NEW YORK, Sep 14, 2014/ — “Twenty Five years in business is truly a remarkable accomplishment. I cannot believe it’s been that long. I am so humbled to be able to celebrate my 25th anniversary with my extraordinary friends,” wrote Carmen Marc Valvo in his press notes.
A beautiful collection that is representative of Carmen Marc Valvo’s signature silhouettes, the label’s Spring 2015 collection is also a re-imagination and re-interpretation of the designer’s own creations.
Definitely not a retrospective; rather it is a harbinger of what is to come.
Inspired by his own garden, Carmen Marc Valvo sent floral prints in monochromatic washes of black & white with the expected shades of gray in between. Interspersed with blue, red, pink and orange, thus there is that hint of spring.
Embracing the black and white trend that has swept New York this season, Carmen Marc Valvo sent out gowns in sheer black, sheer white and silver, which in turn pays homage to the shiny trend.
And the surprise this season, Carmen Marc Valvo debuts his new menswear line, another feather in his cup and an expansion of his burgeoning fashion empire.
