OC OSCARCALVO, a young, cutting edge contemporary Melbourne-based label making its mark on the Australian fashion scene is unveiling its latest Collection.

The Collection and Designer re-invent the contemporary genre and inject the menswear fashion scene with its unique brand of modern, sexy, edgy yet upscale and wearable offerings for the active urban man. The collection for this season continues its tradition of excellence in quality and construction, favoring a range of natural luxurious fibers including cotton, silk and linen blends.

Oscar Calvo gives a nod to the 80’s New Wave California beach culture and New York’s emerging Hip Hop scene, cleverly mixing materials like mesh and snakeskin with touches of neon colours with a unique spin, tempering the looks with black, white, and gunmetal. The use of unique accents like rope, eyelets and zipper trims completes the look and gives the collection an edgy sense of modernity.

The collection has offerings that allow the OC man to be confidently dressed for any occasion in his active, adventurous lifestyle. Highlights of the collections include tailored pieces with detailed pockets and large covered buttons, fitted shirts with small collars, hoodies, trench coats, updated board shorts, retro polo shirts and the label’s signature decadent knitwear.

With this trendsetting collection, OC OSCARCALVO will certainly cement its reputation as the contemporary luxury label of choice for the style-savvy urban man.

The new face of Oscar Calvo

 Daniel GarofaliDaniel Garofali

Daniel Garofali

This classically handsome “Mans Man” with his stunningly proportioned muscular physique was voted one of Cleo’s 50 Hottest Batchelors of the year and with his chiseled features, quintessentially masculine look and “Come hither eyes” I’m sure most will agree that he is one very attractive package.

It is with this in mind that Calvo has decided to team up with Daniel Garofali as the face of his latest Collection with photography by Emily Abay.

The Collection simply entitled: ‘Male’, is to be released in October 2010 along with a fresh website and another of OC’s ledgendary behind the scenes video of the photo shoot with Daniel.

If there is one thing we can be sure of, it’s that both this Collection and Abay’s shots of the sexy Daniel Garofali wearing it will be SIZZLING!

Oyster – East Geek Chic, April – May 2010



Founded in a studio in Melbourne’s Eastern Suburbs in 2004, Oscar Calvo is fast becoming one of Australia’s most accessible men’s street wear labels. They specialise in tailored, preppy ensembles, capturing the essence of an active, adventurous and spirited lifestyle.

Calvo’s latest collection includes nautical inspired cotton polo knits in traditional black and white stripes, a close-fitted v-neck sweater, and a prep-tacular press-stud cardigan featuring contrasting grosgrain panels. The latter of the three is Calvo’s pick of the season, and should be worn in whatever way suits your personality best, be it buttoned-up like a private school boy, open and breezy like the city that the label calls home, or as part of a geek-chic, three piece suit.

The collection oozes Melbourne charm, reflecting elements of the city’s art, spirit and glamour, with a distinct worldly feel. Citing Gaultier’s macho sailor cliché as one of his inspira¬tions, Calvo recalls his label’s first runway show: “The people, the music, the lights… it was electric!”

There are a number of things that set this label apart from the sea of sameness in menswear on the market today, but the most important is their commitment to bridging the gap between fashionability and wearability. Oscar Calvo incorporates a deliberate sparring of styles, both retro and modern, with a carefree attitude and a classic aesthetic. Bring out the geek without compromising the chic.
