ModaLisboa FW17/18 – #Boundless! One of our favourite designer from Portugal unveiled a stunning FW17/18 collection at the fashion fest in Lisbon. May I introduce you to LUÍS CARVALHO´s DEEP collection?! From the deepest areas of the ocean comes the inspiration for fall/winter 17/18. The dark waters, the plants and the marine animals that inhabit these depths, send us to organic forms and with different volumes. Contrast volumes between fluid and structured in materials with different textures. The feeling of lightness and tranquility experienced in this environment is represented by the transparencies and the brightness of the materials. The colors get darken, based on the palette black and blue, appearing deep green and oriental red as contrasting colors. Watch the full runway show below.
