The collections secured by Owner and Designer, Ramon Carrasco offer a no-boundaries approach to style and creativity. You imagine it … he can create it. Many customers choose to bring in a family heirloom coat and watch it be transformed into a wearable piece of art.
Here are Ramon’s 2018 trends that stood out:
Nature is basic and simple so he has styles reflecting a beautiful balance of the two. Patterns bring fashion to life and underscore the natural beauty of fur.
Shearing, tiles and other imaginative techniques have allowed him to play with patterns, volumes and colors. The purity of mixing and matching shapes, styles and furs turns a coat into beauty … in a wealth of styles.
Adding stripes in a mix of colors, fur types, volumes and crafted patterns impart special effects to enhance the depth of fur’s natural beauty.
Instead of a regular lining, make yours a “raincoat” with the natural beauty of fur to make that glam look practical in New England. If it starts to rain, just turn your fur coat inside out. Imagine how warm you will be now that the natural fur is against your body.
An enticing balance of the Primitive and the Modern, Ramon can achieve tribal looks by mixing colors, fur types and patterns.
Clipped, cut or trimmed, sheared mink and fox makes for a playground of creativity. Shades and tones change and different hair lengths emphasize the 3-D look of fur. Combination Texture and contrasting with different fur can be paired with just about anything … great proof that opposites attract.
Reimagining, mixing high and low cut fur, checks and florals, sportswear and couture-like pieces … these are the looks we can expect to see, street-style in WeHa.
