Dear Shaded Viewers,

This season, Portuguese designer Luís Carvalho was inspired by all things metallic, with fabrics reflecting light and capturing different nuances and angles. Whether it be lurex, lamé or playful sequins, Carvalho used textured materials to give the simplest shapes a striking feel, mainly for his tailoring and eveningwear. Origami inspired pleats and bold ruffles were featured on some of the most intricate womenswear’s looks, which had an architectural quality and expressed Carvalho’s taste for drama. Menswear was, in comparison, quite a pared-down affair, focusing on dark slim suits with the occasional flash of a silver blouson and matching pants. Contributing to the opulent feel of the collection, intense jewel tones were prominent this time, ranging from emerald green and plum to deep red and burgundy.
