If there’s one thing that we can always count on Vaquera for, it’s that their collection will make a statement. This season, the design collective helmed by David Moses, Patric DiCaprio, Bryn Taubensee, and Claire Sully, took inspiration from the Midwest—specifically the youth in those rural towns with dreams of moving to the big city and the symbols of that other life that they cling to.
Classic American motifs, from flags and crisp white shirts to gingham checks, were reimagined in oversized silhouettes and deconstructed garments. Breakfast at Tiffany’s and the iconic jewelry store were referenced quite literally, with one of their signature bags fashioned into a mini-dress. While you probably won’t see that look walking down the street everyday, their point was definitely made.
The designers were eager to point out their sincere love for the naiveté that those young dreamers possess. We’ve all got to have something to keep those dreams going.
