NUNO GAMA – MODALISBOA FW 15/16 – TEXT BY PHILIPPE POURHASHEMI PHOTOS BY RUI VASCO

Dear Shaded Viewers,

Packed with plenty of testosterone and handsome gents, Nuno Gama's show reconciled the worlds of sportswear and tailoring with medieval motifs and traditions. Finding inspiration within the mysterious rituals of falconry and antique armor, the Portuguese menswear designer focused on fitted coats and constructed jackets, from deluxe shearling numbers to elegant blazers. Showing almost exclusively shorts on the runway -paired with opaque tights for that minstrel boy's touch- Gama wanted a minimal and dynamic silhouette, opting for body-conscious cuts and easy styling. There were even live birds on the runway, proving that Gama is always willing to surprise his audience. It was interesting to see him step out of his comfort zone this time to try something vibrant and more daring.  

Best,

Philippe
