Following closely the summer esthetic of the 1940’s, Alex Mattsson takes his autumn/winter inspiration from the US Latino immigration of the same decade.
Maintaining the zootsuit silhouette, Alex cleverly references a postwar street gang look with influences of South American denim styling.
While “chuco” can have many meanings, the word is often used for something that is “in.”
So the Alex Mattsson autumn/winter 2013 collection is definitely Chuco!
