New York Fashion Week: Men’s kicks off July 9, and though more than 40 designers are holding runway shows and presentations, many of the heavy hitters, including Raf Simons, Tom Ford and John Varvatos, have decamped to other cities or gone dark.
But up-and-coming Mexican-American designer Willy Chavarria promises to deliver an “only in New York” fashion moment with his runway show Monday night, solidifying his growing reputation for mixing politics and fashion.
Coinciding with the growing immigration crisis, the California-born designer has teamed up with Danish sports brand Hummel to launch a collection that posits the game of soccer as a unifying force that transcends borders, race and class.
“It’s really, like, the immigrants' game,” Chavarria says. “Any guy coming from Central America to the Ivory Coast to Croatia — when they come to the States, soccer is a game they all play.”
