Susana Bettencourt
For this AW16/17 ORIGINS Collection – Bettencourt is inspired by a transformed perspective of the first experience in art for the human being as a child, our first colour pencil, our first sharpener, our first colored lines and the freedom feeling behind it. To this, she joined her intricate techniques gained throughout the years, combining in this way the best of both worlds: naivety of the first artistic experience with the knowledge.

This is the continuation of a new cycle for Susana Bettencourt work and after the sedimentation of her identity as a designer, now she can freely experiment and express her skills crossing, intersecting and fusing the fine line between technology and craftsmanship that she is so well know for. Through the knitwear made by her own hands, she will express her views, she will share her process of understanding and research.
