Along with the development of his collections, Nuno Gama often collaborates in the creation of wardrobes for dance and theatre shows and develops uniforms for various entities.
Lisbon-X is Nuno Gama’s FW22/23 collection. While the world shakes and twists, the paradise that Lisbon still is breathes with open arms, where with all the flavours, languages and colours, its new lovers, geometrically redraw the map of the city. Between the hills and the houses, you can hear the trill of guitars, but it is from this new polygon that the city emerges in its evolution of freedom, feeling and the adventure of personal growth that illuminates the universe.
These new Lisbon-X inspire the game between deformalization and the elegance of clothing, allowing it to build in contrast of shapes and volumes, enhanced by materials increasingly aware of the eternal masculine virility, ranging from the classics, such as wool and cottons, to new synthetics. The austerity of black is diluted in the sweetness of chocolate and hazelnut, in contrast to the fiery orange or the sweetness of pink.
