'SAPAL - Da mata ao mar' is inspired by the colour green, in proximity to the sea. Sage and leaf greens combine alongside the colour of the sand and the grey-blue water. Clothes for the spring, summer and early autumn - wear them on the sand, in the water or at the table. Evidence of growth and transience. Encapsulating a climate. Creating an ecosystem of dress. Exploring transitional zones.
A new way to approach clothing. Designed and made in-house — at the designer’s atelier in Anjos — combining instinct, craft and luxury materials to create original pieces to wear for years to come.
