For Fall/Winter 2018 menswear designer Carlos Campos looked to Mexico’s charro culture for inspiration. Cowboy boots, silk, pipe trimmed shirting and exaggerated collars went down the runway as Whoopi Goldberg, Young Paris, Emery Kelly, Ricky Garcia, and Fern Mallis watched from front row. High waist pleated pants caught the attention of many, shown in corduroy, wool and silk while check paneled shirting brought a contemporary twist to the collection. Outwear in all its vast incarnations is typically a strong suit for Campos and the designer made it clear fro F/W 2018. Oversized cape inspired outwear trimmed with silk piping were shown in various color ways but the piece de resistance was the short jacket with silk piping, exaggerated collar and bead work that really captured the spirit of the collection.
