New York City of the late ‘80s and early ’90s is the inspiration for Calvin Luo’s Fall/Winter 2019 collection which debuted this month during New York Fashion Week F/W 2019. While the fashion of both decades could not be more distinct, the shift from power dresser and punk to grunge and “denim all”, fascinated Luo’s attention.
In this collection, we see proportions at play and Calvin shows exaggerated volumes transitioning into deliberate minimalism with a layered line up of his trademark wool coats and jackets, multi straps dresses and tees, denim and eccentric knitwear, now juxtaposed with vinyl and sequins – a nod to the excesses of New York City in the ‘80s.
Calvin Luo continues to tell the tale of a strong independent woman, enhanced in femininity, now accompanied by a man confident in celebrating her. – GM
