Oscar Calvo celebrates 10 years of fashion

Oscar Calvo

Fashion designer Oscar Calvo celebrates 10 years of fashion with an anniversary collection at the premier fashion event, “Fashion Connect”. The label’s best collection yet!

To celebrate, Oscar Calvo has created the ultimate collection with some revamped customer favourites and signature looks, as well as an entire new range.

Oscar Calvo has become a frontrunner in the fashion industry in the last decade, receiving multiple prestigious awards including, winner of the Myer Fashions on the Field Design Award 2013, the top prize in the fashion category at the Melbourne Design Awards 2010, Victorian finalist at the Mercedes-Benz Start Up Program 2005, and designer of the year at the Fed Square End of Year Designer Showcase 2005.

Summing up the label’s ten years in the fashion business, the collection is in your face, glam, sophisticated, and neither masculine nor feminine.  His designs directly reflect and contradict his main source of inspiration – everyday life in metropolitan Melbourne.

With colour and fabric combinations previously unseen, Calvo’s range can best be described as a mix of combinations that merge intentionally to excite. Oscar Calvo’s design philosophy emphasizes customized, comfortable and precise fit combining luxurious premium fabrics and detailed construction across all offerings.

The range is based on a palette of purple, green, black, charcoal and metallic. As with past collections, Calvo re-invents the contemporary genre and injects the menswear fashion scene with its unique brand of modern, sexy, edgy yet upscale and wearable offerings. The collection for this season continues its tradition of excellence in quality and construction, favoring a range of luxe fabrications including: embossed snakeskin, mesh, stretch leather, silk satin, georgette and organza textures, wool, sequins, embroiderey and neoprene.

Calvo’s key looks on offer this season are his fitted gathered silk organza shirts with small collars, knockout bold diagonal striped mesh tops, a chic cropped hooded cape with straps and buckles, a stunning sequin zip up vest with embroiderey detail and a leather hood, a magical tie up pleated vest with a sequin collar and matching back panels. Three killer pant offerings from this range are the pleated dropped-crotch pant, the pleated pant with covered buttons running down the outside of each leg, and the hipster jogger. A must have fitted metallic floral blazer with a small collar and slim lapel, a fabulous trench coat with bold silver metallic buttons, buckles and straps on the sleeves and finished with metallic acid purple lining.

Best Design Event – Catwalk Circus 2011

For their latest extravaganza, OC Communications & Events creates a roller coaster ride of orchestrated fashion chaos to a backdrop of music and video animation. Hosted by Stephanie Ryan-Smith with extraordinary performances by Circa Nica, Pole Divas and Patrick Studios, has assured that Catwalk Circus will be the FASHION highlight of 2011.

Fashion Menswear – Oscar Calvo A/W 2011

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.

NEW KID IN (CHINA)TOWN

 

Long overlooked, downtown Sydney is home to the exotic, ever-so-tasty food, cheap clothes and curiousities galore. The perfect setting for someone who is new in town. Chinatown, can’t get you off my mind…

Our downtown hero is a wanderer. He’s a modern Wizard of Oz story…not meant to be here but he is. He can’t quite grasp Sydney winter, nor can we. Smells, colours and sights are so unfamiliar to him that they almost feel like home. In this strange paradoxical comfort Chinatown has it’s final effect. Wanderer’s wonder.
