The Carlos Campos A/W 2012 menswear collection unfolded as naturally as falling leaves in October, quite literally—in fact, brightly colored fall leaves were beautifully scattered on the floor contrasting the whiteness of the runway.
In the same way, pops of color in deep oranges and burnt reds of his suits, pants, and Western-style prints stood sharply against the backdrop at Milk Studios.
Warmly embracing the season, nearly every piece reflected the hues of autumn, and ultimately, there was no camouflaging the strength of this finely executed collection.
Thematically, contrast colorblocked waists in complimentary tones were repeated, as was the use of micro-prints in the collared shirts.
The clothes, like brown trousers detailed with a deep red strip at the waist and a sienna colored leather jacket paired with adobe colored chinos, could make an easy leap from runway to real life, adding just enough style without excessive flamboyance.
And any dandy who doesn’t have the perfection of that oversized red wool hat will be sorely a-miss next Fall.
