FASHION, INK: RUBEN TOLEDO



Ruben Toledo
BORN: 1961, Cuba
ETHOS: Illustration and a flair for dress might be the most visible of Ruben Toledo’s many talents, but even a quick study of his work reveals him to be a sociologist and calligrapher as well. Fashion is not something abstract to Toledo—it is lived,  on the street, through his brush and becomes animated in the seams and folds of his wife Isabel’s clothing designs. Though he’s painted the world for Louis Vuitton, illustrating its city guides, it’s the free-spirited energy of downtown New York that permeates Toledo’s drawings.
COPILOT: His red-lipped, raven-haired spouse.  
BEAUTY IDEAL: See copilot, above.
