Miguel Vieira's ready-to-wear Spring/Summer 18 collection brings a youthful interpretation to his classic minimalist style. Known for his love of simplicity, Vieira surprises us this season by invigorating his classic lines and standard black, white and gray pallet with splashes of bright coral, shattered glass prints, cut out patterns and asymmetry.
The collection, which embodies a duality between edgy-urban attire and smart-casual weekend wear, reflects the lifestyle of a chic city dweller that escapes to the seaside on holiday. The urban aspect of the collection embraces Vieira’s traditional black and white pallet, but incorporates non-traditional aspects such as engineered black leather prints, micro-minis with structural hemlines and draped asymmetric separates that feature geometric cracked glass prints framed by black or white edges.
In contrast, Vieira’s light and playful weekend-wear feature slim trousers and crisp white open-weave minis, both paired with classic tees and button downs that wow with geometric pinstripes and pops of coral flower graphics.
Key accessories also make their presence known, first in an oversized silk pinstripe scarf that is featured exclusively in men’s wear, then again through the collection’s incorporation of a variety of belts that cinch the waist and often call the eye as a secondary focal point through their use of exaggerated scale, contrasting shape and unexpected color.
More than ever before, Vieira's collection of versatility and impeccable tailoring, takes on a clear narrative and one that we all desire to obtain as we envision ourselves in Vieira’s own Portugal, jetting from Lisbon on a weekend getaway to the relaxing seaside of the Iberian Peninsula.
