Chavarria shared his reflections backstage after his Spring/Summer 2024 runway show, which took place in the majestic lobby of Manhattan’s Woolworth Building, “This has been my most emotional collection.”
“This season has been my most authentic as a designer. I’ve delved deeper into my personal influences.” One of those big influences was the hats his father and grandfather wore while working long days in the fields of the San Joaquin Valley. “It’s a symbol of manhood,” he added.
White suits were paired with baggy pants and often adorned with colossal boutonnières. Casual garments, such as sweaters with below-the-knee shorts, bore inscriptions in Spanish that read “Grupo Nueva Visión Por Vida.”
The mix of dress codes was evident in several outfits, such as one that combined red athletic shorts with a faded double-breasted blazer. Tank tops and underwear were presented in a deliberately torn and deconstructed manner. Another pair of sport shorts also looked ripped, but a sequined turtleneck sweater offered them a touch of sophistication. The collection concluded with three romantic dresses in red, black and white, each with exquisite trains that left a dramatic impression.
Following the show, Chavarria and his team hosted a celebration inside BOOM at the top of The Standard High Line, where YG provided some memorable rhymes to end New York Fashion Week.
