Last leg of our world tour of fashion weeks with the 32nd edition of the fashion week in portugal with 26 shows in 4 days, the presence of big names but also the emergence of a new generation of designers to follow.
this is the case with young designer andreia lexim who delivers a collection with a strong personality around immaculate silhouettes.
fatima lopes, the local pride, who also presents on the parisian catwalks, delivers a sharpened style with geometric patterns and graphic cuts.
daniela barros focuses her work on the construction of silhouettes with asymmetric games, origami-style ensembles, sweatshirts in neoprene associated with leather and unstructured coats.
felipe oliveira baptista, internationally renowned designer, from azores, based in paris and artistic director of lacoste, demonstrates his skills around monochromatic silhouettes combining talent with austerity and sensuality. we note a true work on volume with sloping shoulders and belted waists.
another big name in portuguese fashion : duo alves gonçalves with multiple proposals around a key piece: the coat, oversized, belted or zipped. a collection that is characterized by ultra feminine silhouettes.
julio torcato addresses a male audience with strictly cut pieces, characterized by details of pockets, necklines, patches of colour and an assembly of materials.
young designer luis buchino offers an interesting work on knitwear with stripes matched with blocks of colour and asymmetry effects.
katty xiomara closes this overview of portuguese fashion with a reference to the work of rei kawakubo. the result is a dark colour palette from which a true femininity emerges.
and despite difficult economic times, portugal proves its diversity and vivacity in regards to creativity !
