Between the long ponytails, phone snatching, subway bucket drummers, and everything else, one might have a hard time trying to gather words for the Gypsy Sport collection. Well it’s easy for me, the show was fun and humbling!
The show started out with Rio Uribe, creative director of Gypsy Sport, almost scolding humanity for the way we treat the homeless and less fortunate. But he built us back up by saying he believes humans actually do, by nature, want the best for each other and would like to peacefully co-exist.
The inspiration for this season’s clothing collection comes from the homeless. Not the first time this concept has been used, but it was certainly the most interesting way I’ve seen it presented.
Vogue says, “He has always had an unconventional approach to casting, and this time recruited most of his models from the many political rallies he has joined in the last few months, including the Women’s March in Los Angeles and protests against the Muslim ban in New York. Young people strode down the runway past Gypsy Sport logoed tents in looks that cobbled together a hodgepodge of references, many of which touched on the resilience of displaced people.”
I hope I get to go to the next electrifying collection Gypsy Sport presents!
