Bold, colourful and print oriented with a formal yet sporty aesthetic, combination of my two favourite things. This is Paulo Succar‘s S/S 2014 collection, entitled “The Siqueiros Collection”.
The collection’s prints are inspired by the Mexican artist David Alfaro Siqueiros, who often used his works as a political tool. Characteristics of his bold and graphical style are seen very much in Paulo’s interpretations of reflected and mirrored prints.
The collection evokes a formal and urban sensibility. Its very laid back, something you could chill and kick about in, with its shorts, mesh mixed tees and snap backs, but then with the mix of tailored pieces bring that formal element. Its very confident and is definitely one of my favourite collections for the upcoming seasons.
