Calvin Luo founded his eponymous label in 2014 following a two year study at Parsons in New York City.
The label has predominantly shown womenswear collections epitomized by the blurring of boundaries separating menswear and womenswear. Calvin Luo launched his first stand-alone menswear collection for Spring/Summer 2019.
Luo likes to put a spin on a temporal reference. His collections have explored the subcultures of ‘50s-era Americana, the dazzling ‘70s and a “Virgin Suicides” tainted ‘90s suburban America. From these time vignettes always emerges a strong and focused story, which has helped to position himself in the foreground of the new and exciting Shanghai fashion scene.
Calvin Luo is also the founder of Rouge Fashion Book, China’s first independent fashion and art magazine.
