Lisbon, Portugal – What can one, that is to say I, say about the new Valentim Quaresma presentation for Fall Winter? Personally, I did not love it all and for many reasons. The lack of colour was the main reason.
The clothes seem all the same and with no diversity at all. The models all wore leather leggings or leather skirts, which are reminiscent of Roman skirts and armour. Other than that we had few golden details such as necklaces in the form of an eagle. The necklaces with wings take us to a world that is essentially very similar to Game of Thrones. The last piece had this amazing detail of a golden metal mask that bears the resemblance of an eagle’s head and wings. But this still is s not enough to save the whole collection.
The whole thing was very weird, and I truly expected more from this designer. But all I got this season was black and even that in makeup. And in this writer’s opinion, the lack of color proved to be a completely fatal move in the collection’s perception.
