Timeless Duck Shirt: [Intimo y Personal] belongs to the line with most recognition of LEBLANCSTUDIOS. For this season, we explored the private sphere of our clients using clothes that reflect the Caribbean masculinity and femininity. Creating a character based on traditional clothing typologies of our country and interpreting the sillhouettes and colors that typically define Caribbean casualwear in a new way.
We expanded our range of products, developing denim shirts, skirts bucket hats, tote bags, and more featured products. With patches and embroidery motifs with messages like “Federación de Mujeres Dominicanas 1962”, “Federación de Mujeres Puertorriquenas 1975”, “African-Caribbean-Pacific”, that explore and encourage cultural dialogues within the Caribbean region and the rest of the world.
The names of the pieces came from important names of overlooked people in fashion. For example, Viola Longacre, the woman who had the oldest pair of jeans.
