Oyster – East Geek Chic, April – May 2010

OSCAR CALVO

EAST GEEK CHIC
Oyster

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.

City boys – Oscar Calvo has your basic needs met. This season, the label delivers its strongest range of knits yet, using a subtle nautical theme to sexy effect.

Calvo’s fabrications are 100% natural, cotton, merino wool and silk are all used, creating blends that stay soft and cool, no matter how sensitive your skin is.

Classic cuts are given contemporary twists with Oscar Calvo’s considered take on colour. By combining stalwarts like navy, white and red with unexpected splashes of silver, Calvo enlivens old greats without straying too far from business elegance.

Our pick of the collection are the slim-fitted cardigans, which look as cute under suits as they do with skinny jeans.
