Rita Carvalho fall/winter 2017_18 "Nope!" collection.
A collection presented via the "Sangue Novo" platform at Moda Lisboa "Boundless" edition. "This collection represents the outside materials and the way they stuck us as well as the desperate search for comfort. The external materials and the discomfort they cause are represented by manipulations and elements that create plasticity. The oversized silhouette that suddenly tightens creates dynamic between needing space and feeling stucked. Nope! has a feminine easy-going look."
