SALVAJE SILVESTRE /fw17/ is inspired by the rebirth of handcrafts, as a return to our origin and a recconection to the human essense.
Deconstructing the body, the uniforms flow through it, imprinting it and taking a new sense. The collection is coloured with the use of organic waste, having as a result, a worn out palette, with stresses as vibrating traces. Based on the human principles of work, collaboration, occupation and effort, the embroideries trace this new construction of the body.
Craftivism is a social process of collective empowerment, action, expression and negotiation that inspired us because we think that fashion should not be thought as an ostentation frivolity and a leisure activity. Fashion has skills to empower people to be themselves, to show off their unique beauty and to use their influence to empower change in the world.
