Cuban duo Rolando Rius/Oscar Jimenez (Ryo) wows the IWFS crowd!

An explosion of color and culture was on the menu for Rolando Rius and Oscar Jimenez of Ryo as an assortment of red, navy and white, paying homage to the colors and pattern of the country’s flag.   Funky separates dominated the first few looks with wide brim fascinators and circle skirts, all reminiscent of silhouettes borne of the 1950’s.  But the decade known for outdoor theatres, ice-cream sodas and all things Grease Lightnin’ related gave way to patchwork pieces inspired by 70’s fashion.


Madras, velvet and florals were somehow interwoven by way of patchwork stitching, which may have left a few onlookers slightly bewildered.  But relaxed structure and construction made this segment of the collection a little easier on the eyes.  


Daywear was also a highlight as a few linen and denim looks were shown, reiterating the need for comfortable pieces for consumers who lead a more even-tempered life.  


Overall, this collection had quite a few ready-to-wear pieces that were carefully made and obviously thought out.  With tunnel vision focus and an understanding of different fabrics and patterns that coincide with each other, Ryo’s next collection will most certainly be a standout.
