Luís Buchinho


Inspired by the Portuguese littoral, Luís Buchinho’s Fall/Winter 2017-18 collection captures the nautical environment featured in the Portuguese coast. The cliffs, rocks, the sand, the fishermen and all the aspects involved in the Portuguese seaside ambience and landscape are portrayed in several moments, on a clearly urban line with timeless pieces, resistant to atmospheric disturbances and the passage of time.

Long silhouettes, in a total look and built with layers suggesting skirts and trousers overlapped, expresses the merge between a masculine and feminine look. Silk prints featuring rocks and clay motifs, elastic fabrics with graphic elements withdrawn from fishing boats, wool fabrics with a "leather look” treatment, lace and mesh coated with glowing black pellicle and cotton and nylon trench-coats take an important role to translate the seaside ambience.

The colour scheme, neutral and sober, goes from black, clay, navy blue and anthracite to a pop of bright red and white.

This season annunciates the beginning of a partnership between Luis Buchinho and the group Ergovisão, in the development of a sunglasses line.
