Nuno Gama / ModaLisboa SS17 – Photos by Rui Vasco

Dear Shaded Viewers,

Nuno Gama’s menswear has been loved in Portugal for several decades now and it’s clear that he understands the male physique. Compared to previous seasons, this was a relatively subdued collection, where Gama focused on shape and sleek lines rather than print and embellishment. His leitmotiv for next season is the structured jacket worn with a pair of shorts, adding cheeky charm to a classic silhouette. White and pastel shades dominated the show, which hinted at Buddhism and India’s traditions: pants were wrapped like sarongs, while collarless shirts were long and minimal. Prim polo shirts, featuring contrasting collar and rib trims, had a vintage flair, evoking the effortless style of 1950s heartthrobs. The revealing swimwear worn by several models during the show reinforced this impression, leaving little to the imagination.

Best,

Philippe
