Solid pieces in the deep hues of the Amazon mixed with the prints of the native peoples had colors are bursting out in the light-filled room holding the Carlos Campos Spring 2012 presentation. The whole collection was inspired by the vibrancy of the Aztec, Mayan, and Incan cultures. The traditional prints that you might see on a woven souvenir bracelet are modernized and re-purposed for shirts prints, shoes and belts.
Trousers and shirts came out in an array of rich pigments, with the collection’s colors ranging from coral red, to golden yellow, royal blue, and a rich cognac. The Azul trousers are so blue they might be purple. With these garments one can be modish but low-key, meet the parents then hit a club in something like the Verde Trench Coat with a Mandarin Collar Shirt and the Verde Trousers. Stylish, refined, but not dull. The options with this collection are myriad. The colors are eye-catching and the style is classic.
