Feeling Fearless: Gypsy Sport

It is without a doubt that the L.A native designer, Rio Uribe, has the weight of the fashion world on his shoulders. Having surpassed established favorites like New York based Baja East and Cadet, Uribe took home top prize at the 2015 CFDA/Vogue Fashion Fund Awards with his little known street wear brand, Gypsy Sport. Uribe delivered his second consecutive menswear presentation at the Skylight Clarkson Studios during Men's New York Fashion Week , where he further pushed his non-specific gender vision of contemporary urban attire.

Uribe always takes a slightly more imaginative approach to menswear. The collection embraces denim skirts, patchwork logo dresses, freestanding collars and unconventional models. The urban tribesmen, collectively conquering the cold streets of New York, would feel fearless in their Gypsy Sport armor. Uribe told his strongest story in pale blue with clean minimalist lines and contrasting native inspired face paint. A sleeveless knee length vest, matching joggers and other elevated basics showed Uribe is broadening his customer base with items that any street style aficionado would covet. It's exciting to see a powerhouse organization such as the CFDA recognize the talents of a less conventional designer and hope this open door policy reigns supreme.
