Dear Shaded Viewers,
A true highlight within Riga Fashion Week, Mareunrol's menswear collection gave us food for thought and the ability to dream. Guests were treated to a moving and poetic concert on the stage of Riga's Opera, before moving on to the presentation of the collection, which focused on beautiful tailoring, sleek outerwear and innovative proportions. The Latvian duo will soon be presenting their line in Paris, so watch this space.
Mareunrol's striking event closed this edition of Riga Fashion Week. Thanks to the support of Live Riga, I was able to attend it for the first time and thoroughly enjoyed it.
