Carlos Campos

New York:
Campos presented a collection that filtered indigenous Central and South American cultures—Inca, Maya, and Aztec primarily—through the filters or workwear, military uniforms, and contemporary tailored menswear. Tailored, pleated shorts safari shorts in shades of sea foam green or Celeste were paired with equally trim short sleeve tops that evoked both 60s resortwear and lightweight Latin American tops like the guayabera. Wide brimmed, sun-fighting fedoras topped off many ensembles, further adding to the explorer or guava plantation worker feeling of the collection, while woven “friendship bracelet” belts were a definitively Amerindian touch. An olive green trench coat and a number of khaki ensembles underscored tropical themes, while a bright purple double-breasted blazer paired with peach-colored trousers combined ethnic brights with urbane sensibilities, a combination that encapsulated this collection.  —Andrew Luecke
