Julio Torcato unveiled his Fall/Winter 2015 collection during PortugalFashion. The collection deals with duality and duplicity, us and them, with the differences approaching like energy (positive/negative) and associating apparently opposing concepts: light/dark, tradition/modernity, classical/street.
The materials, shapes and textures are the key concept of the collection: low waisted pants and long jackets, synthetic leather, velvet, leather, 100% wool, stripes and tartans provide contemporary silhouettes and reinforce the look of the collection.
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.
