Designer Ricardo Seco

Never shying away from making a statement, Ricardo Seco showed on Day one of New York Fashion Week Men’s.  Seco presented his collection, Vision, at Flying Solo Store where you can find his current collection.

His “Vision” collection for Spring/Summer 2019 reflects back to the 1968 when Mexico hosted the Summer Olympics. Seco reflects on how Mexico brought together a diverse team to showcase the best parts of the country highlighting both traditional and modern Mexico. The 1968 Olympics also had a historical moment when  African-American athletes Tommie Smith and John Carlos during their medal ceremony raised a black-gloved fist during the playing of the National Anthem.

Combining these elements, celebrating Mexican pride and Black Power, Ricardo Seco  showed a collection meant to empower. He transformed some of those old symbols with original prints to promote what he calls the street Olympics and the lifestyle of today.

The repetition of stripes and optical illusion are the cohesion that combines the collection together. The colors help symbolize Black Power showcasing the power of the community which filters in many sectors in the world today: .art, culture, politics, music and fashion. In addition his DACA power, as seen in the socks, is a symbol to promote peace.

The collection is composed of street, sport and urban silhouettes that even though send a message also contain some very wearable pieces. Highlights include the leather jackets which were must have pieces. Ricardo Seco’s pieces are for the positive and sophisticated man, who is stylish and is empowered by his awareness of being in this world in a responsible way.
