The collection’s natural, muted colors were given life through touches of yellow, wine red, and metallic hues; while texture came in the form of grass green fringe, organza, and crinkled hemp-like linen. And always one to play with shapes and silhouettes, Pedro spiced up the collection’s decidedly street-chic pieces of low-slung pants and sheer loose tank tops with pronounced epaulets, exaggerated looped leather collars, and over-sized, dual-colored obis.
Though not a single print was in sight, Pedro Lourenço’s S/S 2012 collection was still as detailed and intricate as any other. The 21-year-old designer—who’s been sewing since he was three, according to his father—was instead “interested in eco-architecture, and the idea of mixing woods with leather, jute and linen. These are very urban materials, but also make for haute couture fabrics and shapes,” he explains.
