Alexandra Moura presented her Fall Winter 2017.18 collection during the ongoing London Fashion Week. Named Here and There, the collection is inspired by the Portuguese empire in the XVIII century, and its presence in East Timor, reaching up to Indonesia.
Forever fascinated by distant cultures and identity, Alexandra Moura finds in the historical period of the Portuguese expansion a romantic heritage that distinguishes the country to this day. Traditional fabrics and prints from Timor and Indonesia are reimagined in the jacquard sweaters with a shredded effect, suggesting time and distant memories. The signature ‘deconstruction’ of Moura’s contemporary pieces borrows subtle details from ethnic clothing and European romanticism. – from Alexandra Moura
