Juan Gabriel Is The Inspiration For This Honduran’s Latest Fashion Collection And It’s Magical

Honduran fashion designer Carlos Campos is a huge fan of the late Juan Gabriel. So much in fact, that he honored the music legend in his latest runway show.

Carlos Campos debuted his Juan Gabriel-inspired men’s fall 2018 collection at his own show on Feb. 6.

Campos told Women’s Wear Daily that his designs and tailoring were inspired by the traditional charro outfit.

“I love mariachis and their music and I wanted to reinterpret what Juan Gabriel would have worn today,” Campos told WWD.

The line is rich in color, and also features lots of turtlenecks matched with blazers.

Campos, who was inspired to be a fashion designer by his father who was a master tailer, launched his first collection in 2007. His show this year had a few celebs in attendance including Whoopi Goldberg. Campos’ use of turtlenecks shouldn’t be a surprise to anyone paying attention to the latest trends since it is one of the hottest looks right now.

Here’s a clip of the show, and check out the music. Juan Gabriel would be proud.

You’ll probably get chills just watching it.

His fans clearly loved it too.

Campos has used his platform as a fashion designer to bring attention to the immigration debate surrounding Dreamers and DACA recipients. He came to the U.S. without documentation when he was only 13 but has since changed his status.

I am the perfect example of the American dream,” Carlos told AFP News. “I am a dreamer and I will continue to be.” He also said: “I sympathize with them because I lived this situation for many years. “It’s very sad to see them in that situation ― we all deserve an opportunity.”

JuanGa is clearly still very missed by his fans.

In the two years that have passed since her debut as an actress in the 2018 Academy Award-winning film Roma, Yaltiza Aparicio has established herself as a Hollywood “get.” The Indigenous actress has appeared countless times on the cover of magazines, ones like Vogue México and Vanity Fair, and has been featured in ad campaigns for designers like Rodarte. So it’s no surprise that she has now been tapped to be part of Dior’s new campaign “Dior Stands with Women.”

As part of an effort to celebrate women across the film, beauty, and health industries Dior has launched its “Dior Stands with Women” campaign.

On Monday, the fashion brand announced it had launched a series of short films honoring women and their contributions to the industries and communities which they occupy. The campaign features actresses like Yaltiza Aparicio, model Paloma Elsesser, dancer Leyna Bloom, Cara Delevingne, Charlize Theron, Parris Goebel, and others.

In a statement about the campaign, Dior announced their intent in a post on Instagram. “Inspired by the exceptional women who have marked its history, Christian Dior Parfums unveils a series of short filmed portraits that give a chance to speak to extraordinary women,” it reads.

Speaking in the portrait series, Aparicio explains “For me, being a woman means being strong, always holding your head up because they tell you what they say, you must be sure of what you are capable of,” she went onto say that as “as an ambassador for UNESCO, my role is to represent indigenous communities with dignity. Give them a voice and visibility, which is something that we have lacked for a long time… Women have fought for many years for gender equality. It is not about being superior to men, it is about having the same opportunities, that in your work they give you a fair salary and not simply because you are a woman they pay you less or that they consider that you have fewer capacities simply because you are a woman.”

Speaking about their journeys, actresses Cara Delevinge and Charlize Theron touched on being unapologetic and part of male-dominated industries.

Check out Yalitza and the others in the Dior campaigns below.

These $1,200 Gucci Jeans Are Designed With Grass Stains Around The Knees And Are Not Worth The Joke

These $1,200 Gucci Jeans Are Designed With Grass Stains Around The Knees And Are Not Worth The Joke

In these tough times, Gucci’s latest line proves that you might be able to get a fortune out of the jeans you use as workwear in the yard. The upscale label recently launched a new line of jeans and overalls featuring a grass stain effect on their knees. But these are not your father’s cutting the lawn jeans.

The oversized pants retail for a cool $1,400 and feature large pockets and side buttons…

Users on Twitter were quick to question whether or not the new jeans were a joke by Gucci or a reflection of just how tone-deaf the high-end label is.

“How did it take so long for this to become a thing? My entire wardrobe just became more valuable!” one user tweeted in response. A second user commented, “Yeah not a Good Look!!! Wouldn’t buy those Jeans at the Thrift Store for a Dollar!!!”

It wasn’t long ago that the designer brand received criticism for selling warn-in sneakers that were “treated for an all-over distressed effect.”

The kicks were valued at $870. The brand’s description of the shoe design boasted that it was inspired by “vintage” 70s styles.

“The Screener sneakers — named for the defensive sports move — feature the Web stripe on the side and vintage Gucci logo, treated for an allover distressed effect,” the website explained.

Takeaway? Money sure can’t buy good taste.
