Versatility was the name of the game for Callisti’s newest collection this season here at MQ Vienna Fashion Week. One of the most popular shows at the entire week long event, Callisti’s luxe leather looks wowed a packed runway.
BDMOTP was pleasantly surprised to see an increase in menswear this season, with about 15 looks for men. It’s always a treat to see designers newly inspired to create menswear. Martina, the designer explained to us that for this collection, she was excited to delve deeper into the world of menswear, and expand her clientele by encompassing even more styles and of course, adding more menswear.
The collection was definitely a “collection”. Somehow everything fit together perfectly, and there was something in this collection for everyone. It’s rare to say a banker on Wall Street and Jay-Z each might find their perfect garment in the same line, but somehow Callisti managed to create a diverse, yet unified collection, where every style of man (or woman, for that matter) can find something fabulous to outfit themselves in.
The looks for men ranged from conservative to urban streetwear, with leather being used as the main fabric. However, the more conservative looks consisted of a wool winter coat, with just a touch of military-style leather on the top of the shoulders, perfect for a business man. As the show when on, we saw full on leather head-to-toe outfits with cutouts, for a more urban dresser, and of course–everything in between those two extremes.
Callisti has very much proved to be a high ranking designer this season, fit for a runway in New York, London or Milan, and BDMOTP cannot wait to see what comes next for this up and coming brand!
