Ricardo Preto / ModaLisboa SS17 – Photos by Rui Vasco

Dear Shaded Viewers,

Ricardo Preto presented a streamlined and elegant collection during the last edition of ModaLisboa. Balancing timeless tailoring with romantic accents, he let his models walk in simple slippers, giving them a nonchalant air. Preto indulged in the voluminous sleeve trend, featured on a ruffled cocoon coat, which opened his show. Menswear-inspired suits were narrow and sharp, while fitted shorts were paired with softer tops. Preto’s coats were strong and minimal, from an oversize style in precious jacquard to a deconstructed trench, reinforcing an impression of luxurious ease. If the color palette stuck to quieter tones -such as blush, cream, blue or black- the designer used vivid orange, pink and red to convey an upbeat and summery feeling.
