[en]During the second and the third day of ModaLisboa, I’ve attended 12 different fashion shows: 4 shows on Friday (Vitor, Katty Xiomara, Dino Alves e Ricardo Preto) and 8 on Saturday (Valentim Quaresma, Os Burgueses, Daniel Dinis, Maria Gambina, Piotr Drzal, Miguel Vieira, Nuno Baltazar e infine Nuno Gama).

12 different fashion shows, 12 different ideas and different styles.

Let’s start with the first one, the Vitor fashion show. His collection is called “Life & Death” and it’s inspired by the work of the eclectic Yugoslav performer Marina Abramovic, whose works emphasize a deep reflection, honoring death by celebrating life. And so, Vitor creates his “own funeral” with all these total black looks, both casual and comfortable.

The second show of the day was Katty Xiomara, definitely one of my favorite shows. Her Futuralma (future soul) collection is guided by the idea that as we move into the future, we should be guided by the past. Xiomara synchronizes new concepts with design elements from former fashion eras. Her result: past, present and future for a collection that is practical, intelligent and entertaining.

The third show of the day was the one by Dino Alves. For Winter 2013, Dino Alves plays with shadows in a collection he calls “Sombra Brilhante”. In western societies, Alves believes shadows evoke mystery. Yet in eastern cultures, shadows are a source of creativity, insight and deep emotion. That’s why Alves presents a collection with silhouettes and colors representing standards for what we are and what we are not, the duality of our personalities.

The last show of the day was Ricardo Preto. His “Luz Atlântica” collection is inspired by the white peaceful light that glints on the waters and seemingly spreads infinitely. Like this effect, his collection is soft and radiant, yet strong, like light itself.

I’ll publish the outfit and the fashion shows from the third day later! Stay tuned :)[/en]

[it]Durante il secondo e terzo giorno di ModaLisboa ho assistito in tutto a 12 sfilate: 4 venerdì (Vitor, Katty Xiomara, Dino Alves e Ricardo Preto) e 8 sabato (Valentim Quaresma, Os Burgueses, Daniel Dinis, Maria Gambina, Piotr Drzal, Miguel Vieira, Nuno Baltazar e infine Nuno Gama).

12 sfilate di stilisti giovani e talentuosi, per 12 stili ed idee completamente diverse.

Si parte con la sfilata di Vitor, una sorta di inno alla vita che secondo lo stilista si apprezza fino in fondo solo nel momento della morte, rappresentata appunto da una collezione total black.

La seconda giornata di ModaLisboa continua con la sfilata di Katty Xiomara, in assoluto una delle mie preferite. Una collezione “futuristica” femminile e pratica, che gioca con i colori che sottolinea il fatto che bisogna guardare al passato per muoverci verso il futuro. Splendida l’idea di disegnare occhiali e guanti alle modelle.

Continuiamo con Dino Alves e la sua collezione d’ispirazione orientale con splendide stampe e giochi di ombre sui tessuti, sia per l’uomo che per la donna.

La seconda giornata di fashion week si è conclusa con la sfilata di Ricardo Preto e la sua collezione chiamata “Luz Atlântica”, per via del suo amore per il Portogallo che vuole trasmettere al resto del mondo.

Nel pomeriggio pubblicherò le foto dell’outfit e delle sfilate del terzo giorno di fashion week. Passate a trovarmi :)![/it]
