[NEW YORK CITY.] If it weren’t for the CFDA-Vogue Fashion Fund endorsing Rio Uribe’s creative rumination at Gypsy Sport then I most likely wouldn’t have even known about him – which is why the CVFF is such a pivotal role for new designers to amplify their business. Throughout the presentation Uribe found his main artistry in the variation of skin types and honed in on expressing his love for different races. Not that his clothing line has no specific gender isn’t enough – Uribe is now knocking down the barriers in an industry that has a scandalous low representation of models of colour. Thankfully we have a new underdog that’s here to revamp our closets and morals.
In this collection, Uribe has resurrected the idea of the 90’s tracksuit and has perfected it by adding fur. Also, he taught that it’s okay to have multiple colour-blocks instead of a solid one-colour tracksuit. Additionally, when it comes to sleeves in autumn – either go sleeveless or have way too much that the sleeves hang past your finger tips because street-style is the way of the land. The use of sky blue was unexpected when skin tones were the main subject and it isn’t the most popular colour for fall. Yet, no other colour would have gone perfectly with the different brown hues. With womenswear in a few weeks I’m curious to see what will be showcased.
