New York, Feb 12 (IANS/EFE) The convulsive decade of the 1960s, remembered for its protest movements, inspired the fall-winter collection of men's clothing presented by Honduran designer Carlos Campos at New York Fashion Week.

"The protest movement started in France, spilled into Germany, then spread to Argentina, Mexico and Honduras. It went global," the designer said.

Campos, whose creations have clad Justin Timberlake, Enrique Iglesias, Ethan Hawke and other celebs, makes a feature of slim-fit pants, some with print designs because "I think it's fun".

He said the collection "reflects the spirit of a guy who wants to express himself, who wants to be free", and recalled that he was inspired by the book "The Motorcycle Diaries" that describes the first trip made by Ernesto "Che" Guevara around Latin America with his friend Alberto Granados.

His two previous collections were inspired, respectively, by a Pablo Neruda poem and one of Gabriel Garcia Marquez's books.

"All that I read and see fills me with inspiration. For this season I read "The Motorcycle Diaries", which I thought was super-interesting, and then I saw a photo of people protesting that really impressed me. When something strikes me like that, I look for the reason. That's how I arrived at this collection," he said.
