POETRY IN MOTION

New York: Inspired by the work of Nobel prize-winning poet Pablo Neruda, Carlos Campos presented a small, but thoughtful collection full of nostalgic clothes that speak to the modern man. Using fabrics from Uruguay, Peru and Italy (places where Neruda lived or visited), the designer constructed a kind of tactile travelogue. “Each year I return to what is the origin of who I am as a person. This collection is inspired by Neruda in every sense – from the way he tilted his hat to how he wore his coat,” said Campos, who emigrated from Honduras to the US when he was 13. The many references to the poet included the texture of the fabrics and the color palette (Neruda wrote in green ink, the same hue used in the collection). The effortless yet striking designs continue to make Campos one of New York’s best kept secrets.
