Ricardo Seco New York Fashion Week Men's Spring Summer 2017:"LIFE"
New York – July 13th, 2016, Social Activism is ‘in’ this season, and this Fashion Week, Ricardo Seco raised awareness for endangered species on New York City’s runways. Seco’s LIFE collection was shown via presentation at Hotel Americano, 518 W 27th St, on July 12th at 5:30PM.
As a man who enjoys life with a consciousness of nature and the only Mexican designer being featured during NYFWM, Ricardo Seco combined the sacredness of Holbox, the island situated off the northeast coast of the Yucatan peninsula, with New York City lifestyle. Known for being a sanctuary of endangered species like the Carey Turtle, tern, American flamingo and sea cow, the island inspires Holbox, Seco’s ode to NYC. “This city’s culture shapes our understanding of our nature and the future”, stated Ricardo. “Take a look at what Mother Nature has given us. Without nature, there is no us; there is no LIFE.” Using unique colors and textures to convey his message Seco states, “LIFE is about defining your own future, while preserving the treasures of the past. This collection is meant to not only bring awareness to the island of Holbox and NYC, but to the importance of protecting our planet as a whole.” Featured colors and textures included: pastel pink, baby blue, lilac, flamingo feathers, print of whale shark skin, print of sand, grey and black. LIFE featured Spring/Summer 2017’s latest trends including oversized silhouettes, bomber jacket, bikers, boxing shorts, relaxed pants, athletic inspired shorts, and sweatshirts.
Seco describes the line as ‘street meets urban sophistication.’ Cumulatively, Ricardo has shown 10 seasons; his first being held on Feb. 16, 2012. In chronological order his entire collection includes: FLY, SHARE, ALIVE, POWER, FOREVER, DREAMS, REAL, LUCK, TIME and now for Spring/Summer 2017 - LIFE. In each collection, Ricardo combines the richness of Mexican culture with its new contemporary sophistication.
