It is no secret that Patricia Bonaldi is taking her place as a major international fashion designer. Her client portfolio includes names of big celebrities such as Shakira, Nicki Minaj, Sharon Stone and Gisele Bundchen. Now, Bonaldi is preparing for another challenge, in Paris.
On September 26, the Brazilian designer will show her S/S 2014/15 collection during Paris Fashion Week, at Hotel Le Bristol. Patricia Bonaldi apparel can be found in 16 countries, including Spain, England, Japan, the United States, Russia and Saudi Arabia.
Patricia Bonaldi has definitively made her mark on the international market. In July, lovely French model Constance Jablonski was seen wearing a dress by the Brazilian designer during the Watermill Center Summer Benefit charity event, which takes place every year in the Hamptons, an upscale seaside resort in New York state.
The dress is made completely of lace, but it has a slightly transparent top and black lining in the bottom. The short-sleeved dress falls just above the knee.
Brazilian designer Patricia Bonaldi has already begun to publicize the S/S 2014/15 campaign for her second label, Pat Bo. The collection is inspired by Africa and has references to the tribes, the culture and the nature in the region.
The looks feature embroidery, graphic prints, and illustrations that recall capulana fabrics, used to cover the body and head and many times tied into a skirt. The highlight is fringe placed along the hems of skirts, on sleeves and even in the middle of garments.
The campaign, starring model Ellen Rosa, was shot by Zee Nunes with styling by Yasmine Sterea.
The campaign for the S/S 2015 collection from Brazilian designer Patricia Bonaldi is already being launched. Just like the clothes, the theme of the photos was inspired by the country, featuring a quite lyrical feel.
The face of this season is Dutch model Yrme Stiekema. The campaign was shot by Zee Nunes. Styling is by Yasmine Sterea, a fashion editor at Vogue Brazil, with makeup by Henrique Martins. The collection will hit stores in August 2014.
