“I took the A-line silhouette that Jackie liked so much and turned it into a masculine, urban chic style that her son John-John would have worn,” the designer told Examiner.com "The Kennedy style is an American style. A lifestyle trend that is relevant today and timeless,” he continued.

The all men collection incorporated something that is very popular this year; “Sneaker Chic.” All of the models had on New Balance sneakers with vibrant colors. The looks incorporated trench coats, leather jackets, leather shorts and different colored trousers.

The colors chosen by this Latino designer are somewhat usual as they would more likely appear on a Spring stage. However, Seco used Jackie’s favorite pastels in shades of baby blue, lilac and pink and combined them with wintery shades of navy, gray and New York’s staple - black.

The A-line shape was achieved by putting oversize coats, jacket and sweaters over classically tailored, skinny-cut pants and Bermuda shorts. Fall fabrics included cashmere, wool, leather, suede and cotton.

For street appeal, Seco has collaborated with New Balance and to accessorize his line with sneakers that match colors highlighted in the collection. In fact, other items, such as backpacks, communications gadgets and gizmos, will also be worn or carried by the models in a customized manner. This season Seco has also collaborated with the recycled cashmere company, Greppo, on six different pieces that will be presented at his Fall 2014 show, including a sweater, scarf and leggings.

Sunglasses and handbags were a few of the accessories that were added to accentuate the looks. Floral scarf’s were tied around the models shoulders for accent; the soft colors of the floral complimented the pastel colors on the blue and salmon trench coats. The audience filled the seats along runway, which ran in the middle of the floor. The purple and blue lighting reflected along the gothic style architecture. The lighting gave the setting a warm feeling in such a big space.
