Ladies Who Lunch: Ricardo Seco Fall 2014!

Showing his Fall 2014 menswear in an historic Lower East Side Gothic revival synagogue, Mexican designer Ricardo Seco merged the past with the present in a sophisticated and chic collection he entitled "FOREVER".

Taking his inspiration from Jackie and John-John Kennedy in the 1960’s, Ricardo Seco seems to have channeled the spirit and style of that era into a collection that is modern and relevant to fashion right now.

Ricardo Seco worked with a base palette of greys and blacks accented by pastels and a few interesting prints.  Emphasizing his inspiration, Ricardo Seco also presented graphic T-shirts with the image of Jackie Kennedy in her signature sunglasses.

Demonstrating an original style and flair, Ricardo Seco Fall 2014 is a collection that you will want to check out and add to your wardrobe!

Ladies Who Lunch: Nicholas K Fall 2014!

When I think of my fave clothing companies, I am surprised to include Nicholas K to that list.  Not because it isn’t a great line, but because although it is a departure from my typical style, it works for me and draws me in.

Nicholas K has an urban nomadic warrior feel to it and the pieces, whether separately or layered, have a stylish sense that is the epitome of modern day dressing.

For Nicholas K Fall 2014, the brother-sister team of Nicholas & Christopher Kunz took their inspiration from French photographer Jean Gaumy and his book Men at Sea, which captures the daily life of commercial fishermen.

The inspiration provided the designer’s with a palette to create a Nicholas K Fall 2014 Collection that is perfect for this current season!
