With metallic makeup, sci fi looking hair, and bicycles everywhere, the Czar by Cesar Galindo Spring 2014 presentation at Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week had mixed themes. Somehow, these all blended harmoniously into a few of the looks. One of them was a blouse and trouser ensemble that were both of the same kaleidoscopic print in different hues of grey. The blouse was a simple boat neck cut, but thanks to the silky fabric, and matching pants, it gave it a trendy look.
The kaleidoscopic prints varied in color, until ultimately translating into oceanic prints. These all work quite well into the 90s slip cocktail dresses. They looked fun and easy to slip in for a location beach wedding. Some of the other pieces stood out of the science fiction/oceanic theme and didn't really seem to belong. An entirely black cocktail dress, and a monochrome white ensemble seemed to be lost into another dimension.
“The inspiration for the show is the idea of virtual travel and a fast paced lifestyle,” Galindo told Latina.com. “I’m fascinated by technology – both by what it looks like and what it does...Technology has come a long way since I was a kid watching ‘The Jetsons’ and I’m so excited to see how much more it changes” Galindo told NBCLatino. He continued, “There’s lots of pushing the envelope, which I’m excited to share with the public...There’s a lot layering, because I think technology enables us to live in a layered world. It adds layers to us and it also allows us to layer on top of each other. So you see that in the design element too. Layers are a prominent part in this collection, as is a constant juxtaposition in silhouettes.”
Later that evening, Microsoft sponsored Galindo's presentation at the Monarch Rooftop Lounge.
