After the ﬁnancial meltdown, Europe seems to be recovering from the storm while the fashion industry slowly gets back on its feet again. The force is back all through major European fashion capitals and Lisboa is no exception. New trends, designers and attitude are settling back in to Portugal’s fashion week, says Tiago Espirito Santo
In Moura’s spring–summer 2010 collection, Following … in Red, the inspiration comes from the early 1920s and the 1980s. The red colour represents the wish and the desire; the way it’s used brings conveys the strength, the love and the joy for life.
Other key colours for this collection include black, pink and a
hint of silver along with design features such as piping, double
collars and trimmings. The designer says, ‘I liked the fresh preppy
looks in fluid jersey twin-sets and the ones with “twisted
yuppie” shirts and matching shorts.’
A light and fluid silhouette is Salazar’s design æsthetic for summer 2010. She has created a collection that combines the use of draping with ruffles and pleats. Romantic yet sophisticated, this collection promises to please the modern, urban female consumer.
The key materials that are used in this collection
are silk, chiffon, jersey knitting, wool and satin with lacquered
finishing. Hues such as matte and brilliant black, citric green
and cobalt blue make each piece stand out with the help of abstract
prints in smudgy tones of pink, green and orange.
Faísca’s collection is all about fusion and the reinterpretation of
African cultures in harmony with a modern, contemporary lifestyle.
An oversized, fluid structured silhouette took centre-stage, playing
upon masculinity versus femininity. The pieces were created from
contrasting fabrics such as tough leather paired with delicate silk
china crêpe and georgette crêpe, in tones of black,
white, cocoa, skin rose, flaming red and deep blue.
