LAUTARO AMADEO TAMBUTTO
Gaucho - Buenos Aires, an emerging luxury label with global ambitions, is pleased to announce the appointment of our new in-house designer, Lautaro Amadeo Tambutto as the brand's Creative Director. Lautaro will manage the conception, design, and on-brand execution of materials for the brand, and will operate primarily out of the business's headquarters in New York City, as well as the atelier in Buenos Aires' upmarket Recoleta district.
Off the heels of a successful debut at New York Fashion Week in September 2019, Tambutto joined Gaucho - Buenos Aires brand in December, with plans to incorporate creative silhouettes and lots of leather with an urban spin for the young and culturally aware clientele. Tambutto's GPS Collection - slated for 2020-2021 - plots a course on a fashion journey that builds upon contemporary urban and athleisure trends. By injecting elegance and sophistication into streetwear fashion, Tambutto intends to elevate streetwear casual to streetwear elegance, and seeks to globally position Gaucho - Buenos Aires' spirit of Argentina as a major presence in the fashion landscape.
Born in Argentina, Tambutto's family originally hails from San Antonio de Areco - otherwise known as the home of the Gaucho. Having received his training in Italy, Vogue Italia has described his aesthetic as a "very modern and richly inspired take on sportswear," and it is indeed an appealing mix of references - "the sweet spot between sportswear, traditional tailoring and Latin American influences," Tambutto says. It all resonates strongly with Gaucho - Buenos Aires' own design DNA. Tambutto sees immense possibilities for the emerging brand to put Buenos Aires on the luxury fashion map and looks forward to bringing long-overdue recognition to Argentinian design.
"I'm very excited about taking over the creative direction of Gaucho and working with such a professional group. The team's support and mutual understanding of each other helps us move forward in the right direction. Since the beginning of my career, I saw the image of the Gaucho as an icon and my inspiration, and now with this opportunity as Creative Director for Gaucho - Buenos Aires, I have the platform to show the world my vision, my traditions, and a canvas to highlight this beautiful culture," said Tambutto.
