Portugal Fashion returned to Porto, from 12th to 16th October, in physical format, but requiring the digital certificate. The last edition were in February and have been entirely in digital format, due to the pandemic. Colorful sets, bold hairstyles and trendy accessories and shoes were seen at the event!
This time, Portugal Fashion became with the motto: “What´ s That You´ re Wearing?” The organization of the event wanted to make people think of where do their clothes came from, who did them, what materials have been used, if it has a fair price… Sum up, make people aware of this important themes.
During five days, the portuguese fashion was highlighted at the Alfândega do Porto. There were presented more than 30 fashion shows by portuguese designers and brands. During the event were also round tables, conversations, “showrooms” and a brandup market.
Portugal Shoes were at the event on the 15th October to get some inspirations for the next season. And, off course, to know all about the new trends for the SS 22 and the other next seasons. So that, we can help you build your shoe line with the best designing inspirations and ultimate trends.
During that day the designer Diogo Miranda opened the runway with the show at 10.30 am. in the “Terreiro da Casa do Roseiral”. On this collection, the designer bet more on colors, textures and cuts instead of shapes. Dresses were seen on the catwalk, overalls and tunics were seen on the catwalk, because the designer worked on fluidity, since people want, more and more to go back to parties, cocktails and weddings.
Miguel Vieira was finalizing the preparations for the followed presentation in “Jardins do Palácio de Cristal”, while Diogo Miranda’s proposals attracted people´ s attention. The coordinates designed by Miguel Vieira matched perfectly with the surrounding space. The creator also shared at Portugal Fashion a more festive vision, at a time when events are beginning to come back.
In the afternoon, we had the opportunity to see the presentation of the AW21/22 collection “BUSTLE” designed by Susana Bettencourt. There we have seen beautiful and distinct designs. This collection represents the intrusion of the fragile (and post-pandemic) world of creation emerged in the frenetic rate of life. This is expressed through garments and artifacts. During the developing process, the designer faced one challenge: the
perceptual appreciation of craft techniques and the exploration of its purpose nowadays.
We had the chance to visit the brand up market and to see the other designer shows, such as: Estelita Mendonça, Sophia Kah, Maison D´ Afie, David Catálan and Pé de Chumbo.
When it comes to shoe trends and designs, we highlight Luis Onofre’s SS22 “Kaleidoscope” collection. It reflects an infinity of colors and patterns that celebrate life in its maximum joy.
The designer reinforces his admiration for nature and created a collection that is a dream of colors. The appearance of owls, peacocks, parrots, flowers and lands caught our attention, as well as the optimism of the shapes and tones. In his most pictorial collection ever, the designer worked with color and animal shapes as the main decorative elements and sandals as the preferred format.
