Fashion house CALVINLUO presented the Fall Winter 2023.24 Collection with a show, held on March 6th during the ongoing Paris Fashion Week. The Self-perception collection echoes the words of Patti Smith and approaches his creations with wildness and his business with calm; freewheeling creatively and defiantly enhancing his verity. As implied by Patti Smith’s quote, artists find balance by being steady and well organized in life so they can be fierce and original in their work. Wildness and calm, though seemingly opposite, facilitate self-dialogue; quiet bloom gives rise to flashing inspiration bringing a wildness that is true to oneself.
In art and dream may you proceed with abandon. In life may you proceed with balance and stealth. – Patti Smith
Calvin delicately blends femininity and strength through combinations of fabric, craftmanship and silhouette. In each seemingly casual pleat and stitch lies a metaphor for femininity: Draping fluid pleats dimensionally cut in soft chiffon; knitted fabrics mesmerizingly complemented by structured metal springs on shoulders. Combining bud-shaped taffeta pleats and knitted fabric, the CALVINLUO signature black suit is transformed into a transitory dream/reality like beauty flitting across a bed of 3D printed roses, bead embroidery, sequins and crocheting blooms.
