Mochachino: Savvy Men´s Collection
Mochachino: Savvy Resort Collection 2012-13
First let me say a sincere thanks for taking the time to view my work! Many of you have been unwavering family, clients, friends & supporters of my life´s work and personal creative direction. I am happy and blessed to be in such great company!
When I started this project It was less about me designing a collection and more about me wanting to capture it thru motion/film to see the design beyond the runway. What started out a simple thought, concluded in a capsule collection that I was overjoyed in creating.
That was only part of the magic!
Enter athlete/model, Nikolas Guevara, who like the many faces before him gave the designs dimension & personality. What should have been two days of experimenting, ended up being a month of location scouting, film scheduling/shooting, designing, fittings, photo shoots, editing and now the launch! ……I have to tell you if I had to, I´d do it all over again!!! It was an awesome adventure.
As I designed this collection I designed it around Nikolas who, thru the course of this adventure, adapted to every look I created! Almost shapeshifting into a different facet of a stylish, worldly guy!
So I aptly titled this collection, "Savvy". Inspired by the man who still sees the world (with a keen eye for taste) as a landscape of new opportunities. An explorer of various customs and new ideas, yet perceptive in old world values.
This capsule collection of 10 looks kicks off the countdown to our upcoming NYC Holiday Showing!
