(I like to translate everything i see in seeing the mix in miami of all the great people down here from across the world.)
HE'S TAKEN HIS UNIQUE CLOTHING LINE ALL THE WAY TO NEIMAN MARCUS AND MIZNER PARK'S JACOBSONS. ITS COMPLETE WITH FUNKY TEXTURES, PATTERNS, AND TROPICALCOLORS STRAIGHT OUT OF MOTHER NATURE'S CLOSET.
(Definitely the green I always think of palm trees down in miami getting into the hues of the sand the beiges and brown from the trees. and just the natural blue from the ocean.)
HE MIXES RICH COLORS ALONG WITH FINE DETAILS...AND IF YOU DON'T AGREE, JUST ASKHIS CUSTOMERS.
