As a man who enjoys life with a consciousness of nature and the only Mexican designer being featured during NYFWM, Ricardo Seco combines the sacredness of Holbox, the island situated off the northeast coast of the Yucatan peninsula, with New York City lifestyle. Known for being a sanctuary of endangered species like the Carey Turtle, tern, American flamingo and sea cow, the island inspires Holbox, Seco’s ode to NYC.
“This city’s culture shapes our understanding of our nature and the future”, stated Ricardo. “Take a look at what Mother Nature has given us. Without nature, there is no us; there is no LIFE.” Using unique colors and textures to convey his message Seco states, “LIFE is about defining your own future, while preserving the treasures of the past.
“Sarape Time” collection focuses on contemporary Mexico, highlighting country’s bold and unique culture. Ricardo stated, “We live in a timeless world filled with color. We know who we are – we are our past and we are our present. We create our future based on traditions and heritage, which makes our time here beautiful. Now is the time to enjoy sarape and other street styles of the world.”
The silhouette-style presentation will be 70-percent black with touches of off-white and fluorescent colors. The most important look is one of Ricardo’s own designs using sarape. While making this piece, his goal was to showcase a garment that would speak volumes about Mexico’s culture. “I can see the garment in the most esteemed and influential winter destinations.
