Local labels shine at Sao Paulo Fashion Week


Vitorino Campos show


Several leading Brazilian clothing brands showcased their latest arrays of winter-2015 ready-to-wear creations on the second and third days of ongoing Latin American semi-annual soiree Sao Paulo Fashion Week.

Fashion brand Pedro Lourenço showed a 1980s-inspired collection at the event. Made using leather, crepe, neoprene and silk materials, the line featured a variety of separates adorned with sequins and animal prints. Based in a palette of yellow, beige, white, orange, off white, pink, black, green and red, the range included tulip skirts, long-sleeve tops with cutout detailing and printed pants.

Clothing label Colcci, under the creative direction of Adriana Zucco and Jeziel Moraes, drew inspiration from the streetwear styles of New York, London, Paris, Tokyo and Sao Paulo for its new men’s and women’s catwalk presentations. Crafted from jeans, leather, neoprene, cashmere and alpaca, the ensembles were based in camel, navy, military green, gray, burgundy, orange, cherry and vibrant green hues.

The range’s womenswear entries included high waist pants, cropped tops, denim trousers, dresses, capes, short skirts, jackets and coats. For men, the show presented shorts with matching jackets, and leather detailed chic Durinho coats.

The Brazilian designer Alexandre Herchcovitch drew inspiration from utilitarian gardening clothes for his fresh creative fashion offerings. Made from technology-enhanced materials like plasticized flannel and hand-painted latex as well as wool, denim, leather, silk and velvet, the apron and bib inspired outfits were accented with plaids, floral prints and geometric patterns.

Designer Vitorino Campos used jeans, jacquard, organza, duchess satin and zibeline fabrics for his brand new blue, purple, green, red, white and black based womenswear designs which included a coat type robe, a glamorous black stole, dresses, long tops, straight short pants and denim jackets.
