Last month I gave all of you peek at Richard’s collection and now I will present some more styles. Richard is the first recipient of the Cesare Paciotti Accessories Award after completing his BFA studies at Parsons School of Design. In addition, to working with Cesare Paciotti Braqo also worked with Helmut Lang and Acne Studios.
According to Richard the inspiration for the collection came from his astrological sign, Gemini. This sign represents duality and he wanted to combine male and female silhouettes into his designs. Braqo shows this by using high-heeled feminine silhouettes with men’s brogue detailing. Also, the pearl ornaments are used throughout the collection because it is Mr. Braqo’s birthstone.
