Ricardo Seco presented his collection for the Spring/Summer 2014 season, which was entitled “Power.” The inspiration for this collection was the transformation of Shanghai becoming the NYC of Asia. So really, his collection draws inspiration from both cities, Shanghai & NYC. The collection, “Power”, is set to personify both the NY and Shanghai man, who leads a “sophisticated urban lifestyle that make the chaos of city life powerless.” The collection entailed a color palette of a gray scale that was also infused with royal blue and fierce golden prints. Colors and inspiration aside, it was the silhouettes that really caught my attention.
This collection worked with a lot of classic menswear silhouettes, but I enjoyed the modern take and twist that Seco incorporated into his designs. Such examples being a slim-fitted mens blazer with leather trim details, sleeveless white collared button-ups with a slim fit as well, and sleeveless varsity jackets. What was really great was that in the midst of a menswear collection with male models there was also a female model who wore his pieces and walked the runway. It was nice to see that some of the pieces would carry a unisex vibe.
