Designer Romeo Hunte held his 2nd runway show this season at PHD, Dream Downtown Hotel. For his collection, Romeo found inspiration by luxe streetwear meets swimwear, made for the everyday man who wants a classic outerwear piece with a luxurious vibe and twist. The collection was modern yet classic silhouettes, which is known to be Romeo’s true aesthetic and they were matched beautifully with the Brooklyn street style inspired silhouettes and swimwear. Hunte wanted to mainly focus on bringing out the defiant look in his garments by incorporating oversized coats on his models.
The Spring 2019 collection consisted of light overcoats, mix media jackets and wetsuits. It showed the strong nature of water and fur through powerful and impeccable creations. Pops of primary colors blue, red, and yellow were seen in luxe mix media fabrics including mink fur, denim, camouflage, cotton, and French terry and the reinvention of the designer’s signature pieces. This season Romeo Hunte collaborated with Swarovski, Look Mate London Socks, Kopenhagen Fur, and Teva. You could see the models wearing these pieces while walking down the runway.
