The brightness of the carved stones and the thousand tones of the colored gems are the props that illuminate and inspire Luís Onofre’s Summer 2018 Collection. Recalling the opulence of the adornments of the Mesopotamian peoples and the grandeur of their pyramids, each shoe is made up of an unexpected succession of exotic layers.
In an excess in which the harmony is born of an apparent chaos, the collection lives of the chromatic contrasts between the clear gold and the other materials. In addition to stones, fringes, pearls and Swarovski crystals, there are also embroideries and geometric patterns. The heels remain medium for a comfortable freedom but still appear silhouettes marked by the elegance of the fine heel.
The inspiration of the colors and materials allows a huge diversity of tones to the collection: yellow, red, peach, dry green, allure blue and indigo intersect with the unifying effect of black. Chamois, colored nappa and embroidered satins are the basis of choice for sandals. With applications as profuse as elegant, the colors multiply contrasts.
Regarding bags, in micro and medium format, accompany the richness of the collection and some models are both a jewel and a safe that opens through a locking system composed of code and key.
In the men’s collection, once again the contemporary minimalism of the design contrasts with the richness of the women’s collection. In an extreme simplicity of shapes and tones, we highlight the custom finishes where skins brushed in raw tone are worked to gain new tones. Honey, beige and navy dominate the sneaker, mocassin and Oxford models.
Exotic and vibrant, this is the Spring / Summer collection.
