Ricardo Seco Men’s Fall/Winter 2016 New York Fashion Week FW16 NYFW

Ricardo Seco Men’s Fall/Winter 2016 New York Fashion Week collection was provokative, as all art should be; social commentary on Donald Trump’s racist bigotry and ridiculous ideas we’ve seen fail in Bush’s terms…perhaps he was too busy with The Apprentice to remember the wall wasn’t a viable option and isn’t informed enough on American History to recall the Japanese concentration camps (in terms of his views on Muslims).

Seco’s graphic t-shirts made the bold statements of invoking the pride of Mexican heritage against the inhumane backdrop of extreme-republican hatred and Trump-induced acts of hate-crimes.  “I’m Mexico, Who is Trump?” read one graphic t-shirt; another depicted a Speedy Gonzales character.

The Ricardo Seco FW16 NYFW collection weaved Mexican textiles and themes throughout, using it on jackets, capes, and collars.  The outspoken brand presented a leather short-sleeved shirt and pink fur collared leather jacket, loads of separates, including the dreaded flood length pants, as well as some horrid uses of fur.
