NEW YORK, United States — There's a handful of millennial labels paving the way forward in New York these days, and Rio Uribe's Gypsy Sport is one whose unconventional approach has garnered genuine industry acclaim.

Picked apart, his bowerbird aesthetic should find no shortage of fearless young fans.
