For Carmen Marc Valvo’s 25th anniversary, he surprised us all with a mixture of menswear, & we were very thankful for his surprise as his collection was tropical & stylish in every way. With array of floral patterns & prints Carmen showed a hard meets soft collection, leather shoulder detail, flowy skirts & faux cut outs to show some skin.
The attention to detail was evident in each garment shown. Some of the men were strapped in with a leather cummerbund or we’re entirely free with a mesh shirt. The two contrasting elements were somehow made harmonious in each silhouette. Floral patterned pants with a crisp White button up, or a chiffon dress shirt with a solid pant. The collection was chock full of ease.
The swimsuits were the epitome of cool & were only for the daring. This collection was grounded in Blacks & Whites but never once disappointed with an injected bit of fun via a floral printed overlay. Carmen Marc Valvo’s 25th anniversary was nothing short of celebratory. Congratulations Mr. Valvo! Here’s to 25 more…
