Calvin Luo NYFW FW19
Represented by Rep Agency.
Calvin Luo likes to put a spin on a temporal reference.
His collections have explored the subcultures of ‘50s-era Americana, the dazzling ‘70s and a “Virgin Suicides” tainted ‘90s suburban America. From these time vignettes always emerges a strong and focused story about a strong and inspirational woman.
Calvin Luo: NYFW FW19
[portfolio_slideshow id=64701 align=center width=699 click=advance thumbnailsize=40 showcaps=false]
His Spring/Summer 2019 collection was seeded by “Les Femmes de l’ombre”, a 2008 French movie based on the story of Lise de Baissac. Lise was an espionage operative in the SOE (special operations executive) in the end years of the Second World War. Her codename was Adele.
Women such as Adele pioneered femininity as a stealth weapon – concealing their strength behind their glamorous demeanor. Calvin shows a balanced line up of coats and trench coats, suiting and strong structured shoulder shirting and blouses juxtaposed with lace, feather and rushing details to create his “New Look”.
Calvin Luo continues to tell the story of a strong independent woman, adorned in femininity.
