Designer Calvin Luo Reveals a ’70s-Spanning Menswear Collection in Paris June 26, 2018 3:52 PM by Nick Remsen
Though Shanghai-based Calvin Luo’s womenswear collection is a few years old now, the designer chose Spring 2019 to introduce a dedicated men’s branch. Why? Because he had teased a few looks earlier, and, receiving positive feedback, decided to go for it.
Luo likes to put a spin on a temporal reference. For women, Fall’s look was all about modernizing the subcultures of ’50s-era Americana. For the guys, his premiere landed squarely in the ’70s. “It’s the story of the whole decade,” said Luo. “There are disco elements, denim elements, and some formal-wear. It’s about combining all of these, together.”
The result was a mixed-bag of knitted tees, coolly tampered with jeans (one pair featuring eye-catching embroidered seaming that climbed up the legs), Western-style studded denim shirts, and more. As for the designer’s favorite look? A ponyhair jacket and shorts. All together, the aesthetic rang of the costuming in the cult-classic movie, Dazed & Confused, but with a slightly glossier, updated sense of wearability.
Luo wanted to capture the moment, so he enlisted his “dream team” to produce the images seen here. Shot by Cass Bird, they feature Dylan Brosnan (son of the actor Pierce Brosnan); Jackson Wakefield; Arsun Sorrenti; and the model Naleye Junior, who has dated Imaan Hammam. We’ll be keeping an eye out to see what era Calvin Luo looks to next season.
