Alexandra Moura brought out his latest FW15/16 looks in the recently held London Fashion Week. He has some unique concept and approach to his designing his collection which can be described in in his own words .
“And suddenly life turns inside out…and I find that the wrong side is the right side”
The collection is composed by exercises of constructing and deconstructing but also by the subtle behavior of materials, its finishings and details.
The body – the whole or partially – becomes the main stimulus for sketching and shape research.
Once again, the duality’s universe is powered by the intentional opposition of the following concepts:
Interior – exterior
Right side – wrong side
Part – whole
Assemble – disassemble
To do – to undo
To subtract – to add
The set of actions of deconstruction applied to the constructive process of the garment builds the silhouette of this collection – pause, reversal/inversion and subversion amplify the perception of construction and shape.
This is materialized in:
Asymmetries (of organic and irregular nature);
Transparencies (exposition, interior/structure visualization);
Elastics (intentional construction detail);
Inversions (right side/wrong side of fabrics)
Besides denim he uses cotton, neopren, linen, silk, fleece and microfibre.
