Juan Urtubey launched his namesake line J Urtubey at the rooftop lounge PH-D of the Dream Downtown hotel. While spring/summer 2012 may be Urtubey's first season for his eponymous menswear collection, he's no stranger to the fashion world. Born to father that was an art dealer and a mother who was fashion icon in Argentina, Urtubey developed a keen sense of taste at an early age.
Urtubey earned his stripes at Calvin Klein and Marithe + Francoise Girbaud, but it was his stint as an international buyer for Walmart that took him around the globe. Naturally his designs are a reflection of his travels to locales such as the South of France, Punta del Este, Ibiza, and his hometown of Cordoba in Argentina.
J Urtubey offers guys something for every occasion—whether it's a double breasted suit for work; a henley and jeans combo for the weekend; and a slew of easy travel pieces such as shorts and button front shirts. The collection is priced at $50-$75 for tees and polos, $200-$250 for wovens, and $1,500-$1,800 for suiting. We're sure we'll be seeing a lot of J Urtubey on many stylish gents next spring.
