Designer Carlos Campos has been one the true success stories of New York Fashion Week: Men's. Campos began his journey as a part of New York Men's Day, a group show for upcoming and emerging talent that kicks off #NYFWM. Through the seasons Campos has evolved from group shows with an industry following, to full runway shows with superstar power.
At his Fall/Winter 2017 runway show Campos welcomed Latin superstar J Balvin, actor Colton Haynes, and rapper/producer Young Paris to his front row. Also in attendance were industry heavy weights Steven Kolb and Eric Rutherford and Nick Wooster.
Campos' Fall 2017 collection was about muted earth tones and abstract color blocking. Playing with seam lines to create bold statements in rich mustard and dark grey with oversized canopy print separates. Campos took us on a journey through his vision of relaxed and reworked men's essentials which are signature to Campos' line. This season colorful bombers and shirting with oversized pockets walked the runway in exaggerated lengths. Making the strongest statement were Campos' reworked outerwear. Robe-like silhouettes in an array of fits and colors dominated the runway adding formality and slight structure to the collection.
