Lisbon, Portugal – Stripes and polka dots are the peppering elements of the new collection by Carlos Gil for Spring/Summer 2015. With them he crafted a lightly spirited outing for the season.
Tennis is the underline them of the collection. With sequined visors we see the models attack the catwalk with fervor. Though the designer offers nothing new or surprising in the men’s silhouettes, they do tend to be proper arm candy for the young ladies, who are dressed by the designer’s attentive work. For him all is in black and white. Of course there are moments when peach and yellow enter the fray. However, we know that the true palette is based on the previously described colors.
In terms of silhouettes, he does nicely configured, simple dresses, two-piece skirt ensembles and largely cut trousers. From there we see lots of moderately volumed pieces appearing in the collection such as the tops and the skirts with high splits. Though a simple little black dress is all but present in the collection, his formal wear is outstanding.
