Lisbon, Portugal – It’s very hard for this writer to do a complete critic of the work Miguel Vieira at any given time. I fully appreciate his work and even more, I understand the work. The difficulty comes in the fact that I enjoy his collections so much that I never want to write about it. I instead would rather sit in the audience as a spectator and watch Vieira delight us as he always does.
True Vieira does not do revolutionary menswear. He saves all that for his womenswear. But all the same it is just a pleasure to watch him do what he does. And one is simply compelled to love it. For the men he has indeed created an army of suits that are dominated by classic cuts and navy blue tones.
For women he offers up jumpsuits in lovely waffle fabrics and long dresses in black crepe. Some of the later have no sleeves and are emboldened with gold zipper details. And Vieira also puts in lots of V-neck cuts and pencil cut skirts for sex appeal. He keeps the suits cut tightly and adds black piping in the hip tuxedo in grey cashmere.
