Devoting collections to a single craft seems to have become somewhat of a trend for young London designers. There’s Ashish and his sequins. Holly Fulton and her embellishment. Now making knitwear his signature and joining the likes of its connoisseurs Mark Fast and Louise Goldin, is Brazilian born, London based Lucas Nascimento. Graduating in 2008 from LCF, Nascimento has spent the last three seasons showing at Rio Fashion Week and developing a brand which views the female body as a sculptural form.
His latest offering of ‘cocoon knitted garments’ consists mainly of skirts with eye popping, art deco combinations of colour. However, he also creates futuristic looking jackets and trousers, switching to block colour, which befits the bulkier silhouettes – a stand out look in the form of an glistening blue top and matching skinny trousers.
