Garcialvelez Finds Beauty In The Urban Decay

By Allison Merchant

August 1, 2016

Crumbling infrastructure, weathering minerals in the earth, sun-bleached bricks: the decay of the American cities in the right lighting can almost be inspirational in its destructive beauty. Carlos Garciavelez gravitated towards that destructive beauty with his new spring/summer 2017 collection.

The collection debuted at New York Fashion Week Men’s and held viewers in an eerie state of awe. Models stood on copper and teal colored squares, ominous in their stares against a background of rolled up wire barrels.

A combination of strength and vulnerability is seen within the palette of bold prints, overlaying light fabrics, and outerwear. The designer related this dichotomy to the expiration of infrastructure unforeseen from the original constructions in the 1950s. The serenity of wooden instruments and the model’s beach-like complexions are juxtaposed by a blue-green patina emerging from exposed metal elements.
