EXOTIC + INNOVATIVE
New York: C/R 12 marked wunderkind designer Pedro Lourenço’s most wearable collection to date; the 21 year-old Brazilian, who first captured the fashion world’s attention with magnificently tailored leather and tulle pieces, incorporated silks, prints and patterns into the mix this season. The designer commissioned fellow Brazilian and artist Lelli de Orleans e Bragança to create a range of tropical palm tree and bird paintings, which he printed onto jersey tops and silk shifts, and a series of architectural sheaths and woven separates were decorated with an embroidered clover pattern. While Lourenço’s signature leather garments were not absent, a batch of magnetized convertible shifts that unzipped and flapped open to reveal printed linings was perhaps his most impressive offering this time. –Whitney Kessler
