Designer Carlos Campos was a veteran of New York City’s Fashion Institute of Technology, and started his career as a costume designer for acclaimed plays such as “The Graduate”, “The Light in the Piazza”, “Fiddler on the Roof” and “The Jersey Boys”. His eponymous collection includes both men’s and women’s lines, and he delivers finely tailored pieces constructed from exceptional fabrics. Aside from an online store and a worldwide distribution, Campos also has a made-to-measure studio in New York City.
The Campos man is a romantic one for Spring/Summer 2011. He is a nomad and a traveller who moves from place to place, stays for as long as he wishes and leaves as soon as he is ready. He is the modern Hemingway man who enjoys long afternoons at a cafe, one who integrates himself fully into the city. Lightweight 100% cotton pima cotton chinos are cuffed for effortless style and comfort, and easily paired with plaid shirts and layered under staple outerwear such as a light hooded trench, fitted blazer, vests and cardigans. Campos has been quite liberal with colors in this collection, as we see a mix of blues, deep maroon hues and of course, the basics such as tan and olive. Aside from the plaid shirts, everything stays rather monochromatic for that extra subtle touch. Overall, Campos delivers an extremely wearable and well-made collection that can fit quite seamlessly into any man’s wardrobe. via: Juncture
