During a preview in his Gramercy Park design studio, NarcisoRodriguez cited a fall trip to São Paolo, Brazil, that coincided withthe city’s Art Biennial as his main inspiration, particularly thegraphic work of the late Brazilian artist Lygia Clark. “I was takingpictures and we put them all up,” Rodriguez said. “We started to hone inon the most inspiring things.”


He channeled those things into his own codes — “always sports,action, movement,” he said — for a lineup, which, while lacking some ofthe beauty and sensuality that made Rodriguez’s terrific spring somemorable, still evolved some of the same concepts, like the collagingof fabrics and surface embellishments, often with striking results.
