Thus, he delved into memories of his 90s youth, especially by highlighting the grungy aesthetic of that decade and a modern take on sportswear staples.
Formula One racing and classic cars were another major inspiration. Rhude partnered with the McLaren Racing team on a capsule collection that reimagined the powerful stories and iconography of McLaren’s renowned Formula 1 history, conveying the style and energy of racing into innovative and progressive designs. The capsule included among others a smart leather racing jacket with V-shaped pocket flaps, and an intarsia sweater paired with flaming red leather shorts.
In addition to presenting his first fully fledged women’s collection, focused on flowing and asymmetric silhouettes in the Off-White vein, Rhuigi Villaseñor has expanded his range of accessories (both men and women carried oversize totes and small top-handle evening bags).
