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.

Calvin 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 about a strong and inspirational woman.
His Spring/Summer 2019 collection was seeded by “Les Femmes de l’ombre”, a 2008 French movie based on the story of Lise de Baissac. Lise was an espionage operative in the SOE (special operations executive) in the end years of the Second World War. Her codename was Adele.
Women such as Adele pioneered femininity as a stealth weapon – concealing their strength behind their glamorous demeanor. Calvin shows a balanced line up of coats and trench coats, suiting and strong structured shoulder shirting and blouses juxtaposed with lace, feather and rushing details to create his “New Look”.
Calvin Luo continues to tell the story of a strong independent woman, adorned in femininity.
