The big surprise of Carmen Marc Valvo’s 25th anniversary collection wasn’t the sparkling evening wear for which he’s always been known. It wasn’t the pretty, feminine florals and bold color-blocking. And it certainly wasn’t the Bob Mackie-level glam, because it’s kind of what you think of when you hear his name. No, this time out, what raised the eyebrow was the first inclusion of mens looks. And perhaps not surprisingly, they too are bold, floral, sexy and occasionally glam. The looks range from “take my picture” red carpet goddesswear to softly romantic pieces and even more structured fare. It’s one of the most varied Carmen Marc Valvo collections we’ve seen. He said in backstage interviews that he did it re-energize himself and we’d say he succeeded.
