Colin Locascio presents the SS23 collection lookbook.
“For Spring/Summer 2023, I looked at old images from my grandfather’s upbringing in Rockaway Beach, Queens, NY. I pulled a lot of our SS23 color palette from images of my great-grandparents’ homes. Prints such as “Sand Floral” and “Brick-A-Brack” came from images of the interior and the chachkis that adorned and decorated the many rooms in their house.
I wanted to inject and imagine what the Fran Fine from Flushing would wear to the beach- loud printed separates in mesh with hot fix rhinestones, crochet with reflective mirror, crochet 3-d frogs and crochet ferns all felt appropriate for the COLIN LOCASCIO girl. Our denim in particular had a washed-out treatment, referencing the sun-faded, sea-salt mist that covered so many of my family images.”
