The fall 2010 collection of designer Carlos Campos was inspired by three things: Antonio Banderas and Salma Hayek in the film Desperado, mariachi, and the embellishments found on a Mexican sombrero. It was, as Campos put it, “a thank-you to Mexico; they’ve done so much for me and my career.” And what a thank-you it was! The inspiration played out quite literally in structured shoulders and neat tailoring, corbatin-style neck ties, and botonaduras adorning shorts and lapels. The overarching masculine tone of the show made the women—and thus the womenswear—fall from focus. But perhaps that wasn’t a bad thing. For both the men and women, hair was slicked back; the ladies sported centered pompadours for a modern Mohawk effect. The makeup, as done by MAC Cosmetics, revolved around a smudged bronze under-eye, coated with a layer of golden glitter dust. What say you, chicas: Would you try this bouffant hairstyle or smudged eye look come fall?
