Moda Lisboa | Adidas SS/12

The Adidas show was more a consecutive line up of Portugal’s A-listers. I have no idea who any of the people were but most raise screams from the Portuguese audience, whooping and clapping was continuous throughout the show! The first male came out topless flexing a ridiculously buff torso, can’t remember what the shorts looked like… were they shorts or trousers?!
ANYWAY
The collection begins with blue red and white as well as black with flashes of neon, the clothes slowly become less sportswear and more catwalk with stilettos and sparkling shin pads. A men’s metallic fringed jacket introduced the cowboy styles and were followed shortly by an amazing pair of black and white cowboy boot style trainers!
Women’s basket ball tops featured tail jacket details and were worn with tiny shorts and knee high socks. Another men’s style that was interesting was a zip up jacket with a padded six pack – super hero style! Other interesting garments included snake like high shine print, a zip front onsie, flag themed jackets with stars and stripes and GB flag leggings.

The end of the show featured every single celeb and model back on the catwalk in matching t-shirts that they then stripped off and threw into the audience, I didn’t catch one but was not too upset to not receive a slightly sweaty second hand t-shirt…
Adidas is great, tried and tested sportswear and the show was incredibly entertaining – I adored the western style items!

The second to last show of the evening, after 4 Red Bulls have worn off and I come crashing back to earth I take the chance of the show running over an hour late to have a cheeky nap behind my sunglasses… picture to come!
The White Tent show was made up mainly of pin stripe in varying colours starting with black and white draw stringed macintosh coats with navy blue pinstriped cropped trousers. A few flashes of muted green in feminine dresses with wide skirts and through to red. Other than pinstripe the first outfits only really featured grey jersey as an alternative.
Metallic silver crept into the show with high shine laser cut shorts and foil like jackets.
The second half was more interesting with more rain macs but this time in a light sheer khaki with pockets and worn over tight cropped trousers.
Very consistent and ready to wear.

The collection began with two beautiful taupe dresses, with short aline skirts and stunning crystal trim embellishment, belted at the waist and totally to die for. From here the collection just became more and more gorgeous. Magenta crept into the collection in the form of a gorgeous feminine maxi dress and also a shorter evening dress with stone damask like overlay framing the body perfectly as well as a pair of magenta cigarette pants worn with a white sheer shirt, the shoulders embellished with silver stunning concentric crystals.
Gorgeous maxi dresses flowed with sheer tops covered in the stunning crystal embellishment; a favourite crystallised item is a pair of leggings, covered in silver crystals, last night I saw the same in gold being worn by Dawids design assistant at the fashion TV party.
Another favourite was a stone coloured feather mini dress, completely covered in fluffy fine feathers and belted at the waist. Every girl in the room couldn’t help but fall in love with this princess like collection.
A little bit of green featured in the mottled green print as well as in crystal. One suit was backless except for crystallised green cage straps. Many of the dresses were also backless which is a trend emerging this season.
There were three main shapes in this collection, gorgeously made tailored suits in a mottelled green print, the girly short skirted, a line dresses scattered in crystals and a faded black flower print and finally stunning Grecian maxi dresses, strapless, gathered beautifully at the top and billowing out behind.
The collection was accessorised with oversized leather bags, beautiful matching shoes with tassels and sparkles and the hair was worn in a messy plait wrapped around the head Heidi style.
Such a gorgeous collection!!

Moda Lisboa | Filipe Fiasca SS/12

The Filipe Fiasca collection was full of chic looking shapes and gorgeous organic colours featured in dip dye style and splattered prints. Structuring began subtly with excess fabric flowing into shapes rather than being deliberately chunky. In collaboration with Triumph underwear there wear some gorgeous pieces of underwear, vintage style with high waists and cone shapes bras, embellished with sparkling black studs.

The dip dyed style fabric seemed almost accidental and was really beautifully created, fitting so well with the shapes displayed. The sophisticated shapes were mainly very wearable and would suit an office and the blazers were divine. Hemlines varied, featuring maxi dresses, mini dresses with high round necklines and many dropping just above the knee. Although there were a few pieces that didn’t seem to fit this collection was overall really beautiful and enjoyable show!

The finale piece was a dip dyed grey and white maxi which the model unzipped and stepped out of at the end, displaying the high waisted underwear, covered again in the black shimmering large studs. When the designer came out to great applause he ran down the runway hand in hand with the last model who he then picked up span around and sprinted back – beautiful to see a girl running in her stilettos with a gorgeous satin creation flying behind her!

Moda Lisboa | Ricardo Andrez SS/12

Ricardo Andrez’s collection was all menswear – the show began with a geometric kaleidoscope print similar to those popular a few summers ago. Next came t-shirts worn with tiny weenie men’s briefs in white with orange print. The ready to wear collection was jazzed up with cut outs on sleeves shoulders and legs and leather look fabric was popular in short shorts and jackets. An interesting print was a mottled grey stone look fabric that was used for a large portion of the show mixed with salmon, gortex like fabrics and the digital kaleidoscope prints. All of the bottom halves of the outfits were incredibly tight fitting and nothing was spared- honestly I could see the outline of evvvverything. The collection was ready to wear and interesting and I really loved the prints but I felt that the kaleidoscope look has been done before.

This show is renowned for its insanely attractive models and divine tailoring and it did not disappoint.
Starting with very traditional, dapper tailoring with wide full cravat style neckties, fastened with sparkling pins, worn with shirts, waistcoats and full suits. The first suit grey with black details and lapels and then red moving through to a grey and purple plaid. The collection turns more casual with geometric black and white print suits and then shorts, sleeveless shirts and cropped suit jackets. The colours swing between pastels and brighter, yet washed out shades and t-shirts featuring damask style vintage prints featuring the brands cross logo. Knitted polo shirts with low slung necks also feature in a variety of vibrant colours, two tone shirts and all accessorised with two tone gorgeous shoes, plaid trainers, and long, tied leather belts. Lilac was a shade used often as well as an off white-green shade.
After all this beautiful tailoring the show took a turn… for swimwear. The shorts were tiny briefs in a variety of the colours featured throughout the show and geometric patterns, mainly triangle shapes, running short side details as well as contrasted waistbands.
But in all honesty? No one was looking at the swimwear…
Enjoy!

Moda Lisboa | Katty Xiomara SS/12

This show started with cream and orange rust panelled dresses with belts tied in bows – bows and the shapes of bows featured strongly, even the hair was styled into bow shaped buns. Waterfall ruffled neck lines and pussy bow details topped rouched, cinched waists and flowing skirts as well as a few gorgeous peter pan collars. Yellow was a favourite in this show and was mixed with white, grey and stone, finally with black sheer fabrics over little yellow dresses and playsuits. There was also a white, yellow and rust print with smeared lines and dotted with circles and spots
The collection was very repetitive with the shapes but I loved all the bow details and peter pan style flaps and collars.

Moda Lisboa | Marques Almeida SS/12

The Marques Almeida collection was all acid wash, bleached denim except for a few pieces. The collection began with oversized sleeveless dresses, short at the front revealing denim shorts, all frayed and fluffy at the edges with cuffed half leg trousers beneath that seemed to hold themselves up with rouching on the leg. The collection continued with the loose fitting, sleeveless tops and t-shirt dresses as well as skirts and crop tops – most toting the mixed length hems we have seen so much of this season. White long sleeves sheer tops began to appear with opaque bibs and soft distressed fabrics, still frayed at the edges. For variation we started to see flashes of darker blue denim before the collection returned to icy blue. With cut outs on the arms and shoulders this collection looked hip and fresh. Finally we saw knotted, chunky, white knitwear jumper dresses that were long and fitted slim to the body. The last outfit featured a gorgeous full length jacket – long at the front and cropped at the back.
The collection was interesting yet a little repetitive. At the end the designer’s family gave them a standing ovation and a granny on the front row began to cry uncontrollably with pride, so being a bitch is a little hard!
