Carlos Campos Men’s Spring 2019

DNA is the building blocks of our genetic makeup. The fundamental element of who we become. For spring 2019, Carlos Campos returned to his brand DNA to display the growth and strength of his eponymous line.

This collection brings Campos’ design aesthetic full circle. Often, he has looked outward to artists that marked different time periods with their style. For spring 2019, Campos turned his lens inward and focused on the brands’ aesthetic of contemporary tailoring, graphic elements, and architectural design with a Latin twist.

For this season, Campos stuck with a rigid, yet vibrant, four-color scheme of cream, Amarillo yellow, pale sienna, and deep navy blue. Building from his fall 2018 collection, Campos exercised his design expertise by emphasizing geometric color blocking accented by stripes and piping details. He also stayed within a narrow range of fabrications, opting to focus on sateen woven shirts and gabardine wool coats and trousers.

Visually, the collection seemingly displays inspiration from a variety of Latin influences. A few shirts have a Western-element, alluding to the cowboys of northern Mexico and southwestern United States. The tailored suiting evokes thoughts of fine dressing in Medellin or Panama City. The bombers and sports jackets harken the urban fashion aesthetic of Brazil.
