Carla Pontes

Under the motto "Remember where you come from” CARLA PONTES presents a collection that marks a moment of transition. Questioning the pertinence of massive creations decides to work on the already worked and presents a living set up that reinforces what considers to be the most distinctive point of her work. Influenced by what inspired her the most during the 7 years of creations and assigns her fascination by the union of forms that reflects her pure and minimal design.

Exposes the richness of mold construction and invites the public to take a closer look at the lines that build the volumes of her garments. Chooses neutral shades to enhance the value of the shapes that sometimes highlights in contrast, reinforcing the building lines.

"They are timeless design pieces” – a maxim that the designer has always stood for – "they are garments for the here and now, to wear and wear out, to gain a new life tomorrow, to never stop wearing. We do not always have to look for the new, we have to find what we are more comfortable with and rediscover each of our various identities" affirms the designer to the press.

In a way of manifest "Remember where you come from" is a personal reminder about what motivates Carla Pontes for the creation of fashion and the affirmation of a new path. Without seasons and without time pressure, the designer believes in the renaissance of the fashion industry by its encounter with the pertinence of creation. Values local savoir-faire, reinforces the importance of sustainability, of recycling and reuse. Embraces slow fashion adapting it to current reality with continuity collections. In the era of communicative and productive speed, captures and immortalizes moments that respond to the new reality of seasons that are mixed throughout the year. Garments that follow us in time, connecting all seasons and concepts. Elements that are summer and winter, that today you see at the passerelle and still today can be at your home.

Having equipment and fashion design background, Carla Pontes never tires of curating the organic volumetries and subtle details that define the contemporary aesthetics of her brand. 
Its timeless design balances shapes and materials, on exquisite construction garments with architectural influences and unexpected details, destined to contemporary contexts.
