Calvin Luo Spring/Summer 2018

Luo’s collection embodies the skater girl turned whimsy woman, who spends her days riding down the eerie boulevards of suburban America.

Hidden behind a façade, is a suppressed manic that eludes to the psychological dramas The Virgin Suicides and Requiem for a Dream. Yet, at night her frivolous charm is depicted amidst glamour and luxe. Her extravagance holds an air of mystery echoing Sophia Coppola’s portrayal of Marie Antoinette in her 2006 film.
The color palette holds some pearlescent hues contrasted with softer tones of yellow, blue and red.
Calvin Luo looked at porcelain artist Xie Dong when developing his textures. The sculptural element of the porcelain art is shown through a combination of different fabrics and their treatments creating ‘soft’ and ‘hard’ textures throughout the collection.
The Whitney Museum, designed by architect Renzo Piano, offers a minimalistic set for Luo’s collection. The glass space overlooking the Meatpacking District and the River, draws parallels with Dong’s work through the combination of ‘soft’ and ‘hard’ textures.
