BRAZIL - DESIGNER VITORINO CAMPOS - PHOTOGRAPHER AGENCIA FOTOSITE
Leading London-based Brazilian designers Barbara Casasola, Lucas Nascimento
and Fernando Jorge are joined by Brazil-based Vittorino Campos and Guilherme Viera, to profile contemporary Brazillian fashion talent. The curatorial focus draws on Brazil’s modernist heritage as a source of inspiration for a small but forceful group of emerging designers. This influence translates into an aesthetic language that is minimalistic, refined and sensual.
The exhibition’s installation, inspired by Helio Oiticica’s ‘Penetrables’, provides
an eclectic, Tropicalia-tinged backdrop for the fashion on display.
