ModaLisboa FW17/18 – #Boundless! Lisbon based designer Valentim Quaresma unveiled his new jewellery collection at ModaLisboa. An all black clothing collection, with silver and red jewellery. A trip to the aesthetic references that marked the last century of fashion history. The Victorian era, the 1920s and the Industrial Revolution, Art Deco, Op Art, and the Punk movement reinterpreted in a futuristic imaginary. The search for lost sentiment in the construction of the pieces. Using materials for JEWELS: Upcycling of Victorian jewelry, photography, X-ray sheets, acrylic, onyx, copper, brass and silver – CLOTHING: Woven fabrics, denim, polyester.
