In the French capital, Felipe Oliveira Baptista presented “The Sheltering Sky”, a journey where military clothing earns feminine and sensual contours.

An imaginary journey through the ages, continents, music and literature inspired Felipe Oliveira Baptista to create a functional wardrobe, but feminine at the same time, presented in the Prêt-à-Porter Week, in Paris.

Dresses and monochromatic coordinated pant-jacket, in grey, khaki, mint and blue,  full of pockets and belts creating different volumes, paraded on Mezzanine Halle Freyssinet catwalk, in this «trip a little bit imaginary», according to the designer, that preserves the reference of military wardrobe  rigor «but with a softer, perhaps more sensual side», he explains.

Cotton is the basis of the collection, sometimes mixed with silk – as in the first coats – and jacquards are made of cotton, silk and lurex. «I wanted it to be very natural», he adds.

A proof that dichotomy is still very present in the designer’s work. «I find it interesting creating dialogues between opposite things», says Felipe Oliveira Baptista, who still believes that this collection shows a certain evolution in his career.

«Maybe it’s about put fewer ideas in looks and make a more confident aesthetics. It’s probably my natural reaction to an overdose of information», he points out. «It’s something I look for me, something simpler, more essential, but at the same time, rich and new».

A search for a balance that gathers design and “wearability”. «What increasingly has interested me is this balance between new ideas and also that clothes can be attractive to people, because that’s also important nowadays», summarizes Felipe Oliveira Baptista.
