Designer, social activist, philanthropist and renowned businessman Henry Muñoz III has honored us with his presence at the People en Español Festival. Muñoz made history by becoming the first Hispanic to receive the position of chief financial officer of the Democratic National Committee during the administration of President Barack Obama. In addition, he has been a great promoter of Hispanic culture, especially through the organization he founded, TheDream.US, which helps DREAMers achieve their dreams and graduate from college.
But today what has caught our attention the most today has been his original look which, from what we have been able to talk to him, could not be more relevant to an event like the one we celebrate today and tomorrow on the legendary running track The Armory Track, in New York.
“I thought it was the same for an event at The Armory! I have combined it with a Alessandro Michele jacket for Gucci, target sports pants and these sneakers”, the activist told us about a style to which he confesses that he has spent about 20 minutes planning and perfecting. "I like the high-low combination and the casual side of the look, I think it works."
In addition, he told us that he bought these sneakers because they reminded him of "Moon man", the original statuette of the MTV Awards music video awards with a silver astronaut as the protagonist. "I imagine walking through space."
And, as Muñoz's outfit shows, the standards in terms of tennis are no longer what they were.
"There are not so many rules in fashion anymore, and although in the past sneakers used to be used exclusively for sports or for very casual occasions, now you can combine them with more elegant clothes and not clash at an event or party," says our fashion director and beauty in Ponte Bella, Úrsula Carranza. "In addition, this combination makes the style more modern and daring, and makes the look stand out."
