Men’s Spring Summer 2018
This season destacarse. roams the local streets of East Los Angeles to draw inspiration from the history of Mexican American youth, the complex Chicano lifestyle, the beauty of street culture, and community. With skill, the collection balances modern and traditional roots of the Zoot Suit Riots. The collection presents baggy pleated high waisted trousers inspired by “Zoot Suiters”. Pieces like oversized knit shirts and luxurious gaberdine button up shirts are printed with poetry quotes, written inspired by the community and originally taken from notebooks of the designer himself. Cultural details, like extinguished matches, cigarettes, and Mexican currency is displayed behind clear plastic sewn onto selected garments such as bomber jackets made of lightweight wools and the new “Slit Jackets”. Pieces are also hand embellished with buttons that create images of elotes, Nopales, and cigarettes. Remember to leave a scar when wearing destacarse.
