YDP will be an evolving seasonal project that will feature collections of young designers based throughout the US.



The Young Designers Project is proud to present  a preview of the Fall/Winter 2013 collection of Raun Larose.

Menswear designer Raun LaRose displays a street-wear inspired capsule collection pulling inspiration from his youth by infusing tailored schoolboy silhouettes and references derived from his Brooklyn borough roots, providing a functional yet interchangeable collection. While diving into many firsts, he experiments with mesh jersey, graphic prints, and relaxed silhouettes while remaining true to the origin of the brand by showcasing the strength of textile choices such as mixing neoprene and boiled wool with tailored outerwear throughout.
