Vato Inspired Menswear

My mum always said Vatos’ were never a good influence. Thanks to Shaun Samson and his winning collection of the year award, serves many mothers wrong in saying Vatos’ never brought good things to anyone. However, I can’t picture a real Latino strutting his “hard-core” image in these particular shapes, but the structure is beautiful!
The transition of patterns and texture shows a smooth blocked outcome. His collection will be featured in SS 12 MAN during London Fashion Week. One I will defenitely be watching. And I’m not only favouring him because his comments did state the truth I wish to hide of growing up. I too admired the gangster life as young child, as an onlooker like Samson states himself.
It must have been a latina dark trend, which now explains why my mum encouraged me to join the school orchestra.
