“It isn’t summer without color,” said Ricardo Seco, a New York City-based designer who’s determined to bring the vibrancy of his home country, Mexico, to urban life. His spring collection titled “Luck,” did just that.
Seco used the Mexican card game “La Loteria” as the starting point for the offering, which was created around four cards from the game: the heart, the mermaid, the Scorpio and the palm leaf. These symbols showed up on matching bomber jackets and board shorts, blazers and graphic T-shirts. The hard edge of a leather moto vest was softened with a palm print embroidered on the back.
Seco, who has shown eight collections in New York City, said he wanted to create a collection that appealed to musical festivalgoers attempting to stand out in the crowd — and he achieved exactly that.
