Founded by Patric DiCaprio, 32, a former stylist from Alabama, and Bryn Taubensee, 32, a vintage enthusiast who grew up in Indiana, VAQUERA has enjoyed a steady build-up of industry buzz, celebrity followers and critical acclaim that goes beyond fashion and social media. With devotees including Rihanna and Tessa Thompson, the New York-based brand is made up of equally confident dressers; people who feel right at home in tinsel or large-scale ribbons attached to oversized blazers.
