Luís Buchinho graduated in fashion design from Citex (currently known as Modatex), in Porto, in 1989, and started the commercialization of his homonymous brand in 1992. In 2007, he opened his first store at Rua José Falcão 122, Porto, and in 2012 inaugurated a second space at Esplanada do Castelo, also in Porto. Currently, his store is located at Rua de Sá da Bandeira, 812.
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.
A post-pandemic environment, marked in a line that is intended to be effective for the life of the eyes in everyday life: minimal silhouettes (designed with a wink to the 90’s), with a powerful and weatherproof effect. An empowered woman, ready for the next challenges — needing clothing that is as protective as it is seductive.
For FW22/23, sexy rock star glamour finds a new ally in sportswear, giving rise to inverted mixes. The color palette wants to be around cool tones, like violet and sky blue, going through a range of pure grays. Orange tones warm up and reaffirm the graphic part of the collection. The materials are light and comfortable, protective: wools and technical fabrics on the outside, creased and pleated with laser cuts for the interiors.
