Starting the second day at Moda Lisboa, FASHION should be the most used word in Portugal and the young Portuguese designer Vitor matched it by offering a collection full of energy, inspired by gipsy culture and style.
He talked about his secret with Toonari Post:
“It’s a really personal project, comes from my wardrobe, comes from the clothes that I use to wear (…) and I worked on top of that and I gave a very new understanding for the bio. (…) In my case is biographical, so, is everything part of me.”
There’s no doubt about his great energy in his collection. And to the ones curious to know more about him, Vitor will soon launch a book about himself, a novel matching truth and lies.
After Vitor, another great designer brought color to the catwalk: Ricardo Preto, with a stunning harmony between clothes and women. The models were almost flying on the runway. Pink, black, blue, floral, transparence and lightness made Ricardo Preto’s collection beautifully feminine. The next summer is gonna be really well designed.
The collections far had increased the audience’s expectations, but the next Portuguese designer Luis Buchinho was definitely ready to bring on surprises. With his take on the colors for the next summer, Luis Buchinho combined the tropical tones of sun and palms with an elegant antique touch. The texture of the pieces on his models reminded us of warriors with the metallic protection under the armor, but this collection comes with decorative colors and ropes, infusing the clothes with a playful spirit.
The night’s international touch came from Brazil with Cia Maritima — their line of beachwear foresees a chic-cool summer where it is possible to realize the combination between comfort and fancy details. The presenters said that the goal is to reproduce the beauty of the summer nature in elegant beachwear, and this was surely reached.
Finishing the day with a golden key, Ana Salazar — famous designer and one of the most anticipated of the event — presented a stunning collection. Differing from the evening’s previous colorful shows, she played with geometric shapes and volumes using a color palette composed of black, white, and nude skin tones. It was the positive breakdown of the night.
Once again, we’re looking forward to tomorrow. Until then, check out the Moda Lisboa pictures and the trends of next summer from the designers and also the super creative audience who is making this fashion week one big event in Lisbon.
