Death to Tennis

Fall/Winter 2018

For seasons prior, Death to Tennis had been showcased as a streetwear brand known for its clean lines and monochromatic collections.  For Fall 2018 the brand made a  bold re-introduction as a “neo-classical” menswear brand showing a robust collection meant to re-direct the brands image.  The collection was heavy in contemporary utilitarian outerwear and coordinating separates that were a strong hold on the new aesthetic.  Shadowed palm prints brought winter in SOCAL at sunset vibes paired with chambray and denim.  Floral prints were seen extensively through the collection best translated in shirting, outerwear and accessories.

Carlos Campos

Fall/Winter 2018

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.
