As firm believers that resortwear exists not on a hanger or on a shelf, but as a state of mind, we are big supporters of brands that embody the carefree spirit of days spent lounging on the beach, on a boat, or by the pool (see Huxter, Lilly, et al). Naturally, nascent menswear brand Hecho fits within that oeuvre–a pareo that will always remind you of après beach drinks at the Soggy Dollar or slides you can’t bear to shake the Santa Monica sand out of. Designed and produced entirely in Mexico City, Hecho is a curated assortment that transports you to, paloma in hand, to an infinity pool on the Mayan Riviera. Founder Jack Miner draws inspiration for the line from his uncle, contemporary furniture designer Tucker Robbins, as well as esteemed Mexican Functionalist architects like Barragán, Pani, and O’Gorman (whose names are lent to Hecho’s pieces). While Hecho is designed as a menswear line, Lauren was eager to borrow some of the pieces–like the beautiful bags, rendered in slubby linen and supple leather. We’re sure you’ll find Hecho’s beach essentials in your weekender again and again; this winning combination of beauty and simplicity has us excited to experience Hecho’s next destination.
