Daniela Barros SS16 // London Fashion Week

The young, award-winning Portuguese Designer made a great statement for SS16!

With the theme of fraying being used as a trending theme this season, Daniela Barros has added this interestingly with deconstructed trousers and jackets, revealing parts of the body like shoulders as the model walks.

Known for her tailoring, Barros also reinvents the way we look at the classic denim jacket, and turns the timeless trench coat into something far more complex with layers and panels, adding masculinity to the female silhouette.

With the white of the fabric being so crisp and the depth of the blacks in this collections, it feels like the clothing is working together but almost conflicting. The collection is all about “actions and moral values” and it shows well in the use of colours and fabrics, as well as the tailoring and unstructured silhouettes.

In addition to the collection, the catwalk at the On/Off space at The Vinyl Factory in Soho fit very well. The bright strip lighting in the ceiling and plain white and grey surroundings, made the boldness of these creations stands out even more as the models walked down the room in flats that have attached fabric to them, fraying off the front of their feet.
