Nature’s Earthen Tones by Carlos Campos for NYFWM

Carlos Campos stated that if he was Maradona, he would grab life by the ball!

Having known him personally and attended his previous shows at New York Fashion Week Mens (NYFWM), as well as interviewed him for a magazine, I have become acquainted with his style, humor and his appetite for food from Honduras! Which is why I was thrilled to be invited to his latest runway show.

He described his men as entering a dreamlike state where anything was possible, with a melting pot of culture and different worlds. This was a backdrop for his earthen toned collection, a color that has grown on me over the years.

His were inspired by school uniforms, with cultural references and the hues of the Argentinian landscapes of the Salinas Grandes salt flats, and El Cerro Siete Colores, where marine sediment and erosion created layers of colors. Truly an inspiration for an artists palette.

His fabric choices ranged from wool jackets and outerwear to felted wool sweaters, all the way to lightweight cotton and silk for layering. Like many other shows, trousers were not at all skinny, bidding farewell to this loved trend. They were more full, often matched with deconstructed suits with oversized pockets for a casual appeal.

I personally liked the rose pinkย full length coat the best for its sunset hue, as well as the plethora of patchwork outerwear jackets with shades of gold, mustard and yellow to add a warmth to a menswear palette.

With a respectful nod to the Latin American way of life, this was a tranquil, charming and relaxed show where the calm radiated much after it was over, too.
