DESIGNER PROFILE

Oscar Calvo Male Couture

Oscar Calvo is a Melbourne based contemporary menswear fashion label.   In 2014 Calvo celebrated 10 years as an Australian fashion design talent. Calvo has become a creative force within the fashion industry in the last decade receiving multiple prestigious awards.  Calvo proved he could easily venture away from menswear when he took the top honours in the 2013 Myer Fashions on the Field Design Award with his ‘dramatic interpretation of the seasons laser-cut and neoprene trends’.  He snapped up first place in the fashion category at the Melbourne Design Awards in 2010, became Victorian finalist at the Mercedes-Benz Start Up Program in 2005, and designer of the year at the Fed Square End of Year Designer Showcase in 2005.   

Calvo’s designs emphasise customised, comfortable and precise fit combining luxurious, premium fabrics and detailed construction across all offerings; his designs allow the fashion-savvy man to distinguish himself from the pack as a trendsetter. The label offers pieces that allow the OC man to imprint his style and signature in any type of setting, always looking his best.

Calvo’s inspiration can be attributed to 80’s pop culture and the emerging hip-hop scene in New York, all of which can be seen peppered throughout his designs. It was his love for 80’s pop culture and his awe of the ever-evolving queen of reinvention, music icon Madonna that Calvo drew inspiration from for his latest and bravest collection yet ‘Candy Perfume Boy’.

An artist with Calvo’s creativity may lay dormant, but there is always love going on under the covers. Much like an artist working on a dangerous new project, Calvo was left to his own devices. He doesn’t care for limitations or boundaries.  Frivolity and reckless exuberance are his creative currency.  With an appetite for the risqué, tainted purity and scent of trouble, Candy Perfume Boy materialises with a POP!

An extravagant, avant-garde marvel, Calvo is breaking ground as the most unique male couture designer in Australia. His use of colours, fabrics and concepts smash stereotypes of men’s fashion, transcending gender, space-time and reality!

Along with the evolution of his designs, Calvo has refreshed his label to “Oscar Calvo Male Couture”.  The label embodies where Calvo has come from, his reinvention and the direction he is headed in. Expect to see more from Oscar Calvo.
