Rio Uribe, the man behind the 2015 CFDA Fashion Fund winning brand Gypsy Sport, brought questions of race and gender to the forefront with his newest menswear collection. By taking inspiration from the skin tones of himself, his friends, and Gypsy Sport team members, Uribe questioned the role of race in an artistic way. The brown hues were both reminders of race and the 1970s groove seen throughout the line. Highlights included a patchwork shearling coat, striped corduroy sets, bell bottomed pants, and a baby blue tracksuit. Along with the ’70s were Western influences channeled through lengthy cowboy button ups, floppy hats, and wide collars.
Another exciting aspect of Uribe’s line? It’s gender fluidity. The uni-sex line will be shown on female models in just a few days at New York Fashion Week, proving that his talent spans all genders.
