When it comes to blurring the lines of high fashion and everyday wear, Ricardo Seco has the right concept. During New York’s Fashion Week, I had the privilege of attending the Fall/Winter 2014 showing of Ricardo Seco’s “Forever” Menswear Collection held at the beautiful Angel Orensanz Foundation. It was quite a treat. The antique architecture of the venue juxtaposed with purple lighting peeking through the decorated glass doors, perfectly complimented the edgy yet sophisticated show that commenced.

As the nostalgic but somehow current house music blared, male models in combinations of retro punk-rock leather jackets and trousers, along with bright pastel sweaters, Bermuda shorts and pea coats strutted their stuff down the runway. These may sound like odd pairings but they completely worked! With a theme focusing on the Kennedy era of the 60’s, it all makes sense as Seco explains how he turned Jackie O’s famous A-line silhouette in to a masculine, urban chic style.

Cleverly incorporating Jackie’s favorite pastels with wintery shades of gray, blue and of course black, this line is New York City ready. Also noting the varied textures and fabrics such as cashmere, suede, wool, and cotton, “Forever” was truly designed for the modern man. Light flair with an edge.
