Carlos Campos released his complete Fall 2012 collection to audiences at MADE at Milk Studios for NY Fashion Week. During the afternoon Campos' collection was displayed as a rolling presentation throughout the hour. Dimmed lighting vibrant mixed colored leaves on the ground and a runway formed from multiple copies of one of Campos' favorite books by Gabriel Garcia Marquez, create an experience reminiscent of a day in Bryant Park.
Love in the A Time if Cholera
The enchanting love story by Gabriel Garcia Marquez is based on a man who spends 50 years on a park bench waiting for his true love. Campos captures the elements of fall in creating his line of knee long coats and tailored pants. He successfully breathes new life into the old story as well as the chic-street-wear theme with the use of deep navy and wine colors on blended textiles. Modish color blocking which could be noted throughout the collection was executed superbly.
Campos’s reaction to long awaited love was well received by audiences who embraced the presentation with a standing ovation as it closed. In comparison to the pre-fall collection which was considerably a predictable mix of colors, his fall presentation from production to close spoke to the human heart while maintaining a masculine identity, proving even men can love.
