Feet remained very close to the ground in footwear proposals presented in Portugal Fashion with masculine forms also dominating women’s collections.
In J. Reinaldo, the classics were revisited, with contrasts between light/opaque, textured/smooth and light/dark defining what men will wear this fall and winter. Male inspiration has also been extended to Silvia Rebatto’s collection, dominated by a black and white androgynous look, with less rounded shapes than in previous seasons, in contrast with black, brown and red wedge-heels boots with buckles.
Fly London men’s proposals were highlighted by suede or leather ankle boots with lateral elastics bands and lace and buckled shoes in shades of green, while women’s proposals were marked by medium heel buckled boots as well as boots with plaid fabrics.
Androgyny reached its splendour in Alexandra Moura’s collection for Goldmud, intermingling classic details with more sporty ones, resulting in sophisticated, urban and contemporary options.
Dkode by Aleksandar Protic “pós-utopia” brought, for both sexes, ankle boots with laces, in which were combined different materials and where blacks, greys, reds and browns reigned.
“Hobo Collection” rose into the catwalk by “Nobrand’s feet” that «transformed the idea of the typical vagrant in a new style approach, admittedly casual, giving it a touch of class and originality», explains the brand.
Luís Onofre – the only one with an individual fashion show – surprised with a versatile collection where sneakers were the big news. «Sneakers overall aspect is quite simple, but applications are the important detail, that can be removable or not», explains the designer. Moreover, «the whole collection is versatile in all aspects: heels, shapes, more casual shoes or boots, in conjunction with simple, basic materials and neutral colours, such as pale pink and salmon pink, until bordeaux or green», adds Luís Onofre, who also presented designs with rose gold applications.
