New York Fashion Week: Carlos Campos Review

On a stark white stage, a smattering of autumn drenched leaves was just the touch of ambiance needed for Carlos Campos to showcase his fall/winter 2012 collection. Made up of rich earth tones like sangria, terracotta and russet families, it spoke to the season.

There were tailored looks: double-breasted suits and coats, notch lapel blazers and a striking tuxedo jacket with a satin trim that showed his affinity towards the craft and gave a spark of elevated sophistication to the line.

More casual of course, were the shirts, where he took the basic floral print and transformed it into his own with triangular yokes in a color block effect and even a soft ombre treatment. He continued this two-tone color play on jackets and at the tip of his trousers, for a subtle twist to a traditional mainstay. Other looks, like the cotton-silk blend puff vest and the buttery soft burgundy French lamb bomber jacket made you just want to dive into fall.
