Deconstructed Styles with Skater Whimsy by Calvin Luo at NYFW

Is breezy the new couture?

Calvin Luo, the youngest designer to present at New York Fashion Week (NYFW) definitely made it feel like so, with almost a fusion of tailored and street style literally racing and skating across the runway at the eclectic choice of venue at the Whitney Museum.

The whimsy commenced with what he called skater girl turned whimsical woman, with hoodies paired with skirts, sleeve-slit tops with pants and drawstrings pulling together entire dresses in red and bold hues. He even had women wearing pseudo formal wear with a twist, like a shimmering summer dress, a ruffled top, a cropped suede shirt with matching pants like a suit, a detailed suede blazer on a dress with sneakers, and other such juxtapositions that conveyed how modern girls had enough attitude and sass in today’s tech times.

The looks were also gender fluid, with some men showing ruffled shorts with smocking, fishnet tunics shirts, crinkle shirts with chokers, mesh cardigans and flowing fabrics. Such unisex streams of design had become a mainstay at these shows, showcasing a needed change in mindset towards fashion.
