When creating his Spring/Summer 2017 collection, designer Andrew Coimbra had thoughts of immigration and assimilation on the brain. How do we reconcile the two, especially now, in the era of Trump, Brexit, and other unmentionables? A child of immigrant parents, Coimbra explored these ideas by remixing national signifiers (the American and Canadian flags depicted as mosaics of Mediterranean floral tiles), and by blowing up and branding Portuguese slang (Sacana, which means rascal or bastard).
