“Here and There” is the theme of last Alexandra Moura FW17 collection. A collection which takes its origins in nature.
Forever fascinated by distant cultures and identity, Alexandra Moura finds in the historical period of the Portuguese expansion a romantic heritage that distinguishes the country to this day. Traditional fabrics and prints from Timor and Indonesia are reimagined in the jacquard sweaters with a shredded effect, suggesting time and distant memories.
The rich colour palette ranges from darker tones of ochre and brown against contrasting light blues, vibrant yellow and accents of gold. Jacquard with lamé, jersey and thick wool are manipulated to create newly tweaked silhouettes combined with bold volumes for the contemporary eye.
