Fashion Watch | Jerome Lorico | 'La mar' - an inspiration from Ernest Hemingway's The Old Man and the Sea

Jerome Lorico weaves a story about 'la mar' - which is what people call the sea in Spanish when they love her. An inspiration from Ernest Hemingway's novel The Old Man and the Sea. I believe the collection was beautifully inspired by this interesting quote from the novel - "They spoke of her as a contestant or a place or even an enemy. But the old man always thought of her as feminine and as something that gave or withheld great favours, and if she did wild or wicked things it was because she could not help them." Interesting how the subject and concept revolves around the feminine and masculine aspects of the sea.  It is fitting that the collection showcased both menswear and womenswear.

ジェロム ロリコ−さん の ショ− を 見に行って よかった と 思います。

The collections is done entirely on a favorite neutral of heather grey. His expertise in cotton knits is evident with contrast and function on the feminine bodycon dresses with beautiful embroidered details reminiscent of sea anemone. A collection that was always feminine but wicked like she could not help it.

OS accessories polyurethane neckpieces is an interesting reference to the harpoons used by Hemingway's character. The signature white bone like quality complements the shades of grey.

The menswear collection showed the masculine aspect of the sea. In the novel they spoke of the sea as ' 'El Mar' which is masculine - like a contestant or an enemy or wild. Quick reference to the sinister shark silhouette of one. An interesting mix of windbreakers, deconstructed vests, long ribbed sweaters and parkas. Quite functional considering the tempestuous weather in Manila.
