Lodz, Poland – At the Portugal Fashion Week in Porto, designer Miguel Vieira showed a collection true to himself, chic and in good taste. The clothes are modern, really wearable but still with a posh attitude to them. The show featured clothes which modern, career-oriented men and women may easily wear for daytime or nighttime meetings. The designer’s silhouettes are perfectly tailored giving the body crisp form and a sharp, striking appearance.
The designer likes minimalism but with strong features like great lapels, collars, big pockets, slits and big necklines.The colours are the strong to go to basics: greys, black, white, navy and light blue. Most of the pieces where crisp, monochromatic silhouettes. The designer showed also some structured, quilted pieces and prints like checks or vertical stripes.The collection consists of pants, skirts, tunics, dresses, jackets, shirts and suits (some 3 piece or double-breasted). Some sets have accessories like ties, belts, bow-ties, bags and scarfs. Another striking feature are the white sport shoes which give the sets more a dynamic, casual appearence. Everything falls well, so clean, fresh and modern, giving the models a strong presence needed in the workplace.
The whole collection — although crafted to business tastes — is one for spring-summer thanks to its lightness. To sum things up, Vieira presents a point of view for how men and women should dress: simple, well-made and classical.
