New York: After several seasons of designing for “a clean-cut rock star,” Carlos Campos is enjoying a more calm and serene aesthetic for S/S 11. Inspired by “the dreamers, poets and hustlers who broke hearts and glasses in European cafes during the 50s and 60s,” the collection hinted at contemporary interpretations of legendary Beatniks like Allen Ginsberg and Jack Kerouac. Tapered legs were cuffed above the ankle and some had a slight dropped crotch. There were plenty of checks and ginghams for woven shirts, along with colorful suede footwear – all providing an upbeat pop of color to otherwise neutral-driven looks. Warm-weather outerwear was a standout for Campos, including an unlined navy trench, a blazer-pea coat hybrid and a berry pink cotton moto jacket.
