Patrick de Pádua – Lab – FW 17/18 : WEAPON OF LIFE
ModaLisboa FW17/18 – #Boundless! KALTBLUT Magazine Award winner 2015 Patrick de Pádua unveiled his new FW 17/18 menswear collection: WEAPON OF LIFE! From all the collections I have seen during the fashion fest in Portugal Patrick de Pádua´s collection was the most cohisive collection on the catwalk. With a great colour line from black to white to blue to bordeaux and green. Using fabrics like fur, knitwear and neonprene. With military elements and a streetwear concept, the collection is developed through a long silhouette and overlays. This collection expresses precisely these innumerable forms of struggle and expression full of personality that are present in every detail of each look. “I’m not proud of the battle, but of my fighting spirit.”! We love it. Watch the full runway show below. All photos by Rui Vasco.
