Ricardo Preto - ModaLisboa - Trust

Ricardo Pretos show was more of a spectacle than a runway show. The catwalk was laid with bare branches and soil while dry ice pumped out of the backstage ensuring a that as little of the collection was seen as possible.

Chunky knitwear in red, white and muted tones was seen through the clouds as were tones of mustard in double breasted sleeveless jackets. Caped outerwear in red started the collection well but the use of satin in backless, halter neck tops and dresses seemed to confuse the season.
Swirling prints, chunky knitwear and patchwork style details gave this collection a very rural feeling, the woodland setting reminding me of Grimms fairy tales.
