The Clothes: Monochrome looks in white, kelly green, mustard, and cobalt comprised of slim suiting, breezy bomber jackets, and one masterful parka shown in both green and blue. There was also a tiny “dots and stars” print that appeared on shirts, jackets, and shorts to give a twinkling highlight to the looks. The pieces were slightly sporty in color but nerd-chic in fit, the kind of thing you’d imagine a Wes Anderson hero (Ritchie Tenenbaum, maybe) wearing to chase after the girl of his dreams and then stop for a quick tennis match after.
The Hair & Makeup: The slicked side part, now the official hairstyle of menswear for SS13, crafted by hair stylist Cesar Ramirez, and a clean face by makeup artist Karlo.
The Soundtrack: “Esta Luz Nunca Se Apagara” by Mikel Erentxun and other dance-y jams.
The Vibe: Busy scene at Milk with lots of photogs jockeying for the best position to snap the models walking.
Celebrity We’d Most Like to See Wearing this Collection: Wes Anderson or Matthew Gray Gubler.
WTF Moment: It took us 30 minutes just to get inside Milk and up to the eighth floor to see this collection.
What the Line Sheet Says: “Structurally tailored and imbued with color, the Carlos Campos Spring 2013 collection is inspired by the modern designs of Spanish architect and sculptor, Santiago Calatrava. Campos, has long admired Calatrava’s approach to design and use of space, and has often turned to him as an inspiration. In 2010 Campos collaborated with Mr. Calatrava on the New York City Ballet’s production of choreographer, Christopher Wheeldon’s “Estancias” by the composer Alberto Ginastera.”
