Day 2 of Modalisboa was a mix of presentations and catwalk shows. The locations at the Parque Eduardo VII made it pretty epic. We went to almost all the shows and skipped dinner with everyone, because there was just so much work to be finished. We went to one of my go-to places here to eat chick Piri Piri instead. Enjoy the second day with us!
BREAKFAST at HOTEL IBEROSTAR
We are staying at Iberostar once again. It’s my third time here and I love it that it all feels so familiar. I have been shooting a lot of content here the past few times.
The big bed and the powerful showers are my favorite parts of the room.
Breakfast has been so nice to sit outside in the morning sun. We made it a routine to work at the breakfast table and let the coffee keep coming.
Outfit of the day was built around this Drykorn suit. You can always put me in (oversized) suits for occasions. It makes such a statement and you can twist it to the way you want with the after-styling.
As usual, I added some colors to my looks, I played with the green and purple which complemented the grey suit very well. The green actually matched the venue as well :)
AWAY to MARS
— @awaytomars —
Away to Mars was the first presentation of the day. I was not too sure what to expect. Away to Mars is an online platform that puts the power of creative to people’s hands. It is one of the biggest fashion collectives in the world! It was a true experience going through the presentation. Each model was being painted and created in real-time. You can see the way the artists use paint, spray paint, and different textures and materials to create a stunning and unique piece of art. This collection is called the Future Positivism Project.
“They launched the Future Positivism project with the intention of uniting their global community through the thinking of a bright, more correct, more just, cleaner, more ethical, more egalitarian future.”
I sense pastel pink and blues are definitely coming back this summer. Béhen’s show was beautifully composed. Each piece was incorporated with the accessories, really enhancing the outfit as a whole. The floral earrings, structured bangs, and colourful headscarves, all made this show special.
“An ode to childhood and the growing pain called love, embroidered with Swarovski crystals, drop by drop like tears of happiness by real fairies. The celebration of love, the fight of child marriage. Maybe I’ll write to you, because sometimes one doesn’t feel like it.”
Costança’s maze was so intricate and colourful. You could feel the power in her collection through both the models and the outfits. The presentation was designed through a walking maze. The models were dispersed, almost hidden in the garden. I love the pop of colour each piece had against the garden. I loved the elements of bright purple and orange.
“All of Constança’s pieces are gender neutral and ageless. They aim to highlight that her approach to creation is based on the freedom to have ideas, unconstrained by any pre-existing rules or framework and to be able to make them realities through the process of research and experimentation. “
Luis Carvalho’s collection was an excellent combination of elegant and sporty. The way the fluorescent pink slides styled with the white laced dresses, makes it look so comfortable and stylish to wear. I love the combination of neon pink, light blue, and white. You could almost feel a bright and colourful summer coming.
Clear. Positive. Bright. Fresh. The new SS21 collection bring us a new light, a new shine, new silhouette and new materials. A collection with a mix between sport and classic. Materials like linen, cotton and taffeta appear in a palette of white, ecru and navy blue in contrast to fluor pink.
DINNER at BONJARDIM
After the shows we went to Lisbon city, to be a tourist for a few minutes. As we didn’t have much time, I only showed my assistant the things I have already seen.
I brought Jamie to this restaurant for dinner that might be too touristy for some, but the chicken Piri Piri is just delicious here for a very good price. It’s actually their Piri Piri sauce that makes it super tasty!
