At the most recent Lisbon Fashion Week, called Moda Lisboa, menswear designer Ricardo Andrez presented his 2012 spring/summer collection “Lava.”
Ricardo was born and raised in Oporto, Portugal, where he studied at the local School of Textiles and Design, Citex.
He launched his epynomous labe in 2006 as he has reinterpreted sportswear and steetwear into structured form.
When Ricardo ponders the meaning of menswear, he envisions images about the human body.
“Lava” is an interplay of athletic and street wear, a juxtaposition between shine and matted prints, asymetry and parallels, and covering versus exposure.
