"Forastero, the stranger in a strange land" was the given inspiration for designer Carlos Campos' richly textured and earthy-colored Spring 2016 collection. The pieces were for the most part, minimal in construction with a cool "uniform" vibe which was carried through the collection via belted coats, sleek shorts, and a repeated feather print. Carlos further explained the inspiration and his execution of the collection in the official run of show notes as:
"Growing up in Honduras, I was always struck by the Forasteros, these men who came to our town to work, who kept to themselves, and although they were outsiders, carried themselves with a quiet confidence as if they had always been there, often, they dressed in a sleek uniform-like way that telegraphed that they were from another place without making them stand out.”
