“Blue Blood”

 

Former architects turned designers Jesus Ibarra and Bertholdo Espinoza have created their brand over a decade ago. Having presented their collections in Berlin, Germany as well as part of Latin Women’s Initiative in Houston Texas, Ibarra and Espinza now presented their Spring/Summer 2014 by drawing inspiration from such high voltage cities as New York, Florence, Milan and Turin. This season’s collection is brilliantly buoyed by a fabulous vibrant sherbert-esque colour palette and lush layers, creating an easy breezy silhouette.

RHAPSODY

 

Founded in 1999 by creative trio Sol Acuña, Josefina Helguera and Francisco de Narvaez, Rhapsody relishes in the eclectic, romantic and an unrivalled bohemian take on style. This season, Rhapsody gently embraces the Eastern vibe evidenced by gorgeous embroidery work and caftan-esque take on the maxi dress and of course, never-too-cool tunics. Their storyboard is also given a rock’n’roll edge by the presence of rocker tees acting as a staple to their overall fashionable presence. This brand has solid presence via boutiques in Argentina, Buenos Aires, Chile, Mexico, Venezuela, Uruguay, Colombia, Brazil and Panama.

BLACK by Mauricio Olvera and Leonardo Lozanne 

 

We featured this Mexican label last season so of course were thrilled when they continued to turn our heads this season with their latest collection.  Mauricio Olvera and Leonardo Lozanne presented their current Spring/Summer 2014 collection “Black” with an equal parts fervor and plenty of fashion. Their menswear line adds a sophisticated touch to the overall space with favorites including distressed leather, very cool moto-jackets, fab safari jackets, crisp coral button-down shirts and of course the always reliable khakhis.
