Dear Shaded Viewers,
One of the key figures within Portuguese fashion, Nuno Gama presented a fuss-free menswear show in Lisbon, focusing on clear lines and clean shapes. Despite their dramatic Kabuki make-up, his models wore streamlined suits and stylish separates, whose color palette evoked the beauty of the Mediterranean. Intense blues, solid blacks and pure whites dominated the line, while playful prints recalled Greece as well as primitive motifs. The news on the tailoring front was a longer, double-breasted jacket, which was worn with matching slim pants. Abbreviated waistcoats were combined with crispy white shirts, reminding viewers of a female corset. Of course, the Nuno Gama man never shies away from showing off his trim physique, whether in a relaxed short suit or skimpy swimwear. This was a direct and straightforward message from a designer who knows his clientele inside out.
