I hunt for the liquid measure of your steps.
~ Pablo Neruda
Honduran designer Carlos Campos created a Fall/Winter 2011 menswear collection inspired by the poetry of Pablo Neruda. Campos used muted colors, with an emphasis on green because Neruda wrote with green ink. Campos said, "This collection is inspired by the Chilean poet Pablo Neruda in every sense: from the way I used his hat to how he wore his coat." Neruda was a breath-taking poet, and it is gratifying to see this attractive collection honoring him.
While I'm at it, here are a couple of musical outfits from Three As Four, Fall/Winter 2011:
* A poem by Pablo Neruda that I posted a few years back.
* For more literary clothes: Miles to Go clothing (my favorites are the Bell Jar, the Invisible Man, and the Cost of Ideas).
