#ModaLisboa – WORKSTATION! Menswear designer Filipe Augusto unveiled his new S/S21 collection in Libson. WE ARE IN LOVE! Filipe Augusto’s poem is the starting point for a collection that presents a regular silhouette with some oversized and belted elements, in materials such as poplin, twill, jersey, lace, damask, in a colour palette that comes out of a black and goes through orange, blue, white, in small motifs, plain, checkered and striped.
“From sin, I was born,
And the light path said to be
Purification of Body and Soul,
Water and I cried.
Today was me,
Devoted to the eyes
They said yes!
