José Castro foi uma das grandes sensações da Pasarela Cibeles que decorreu entre 18 e 23 de Setembro de 2011 em Madrid. Este criador nascido na Galiza optou por uma colecção com muito brilho e com muita brincadeira à mistura, usando objectos comuns para fazer uma colecção elegante e extremanente glamorosa. Das calças pintadas com tinta dourada e quebradiça à utilização de colares e adereços vários tudo valeu para apresentar uma das colecções mais sensacionais em passerele.
Para além de um casaco feito com inúmeros óculos pendurados ou um vestido feito com alarmes, a peça que mais se destacou na apresentação da sua colecção Primavera-Verão 2010 foi sem dúvida este casaco de toureiro com imensas pérolas. Perante esta sua criação, não admira assim que muitos, embevecido, lhe chamassem o novo Lacroix depois do desfile.
Depois de uma passagem por Paris onde já apresentou as suas coleções, este espanhol foi também responsável pelas colecções da marca catalã Desigual. Sem presença em Portugal que se conheça, Jose Castro afirma que gostaria de poder apresentar as suas colecções em Portugal, pelo que aqui fica a sugestão para que se possa apreciar de perto a criatividade de Castro.
Jose Castro tem estado afastado das passerelles da Cibes Madrid Fashion Week nas últimas duas edições. Fica aqui a promessa de um texto a dar conta dos novos trabalhos que anda a desenvolver.
Fashion shows are there to see the latest creations by the world's top designers. But on the front row and around there is always an interesting array of people dressed up for the occasion. Here's some pics taken at the Autumn/Winter 2011/12 in March at the Paris Fashion Week
He was the boy with the coolest look and attitude at the Manish Arora fashion show and he was nice enough to let me have his picture taken.
This Japanese had the perfect shoes by Prada, the must have of this spring/summer and a great snake skin coat with a great texture. The picture was taken outside the fashion show by Felipe Oliveira Baptista, a Portuguese designer living in Paris and the new creative director of Lacote.
Loved this haircut seen at the backstage of Portuguese Fashion Designer Fátima Lopes.
Dandies are back in force, particularly in London. Don't know whether this was the case but it was nice to see this gentleman in full attire. Photo taken at the fashion show by the Portuguese designer Luis Buchinho.
Great look, with hat and everything. I would perhaps replace the All Star sneakers by something cooler, like a pair of Walker hightops by Marc Jacons or some cherry velvet Doc Martens. Front row at the fashion show by the Portuguese designer Luis Buchinho.
He is someone famous in France, but I forgot his name. But the look was cool. Photo taken at the fashion show by the Portuguese designer Fátima Lopes.
This transvertite hasn't missed the last two fashion shows by Luis Buchinho in Paris. This time without wig.
The Japanese are everywhere with their cameras and never miss a bit. Photo taken at the fashion show by the Portuguese designer Felipe Oliveira Baptista
After the fashion show by Manish Arora these two will probably take to the The Face parties, new romantic revival parties hosted by Visage's Steve Strange in London,
I came across this lady for four days and I was always astonished by her daring looks. Photo taken at the fashion show by the Indian designer Manish Arora, the new creative director of Paco Rabane. After his show some claimed Manish could be the new Galliano.
She's probably American, and once again I would probably dump the boring All Stars.
No, as in No Comments. I forgot to ask what statement did he intend to make with that oufit.
Great shoes with gold aaplications and great fur coat. Front row at the Manish Arora fashion show.
The always elegant Jivi, from India and a fabulous fashion photographer from Bulgaria. Outside the show by Manish Arora.
The cool crowd outside the show by Spanish designer Amaya Arzuaga at the Grand Palais. Loved this girl's coat.
Lisalla Montenegro, also good at modeling panties...
This photo shoot that Brazilian model (YES, ANOTHER ONE!) Lisalla Montenegro did for the Freemans catalog (you remember Freemans, right?) reminds me of the days back when you could look at chicks in their bras in the Sears catalog. Quite a bit sexier than that, of course, but that’s what it reminds me of. Of course, like 90% of you have no freaking idea what I am talking about. “Sears? Had a catalog? With chicks wearing bras?” Yes, yes, and yes. It was quite an existence I led back then.
