Ricardo Seco has long been driven by his cultural ties, but his latest collection couldn’t be more timely.
As America grapples with Donald Trump’s xenophobic administration, the self-taught designer made a bold fashion statement with his “Juntos/Together” collection at New York Men’s Fashion Week.
Reimagining the Mexican flag with messages like “Proud Immigrant” and “Together We Are A Force” etched in all caps, the “Yo Soy México” leader drowns out the president’s ongoing talk, and subsequent executive order, on a U.S.-Mexico border wall with a much-needed call for unity.
Now, this is what peaceful protest through fashion looks like. Check out more of Ricardo Seco’s work here.
