Willy Chavarria Presents His SS20 Collection in NYC at ROOTS.
” I want to thank you
Heavenly Father for shining your light on me
You sent me someone who really loves me
And not just my body
He keeps me happy so very happy
And he loves me
I don’t know how to be
It’s been a long time since I had someone who loves me
My nights grew longer than the days
Until one day
It really happen
Sent true love my way
I know it couldn’t have happened without you….

Willy Chavarria presents his Spring/Summer 2020 Collection at ROOT NYC July 2019. WILLY CHAVARRIA is a conceptual fashion label with a cinematic approach to design and presentation. The clothing is intended to be empowering and expressive in its approach to silhouette and fabrication. The emotion of art and modern politics are infused into a reactionary story of the human will, often partnering with organizations to promote the advancement of social justice. WILLY CHAVARRIA approaches the SS20 season with a new take on minimalism. A quiet approach to silhouette and drape. Double layer satin styles combine with washed denim to create a soulful message of elegance. However, what I have come to grow and love about both this brand and Willy is this cultural infusion of the street and the hood and being fashion forward. You can be the hardest dude on your block and still rep the hood and these same looks can be accept once you leave the hood.
Inspired by the New York House and Disco scene of the early 90’s with a tough edge, the collection is both masculine and refined. Graphics and Peruvian cotton knitwear layer in to create mood and excitement. CHRISHABANA and WILLY expand their ongoing jewelry collaboration this season with two fresh perspectives. A satirical view of luxury featuring leather wrapped chains and crystals, representing vapid decadence; the other presenting a tough skin through the use of barbed wire.
WILLY CHAVARRIA and K-SWISS finally come together to create a vision of 90’s California Chicano Tennis Prep. For WILLY, K-SWISS evolved from what the rich kids in high school wore while playing tennis, to what the Cholos wore with oversized khakis and tall white socks.
In this collection, WILLY takes elements of his history with K-SWISS, connecting the original high-brow tennis classic with a 90’s Chicano rave vibe and washed out Cali-neon colors. Soft, chunky fleece jersey all heavily washed for the perfect slouch. Cozy and approachable silhouettes are all designed with the WILLY DNA.
