Moda Lisboa – 9th October – Miguel Vieira

This collection oozed wealth; it began in all white and gold with twisted roses of white net all over a skirt and jacket. The menswear was yacht fashion – think European sleaze on the Riviera. Cropped chinos worn with open patterned shirts, polo shirts with gold branding and gorgeous tailored jackets in purple, pink, green and white. Accessorised with shiny gold shoes, men’s gold belt charms and gorgeous leopard fur bags the collection was perfectly executed for the market that it was aimed at – the rich and famous.
Women’s dresses and skirts generally reached the knee; gold studded belt details crossed the waists and backs as well as printed gold foil spots that reached down the dresses. Many sheer details were sexy without revealing too much, overlaid with white lace, pleated and sequinned. Sequinned all gold skirts were paired with white skirted tops and the rose appliqué featured strongly. The evening pieces became incredibly glamorous, the fabric a sparkling mix of zebra and leopard in maxis split to the thigh and billowing behind the models.

The collection was not to my taste, it was well executed and perfectly made and styled but it was not something I’d ever consider wearing.... unless I had a yacht and a mansion.
