60S & PEACOATS: CARLOS CAMPOS PRESENTATION
Honduran-born Carlos Campos took inspiration from the youthful verve of the swinging sixties for his aw13 presentation last night. Models practically skipped the length of the white-washed 8th floor of Milk Studios, bedecked in sharp modish suiting and separates which were brought up to date with the use of luxe textures and vibrant earth tones.
Outerwear featured heavily – a colour-blocked cotton and wool trench, a lightweight jacquard bomber, a navy leather biker with a rock-a-billy double collar. Slim cut pea coats came single and double breasted, buttoned or zipped, and one rust-coloured cotton bomber featured shiny leather patch pockets and buckle closures in the same autumnal tone. Suiting was cut razor sharp – in its more colourful variations, a horizontal striped trouser with rust coloured jacket, think Mark Ronson on the red carpet – while dressed down denims, one pair worn with a purple leather vest with a detachable hood, had a more contemporary feel.
Overall, the look was modern man-about-town; preppy and immaculately put-together.
