We’ve hardly rested since Spring/Summer 2013 but down in Brazil a whole new season is kicking off. After a very short break, it’s time for Autumn/Winter 2013. This is a transitional season for the Brazilian fashion weeks as it adjusts to the local calendar, previously held in January and June and now moving to March and October/November. Under a sun toasting to over 100 degrees, designers started to present a new season at a fresh new location on Parque Villa Lobos.
With references floating ramdomly from Rio to Aspen, designer Oskar Metshavat presented his small collection to a very small crowd. In only 18 looks, Osklen for Autumn/Winter took us back to the brand’s early themes of mountain sports and ski and clashed that with prints and cuts of the ever sunny Rio de Janeiro.
Fetish was all over the room at the Tufi Duek show. The polished leathers with plastic laces and very long and sexy sandal boots created the mood all girls in Brazil will want for a hot winter style. Sexy is essential when talking fashion made in Brazil.
We could also feel the heat at Ellus, where police – and their uniforms – was the leitmotif. An army of 50 cops were staged at the center of the catwalk, while models passed by wearing leather, resinated denim, and transparencies that balanced the weight of the rest. Again, the whole mood was very sexy.
