For Fall/Winter 18’ Carlos Gil explores the concept of the city that never sleeps where the artificial lights create all kinds of contrasts.
The narrative of the collection follows the idea of the modern cosmopolitan women who search for a look that is both edgy and versatile. Her signature image easily adapts to every hour of every day. Unexpected details inspired by the 70’s & 80’s and by the Disco concept, makes the looks feel both elegant and urban. The aesthetics is cohesive with the brand’s signature and remains sophisticated with a sporty touch, making the pieces a perfect match for the daily life in the city.
The colour pallet consists of two groups of colours, one of warmer tones and another of darker shades, dictating the tone and pace of the collection. A striped print appears as the graphic element of the collection and becomes one of the main keys of the narrative.
Inspired by the light trails, the print brings out the dynamic of the silhouette that even though may seem quite “strict” exudes movement provided by pleats and vibrant colour schemes. Straight to the point, modern, practical and fashionable could describe “Carlos Gil’s Woman” but, what defines her is being “ready-to-go” every hour, every day.
