Pier Maua in downtown Rio de Janeiro is hosting the F/W 2014 edition of Fashion Rio from November 6 to 9. The second day of the event included fashion shows by four labels: Sacada, Oh, Boy!, Iodice and Coca Cola Jeans.
Check out the shows:
Designer Beti Speiski travelled to India to create Sacada’s F/W 2014 collection. It features a sophisticated new take on sportswear. References to the country can mostly be found in prints and embroidery, with Indian motifs. The highlight is patchwork done by hand. Sheath dresses and pencil skirts are fitted, while jumpsuits and coats are quite baggy. Transparent fabrics, such as organza, were paired with heavy materials, like jacquard. There is a preponderance of reddish tones.
Designer Simone Nunes brought her creations for next winter, inspired by the post-punk movement of the 1990s and by the lifestyle of Russian ballerinas, to the runway. The cotton jersey trousers used so much for dance practice were a highlight. Looks with jeans featured bugle bead embroidery. Among items are jackets, ribbed dresses, tops and skirts inspired by tutus. The color portfolio includes pink, blue, yellow, burgundy and nude tones. Materials used are: jeans, cotton jersey, knit and organza.
The label’s theme for F/W 2014 is based on modern huntresses. Items make reference to garments used on safaris, with a form-fitting silhouette, a comfortable cut and materials such as serge, chamois and neoprene. Short skirts are matched with baggy tops. Many of the garments are done using matelassé. Short dresses have long sleeves. Prints include animal print, drawings of roosters and abstract illustrations. Ochre and orange tones stand out.
Coca Cola Jeans
Filling the runway with Brazilian actors (Bruna Marquezine, Marlon Teixeira, Isabelle Drummond and Kayky Brito), the brand ended the second day of Fashion Rio. The collection is inspired by the world of soccer and especially by World Cup 2014. The show opened with an outfit comprised of a monochromatic white blouse, shorts and jacket. Garments have a baggy cut and shoulders are quite wide. Prints include lettering. The color portfolio goes for green, yellow, blue, black, white and red.

Pier Maua is hosting the F/W 2014 edition of Fashion Rio from November 6 to 9. The first day of the event included runway shows by three labels: Alessa, Victor Dzenk and Patricia Viera.
Inspired by modern architecture and the work of Brazilian architect Paulo Mendes da Rocha, Alessa has reinvented itself, showing a more sober collection than usual. The collection features baggy looks and light and flowing fabrics. Straight-cut tweed blazers are oftentimes paired with belts accentuating the waist. Neoprene joined with classic tailoring gives rise to structured garments. Trousers are straight-legged and skirts are short. Prints in black and white show various works of architecture. Materials used are chiffon, organza, jacquard, neoprene and satin. Black, white and grey predominate.
After a four year hiatus from Fashion Rio, Victor Dzenk brought looks inspired by Marrakesh, Morocco to the runway. The designer explored extremely elaborate items, full of embroidery, stone appliqués and bugle beads. The show began with a cotton jersey jumpsuit, with embroidery and transparency on the sides. Kaftans are quite flowy and are even worn by the men. Sleeves and hems feature fringe and pendants. Dresses come in various lengths, from long to midi. Baggy coats, tight blazers and embroidered shirts are suggested for men. Animal prints are highlighted. The color portfolio contains black, red and nude tones.
Patricia Viera’s collection is based on the city of Santa Fe, in the United States. The theme mostly explores the religiosity of the people living there. Leather, the brand’s trademark, features prints, with lace, fringe and textures applied to it. Pencil skirts are matched with loose tops. Most of the collection is form-fitting with an accentuated waist. Long dresses have flowing skirts. Trousers are tight and some are full of cutouts. Terra cotta tones, like orange and caramel, are quite prevalent. Prints include images of landscapes, flowers and ethnic patterns, in a partnership with graffiti artist Bruno Bogossian and fine artist Klaucia Badaro.

In June, Brazilian designer Alessa Migani inaugurated her first concept store, at the Leblon Shopping Center, in Rio de Janeiro. The space was designed by architect Ricardo Campos and is inspired by art galleries.
The location covers 40 m² and was established as a large white cube. The mannequins appear to float through the store, displaying the designer’s colorful and print dresses.
Curator Silvia Cintra was invited to set up the Savana exhibition for the inauguration, using the collection shown at the last Fashion Rio show. The models wore prints of powerful felines, like lions and tigers. Images were projected on the walls of the store showing the designer’s career path and the 10 years of the brand.
