Designer Romeo Hunte showcased his first Men’s Ready- to- Wear collection at PHD, Dream Downtown Hotel as part o New York Fashion Week Men’s. The Spring 19 collection was inspired by the Brooklyn streetwear style, that is to the Romeo Hunte collection. This Spring, Romeo was inspired by luxe streetwear meets swimwear, made for the everyday man who wants a classic outerwear piece with a luxurious vibe and twist.
The modern yet classic silhouettes, which are the designer’s true aesthetic were matched with the Brooklyn street style inspired silhouettes and swimwear. Romeo Hunte focused on bringing out the defiant look in his garments by incorporating oversized coats on his models. The designer focused on impactful functional Neoprene wetsuits paired with his signature powerful outerwear that ruled the runway.
Hunte’s fantasy was to add two juxtaposing elements together- Swimwear pieces and Fur to create innovative garments. The collection consisted of light overcoats, mix media jackets and wetsuits. This collection personified the strong nature of water and fur through powerful and impeccable creations. Pops of primary colors- blue, red and yellow were seen in luxe mix media fabrics including mink fur, denim, camouflage, cotton and French terry and the reinvention of the designer’s signature pieces. The models walked down the runway, featuring an array of collaborations including Swarovski, Look Mate London Socks, Kopenhagen Fur, and Teva.
