Nouveau Spotlight: Sergio Wonder Fall/Winter 2016 Menswear Presentation

Posted in Nouveau Spotlight with tags , , , , , , , , , , , on May 14, 2016 by James Field

Last weekend in Brooklyn I experienced a wonderful presentation of menswear for Fall 2016, by a very special designer.

Mr. Sergio Wonder, my former design partner on the highly successful and innovative custom-made jewelry and accessories line  “Sergio + James” debuted his second consecutive clothing presentation among 5  other designers, in a showcase curated by our good friend Curtis Bryant.

Sergio’s aesthetic stems from his incredibly deep and complex love for Fashion, and the art of presentation on the human form. When we worked on the design concepts for Sergio + James, I was continuously awed and dazzled by his love of fabric selection, research, and of course the design process itself.

This collection showcased for Fall 2016 revealed both an expert attention to detail and a touch of urban sophistication in the form of tailored cotton bomber jackets with hand worked knit detailing, to tapered black & white cotton checked-pattered pants worn under a black knit tee topped off by a black cotton collar & button-less jacket.

Two of my favorite looks. Fifty Shades of Chic is the vibe here.

The main idea presented in  Sergio’s collection is a simple concept of utility and wearability, so often lost in independent designers so set in the conviction of bold statement pieces to garner press. He achieves this soft yet modern take on classic looks with various pocket details, pleated shorts, and 4 pocket trousers that create a uniformity to the collection. The more whimsical pieces like the bomber jackets, grey knit and jersey sleeve crew neck pull overs and long sleeve black & white jumpsuit, with pleats are fresh and modern urban chic silhouettes that are right on par with the current “revolution” as its been described of new, different and exciting shapes in menswear.

This color scheme of mostly black, white, and grey is simple yet incredibly powerful in its ability to reveal Sergio’s tailoring skills. Custom hand worked jewelry to jumpsuits and bomber jackets, his talent has without a doubt sharpened with time and it was an honor to witness the wonderful expression of said skills.

The entire presentation was quite poetic and fresh, and a well received display of tailoring, craftsmanship and passion by a very talented young artist.

Sergio’s collection was debuted during Brooklyn Fashion Week 2016, which seemed to magnetically attract a colorful and fabulously unique flock of artist, designers, makeup and hair stylists, musicians and the like to Bushwick last Saturday afternoon. There was even a reunion with one of our most passionate patrons to our former jewelry collection, Mr. Michael Ibidapo who wore his custom-made black & white, “Jo” necklaces backstage and posed for a photo with myself and Sergio.

A special thanks and Congratulations to our good friend Curtis Bryant who curated the 6 show designer showcase, doing a wonderful job of getting such great talent together and it was a pleasure to see Sergio and everyone that attended for gathering of superb young talent.

Royalty Campaign Project x Mari J Brooklyn

Posted in Art Nouveau with tags , , , , , , , , on March 23, 2012 by James Field

So about a few months or so ago, my good friend and uber talented New York fashion photographer Mari J Brooklyn introduced me to her good pal Michael Fernandez. Sir Michael which is what he is known by is a successful designer and artist hailing from Baltimore Maryland via Los Angeles, who finally has ended his path here in Gotham and this gentleman is truly making some waves in the music and fashion scene. I had the pleasure of speaking with him and Mari J as they spoke about the launch of Michael’s music project entitled “The Town”, I was immediately drawn in and impressed by his musical style and visual presence. We then participated in a wonderful photo shoot in New York’s Chinatown neighborhood, featuring Michael’s very own clothing brand CULT as well as some kick-ass Mercura Sunglasses and of course jewelry from the Spring 2012 debut collection of yours truly, Sergio James. We were honored to work with Mari, Michael and the incredible male model Ibrahim Baaith, check out the shoot and promotion video below.

The look of the shoot reminded me of some chic swagged out, china town street gang that just so happens to be models! It was a great day and such a pleasure working with the team and I certainly hope to work with them all again very soon.

Be sure to check out Sir Michael Fernandez and stay updated with all of his endeavours!

Sergio James: Miami

Posted in Uncategorized with tags , , , , , , , on February 13, 2012 by James Field

Hi guys!

I am so excited to be back on The Black Nouveau doing what I do best, which is blogging stuff for YOU! So these past few months have just been filled with so many ups and downs, and one of those ups was a short but fun-filled business trip to Miami. We hit the MIA in the hopes of finding some cool shops to carry our brand, knocked out some photo shoots and had a few business meetings. But it wasn’t all work, we did have a chance to enjoy the beach and some amazing art.

Please check out the video and be sure to send your feedback to us at

Thanks! Stay tuned for more.
