
Titled “Forever,” the collection is inspired by the timeless 60s era. Garments were splashed with images of Jackie O and little John-John’s silhouette as he saluted his father, JFK, one final goodbye. The color palette had me hungry for cotton candy as pastel pinks, blues, and purples took to the runway.
The Forever Collection featured a variety of different fabrics, including leather, wool, and tweed. The more feminine element of the Jackie O inspiration is evident throughout the assortment in the form of tied scarves, oversized glasses, and more gender-neutral coats. The New Balances were one of my favorite elements of the collection. The metallic details had me itching to run over to Finish Line to pick up a pair. In retrospect, I’d have to say this was my favorite show of the week. Another great piece of work from Ricardo Seco.
“This collection is something you won’t forget. It’s forever.” – Ricardo Seco
