Moda Lisboa – 6th October – Alves/Goncalves

The collection started well with layers of sheer pink and waterfall ruffles, the second outfit in a beautiful blue accessorised with plastic rectangle bibs.
 The angelic shapes flowed beautifully held with the excess fabric layers. A first favourite was mustard flowing maxi skirt that seemed elegantly timeless yet completely modern.
The collection began to mix PVC panels with vintage style prints, silk polka dots and classic shapes before taking a rather modern turn with shapeless square dresses. 

There was an element of divine Hollywood 40’s glamour in midi skirts worn with mid-thigh raincoats and wide midi skirts as well as tight below the knee pencil dresses. Suddenly amongst these beautiful classic shapes a strange PVC square creation would appear and seem to be mistake in the collection – although many of these battles between modern and classic worked beautifully a few failed and seemed incredibly out of place.
There were elements of this collection that I absolutely adored but also parts that I really didn’t understand.
