Since the beginning of times, we have always drawn inspiration from nature in some way, shape or form. Our modern world has encouraged us to become more disconnected from it. Grounded FW 20/21 is a manifesto on connecting with the earth. Exploring the concept of grounding, Carolina Machado is inspired by nature’s shapes, earthy colors and grounded forms. Sustainability equates to timeless, this season aims to effortlessness and longevity, alongside with multipurpose pieces. Carolina’s signature styles are always present, paying a nature’s homage for the contemporary woman.
