A chat with Patric DiCaprio and Bryn Taubensee of Vaquera at Dover Street Market Showroom

Dear Shaded Viewers,

I had the opportunity to meet the two designers behind the brand Vaquera, Patric DiCaprio and Bryn Taubensee.  The two have been touched by the magic wand of Dover Street Market and I saw them at Paris’s new cultural space which will be the home of Dover Street Market Paris. The two Americans moved to New York City in search of  NYC of the 80’s…they did not find it. A bit of a disappointment they took their thoughts and emotions of an era they only experienced in films and merged it with our times.  That is the NYC that I know very well. Let them take you through their collection.
