Luís Buchinho - graduated in fashion design from Citex (currently known as Modatex), in Porto, in 1989 - has been a constant presence at ModaLisboa since 1991, at Portugal Fashion since 1996 and at Paris Fashion Week since 2009.
The commercialization of its homonymous brand started in 1992, in Portugal. It is currently distributed throughout the country. Luís Buchinho has participated in several fashion fairs such as Bread and Butter, Who´s Next and Gallery 2020.
In 2007, he opens his first store at Rua José Falcão 122, Porto, and in 2012 inaugurates his second space at Esplanada do Castelo, also in Porto.
Throughout his career as a designer, Luís Buchinho has been honored with several distinctions, such as the Best Female Collection award from Associação ModaLisboa in 1999, the Best Fashion Designer award from Fashion TV in 2010 and the Golden Globe for Best Fashion Designer in 2012 and 2016.
His experience as a knit designer is notorious in his work. Elaborate and original structures, graphic details and unusual games of colors and textures form a composition of dynamic silhouettes that define a cosmopolitan, charismatic and authentic look.
This season Luís Buchinho celebrates the brand 30th anniversary. On this occasion the collection references the most striking codes of the brand.
Geometries with Deco influences translated into a strong graphic component, both in silhouette and in patterns. Strong and affirmative women, sometimes androgynous, always feminine.
The silhouettes mix influences in the 20s and 80s.
The colors are dark, in a game of blacks and false blacks: bottle greens, troops, moss, marine and copper.
The materials vary between natural and synthetic, leather / faux leather, faux fur, raincoats and taffeta.
