IMMERSION IN THE AVANT-GARDE
AND FAIRY TALE WORLD OF PRINCE ANDRU
BY AUDE SCHAMBER
Meeting with the stylist and muse of the indie New York-based label De L’Hacienda, a progressive brand open to different genders.
Prince Andru holds his princely nickname origin from his childhood, where his family called the royal family, for beings always well dressed with a very neat aesthetic.
Originally from San Antonio, he discovered his passion for fashion in college when he met his friend Brandon who inspired him and introduced him to the magical world of fashion and pop culture.
Jonathan Andru Acosta has been immersed in fashion since childhood thanks to his mother and grandmother.
It is with his boyfriend, Omar, creator and head of design at De L’Hacienda, his main source of inspiration, that he blossomed and gave birth to his ideas thanks to his fantastic imagination.
« Also my friends and all the butterflies
who flutter around my platform inspire me. »
By creating this brand, they wanted above all to share their history, to bring a renewal in fashion by creating a progressive opening to different genres, something that is still not done enough in this world today.
Diversifying genres in fashion: one of the main motivations of the brand. It seeks through its collections to give others the confidence it has never had, and allow them to free themselves in clothing.
He considers De L’hacienda not just as a label but also like a child. « My mom put all her blood, sweat and tears raising me » answers Jonathan comparing his care and effort on his work.
