Moda Lisboa – 6th October – Alexandra Moura

The show begins with mustard and black, a loose vest dress with a black satin bra shaped overlay, hanging away from the body and exposing a little bit of accidental nipple. Next came flashes of nude PVC with loose fitting t-shirt dresses – the thick fabric holding the shift shape away from the body.

Blocks of colour were the main theme of the next garments, still hanging away from the body in a grungy yet girly way. Abstract rectangles of colour were featured on the front of t-shirt dresses and vests that were tucked into hugely structured, layered rah-rah skirts that looked fantastic on the runway.  Necklines plunged in barely there suit dresses featuring cut outs and low, long lapels. Block colours changed to stripes through flashes of black and gold near sheer, all over sequinned fabric in well paired separates.

 Overskirts featured in both men and women’s wear, belted at the back and pleated at the front, hanging over trousers and shorts. Yes men in half skirts, if that wasn’t horrific enough... some of them had shaven legs too!! Menswear also featured baggy, block coloured t-shirts with striped cropped cigarette pants and casual tailored jackets.   
This was a collection of relaxed separates and interesting layering. Although the colour scheme was a nod to established SS12 trends the mixed hemlines and micro mini t-shirt dresses shunned them completely with only a few items dropping to the knee or below.
