For his first resort offering, Pedro Lourenço stuck to his signatures — vertical silhouettes, a graphic sensibility — while continuing to push himself on the real-world commercial side. “Yes, each season is becoming more wearable,” said Lourenço. “I still want to do a strong image, but I also have the responsibility to sell product.” So his collection put the spotlight on rather simple silhouettes: tanks, T-shirts, shift and sheath dresses kicked up a notch with interesting details (thick yarns woven into tweeds or magnet hardware) and prints, the latter done in collaboration with Rio de Janeiro artist Lelli de Orleans e Bragança. Her vivid paintings of macaws and toucans on color-blocked dresses and easy tops were highlights, while her palm tree-landscapes added an arty edge to zip-up dresses and Lourenço’s swimwear debut.
