Inspired yet again by Paris, the Ma dame collection is dedicated to the cosmopolitan and
dynamic women of the world. The looks are
eclectic, urban and feminine with a fluid silhouette
and geometrical necklines in a collection that
varies between demi-couture and easy-wear.
A path for a new and geometrized silhouette
was inspired by Claudia Effe’s original patterns.
Ricardo Preto brought us a collection, where
pearlscent and pastel tones are lightened with
fluorescents and broken by primary colours,
reminding us that dressing can be entertaining .
Inspired by the cliffs of Capri, Miguel Vieira showed us structured pieces and tailored cuts in his men’s collection; and hourglass figures and alternating long and short pieces for an elegant look in his women’s collection. The focus goes on the printed and pleated silks, satin and embroidered tulle.
A sentence in Ridley Scott’s Blade Runner inspired the whole Aleksandar Protic summer 2012 collection. Cotton, silk, leather and linen were the main fabrics; colours like red, black, white and ivory ruled the runway.
A collection inspired by street environments where gangs rule with violence and attitude. Ricardo Dourado gave us the crepe wires and dry-touch materials in false white and washed black that combine in unlikely looks.
