Hugo Costapresented his Fall/Winter 2015 collection during PortugalFashion. This collection found inspiration in the Tibetan nomads’ garments. Exposed to harsh climates, these people were forced to reinvent the use of clothing. The collection is built around this theme, combined with influences from classic clothing through the shapes and materials.
Coats with classic structures and exaggerated volumes take on other roles and features, creating the illusion that they were designed specifically for this new role, abandoning their conventional use as a shelter.
In total, Sónar 2017 will feature more than 140 performances across 9 stages, including brand new shows from Justice, Arca (live) & Jesse Kanda (av), Soulwax, DJ Shadow, Nicolas Jaar, Moderat, Eric Prydz, De La Soul, Anderson.
“Essentials is the perfect blend of product and culture from a brand like Converse. Focussed around classic sportswear items, redefined for streetwear….it mirrors the story of Converse as a brand, born in sport, raised by the streets.”
For the Fall/Winter 2017 collection, Gildas Loaëc and Masaya Kuroki, co-founders and artistic directors of Maison Kitsuné, drew their inspiration from American pop culture and the aesthetic and creative energie of New York born, Paris based, artist William Klein.
