We sat down with director of marketing for Cubavera Luis Toro who broke down the inspiration behind Perry Ellis International's new line of men's clothing. He also talked about the spiritual meaning behind his work. The brand name is a play on the name of a traditional Latin American shirt, known as the Guayabera, and also the phrase "Vero Cuba," meaning "true Cuba."
Our monthly contributor Annie Vazquez, a.k.a. Annie The Alchemist, also happened to be in town and chimed in as well.
The line includes shirts of 100% linen, 100% cotton and linen/rayon blends, as well as woven light sweaters and polos. Bottoms include linen drawstring pants and dress pants.
