Portuguese creator Luís Buchinho presented his Fall / Winter collection today at a side event during the Paris Fashion Week, drawing inspiration from the aviator women of the early 20th century, while maintaining the DNA of his brand.
“I was inspired by women aviators of the twentieth century who have a whole image of an adventurous woman, quite strong and determined. There is also ‘nose art’ with the imagery of the soldiers on the planes during World War II. feminine that was worked graphically and thus emerged this collection that is facing the city, “said Luís Buchinho in declarations after the parade.
The national designer presented his autumn/winter collection at the Oratory of the Louvre and bet on a ‘passerelle’ crossed by red and yellow lines as if it were a landing strip. The models paraded several winter coats with blocks of colours, typical aviator jackets and pleated skirts with different lengths.
Luís Buchinho bet on heavy materials, which he considers to be his usual materials.
“[The collection conveys] an idea of protection that is my usual materials, such as leather, wool, heavier weavings, tweeds, knits. That’s all part of my DNA as a brand,” he added.
Regarding the colours for the next season, the national designer focused on white, black, navy blue, notes of yellow, dry green and the graphic details, especially in the pants, in red and white. In shoes, the trend was for the boots above the knee.
The Portuguese designer did not forget the accessories, with earrings inspired by the shapes of the planes and three new models of sunglasses, a partnership that maintains with the company Ergovisão.
