Mexican designer Ricardo Seco showed his Spring 2017 Menswear Collection at the Hotel Americano in Chelsea next to the roof top pool. It was the perfect setting for Ricardo Seco’s cool mix of athletic wear, oversized and relaxed garments, and bomber jackets.
But this season, Ricardo Seco wanted his collection to also have a theme of social responsibility. Ricardo Seco named this collection LIFE and took his inspiration from Holbox, an island that lies northeast of the Yucatan peninsula. The island is the home of a lot of endangered species including the American Flamingo and the Carey Turtle.
Ricardo Seco created this collection to bring attention to the environmental issues that threaten our planet and its rare species. The inspiration led to a collection infused with bright bold colors, such as a flamingo pink, mixed with black and earthier sand.
Ricardo Seco Spring 2017 gives us once again a solid collection of menswear that will be perfect for this coming summer and at the same time make us think about Global Warming and its effect on all of us.
