Dear Shaded Viewers,
Entitled “BOUNDLESS”, the last edition of ModaLisboa, which took place in the Portuguese capital, confirmed the talent of designers who stuck to their approach and personal vision, using their own framework and references to deliver contemporary clothes with a twist. Nuno Gama is a leading voice in Portuguese menswear, not only because of his experience as a designer, but also his understanding of tailoring and what makes a guy attractive. This season, the silhouette was less formal than usual and he opted for t-shirts to be worn under fitted suits -instead of the typical shirt and tie- often paired with wool beanies and sneakers for a relaxed vibe. Gama’s outerwear was strong, ranging from a statement fitted lambskin and cotton trench to slim coats and blazers featuring contrasting textures, such as a classic gray jacket with thick knitwear sleeves. He also tapped into checks and quilting -one of the season’s key trends- to update daily separates. Although he went for a sportier look this time, the designer accessorized some of his clothes with bright printed scarves, a reminder of his passion for exoticism and chic ethnic patterns.
