The mood of the Luis Buchinho´s collections cross a line between masculine and feminine, expressed in affirmative, strong silhouettes. Every piece features an urban and practical side, constructed for life in the city, with a possible interaction between different garments.
Focus on day dresses, tank tops, pants and heavy coats, with a graphic element that can be present throughout color blocking, mixed materials or prints.
The elaborate structures of traditional appearance and original, graphic details create an organic and feminine silhouette, between classicism and deconstruction. This aesthetic defines a cosmopolitan look, aiming for the charismatic and the authentic.
