Sao Paulo Fashion Week kicked off its Winter 2015 Ready To Wear season with the Animale collection. The inspiration for the latest collection from Creative Director Beth Nabuco, is ‘The Silk Road.’ There are silk, cotton and wool fabrics and colors of white and ivory, reminiscent of the historic Asian trade routes that began in the Han Dynasty back in 206 BC.
The looks is east meets west, also a reference to the inspiration title with trousers and blouses that are modern. The silhouettes utilizes fabrics with lots of volume that seem to be draped like kimonos but in varying lengths. We love the accessories too, with shoes and jewelry that are minimal while still sophisticated with short boots, necklaces and handbags. A pair of shoes with hardware on the heel on one of the look, perhaps references a sect of today’s woman whose fashion philosophy is ‘less is more’ and we want to agree too.
