Herchcovitch’s womenswear was beaming with cultural references of nomadic/gypsy lifestyles juxtaposed against a royal divinity of a Cleopatric power and beauty. While his menswear presentation had a much darker influence, perhaps drawn from a universal celebration best known from its Mexican roots, “Dia de los Muertes”. The face painting was a direct reference of that for me, and looking into it a bit more deeply I can hypothesize that the color palette came from there as well, though his hues did take on a deeper, darker temperament.
Maria Bonita, one if Brazil’s fashion brand icons brought it back to the basics for Fall/Winter 2010. The collection was a lesson on graphics an balance of color. The Maria Bonita collection was the best delivery of sportswear in the Brazilian fashion weeks for Fall/Winter 2010.
I was happy to see Lara Stone walking the runway for Forum’s futuristic take on Fall/Winter 2010. I liked the contrast of the hyper stiff-constructed to the sheer-graphism.
The Rosa Cha collection was very on trend. The body conscious suits played so ironically with the lingerie/lace motif to create a kind of trompe l’oeil.
It comes as no surprise that Alexandre Herchcovitch drew the spotlight for Fall/Winter 2010 Sao Paulo Fashion Week, where he presented his mens and womenswear collections. What baffles me though, is how one mind can produce such contrasting thoughts simultaneously.
