' ALGA '

I and Thou proposes discovering moments before Carla Pontes’ presentation of ‘ALGA’ collection. Trying to capture the energy of a constantly changing space the focus is on gestures and reactions of those who inhabit it, translating into images the world of relationships that Martin Buber describes in Ich und Du (I and Thou). Alga – I and Thou is the humanization of a moment where everyone seeks for the object’s perfection.

‘ ALGA ’

A delicate collection, inspired by the lightness of algae on water streams. The mild dance of these elements on the river banks evokes the smooth movements of fragile, slippery bodies. Over undulating sounds, they dance along, wrapped on dropped, clean and quite delicate dresses. These are objects that escaped tailoring to become deconstructed and mixed up with a more contemporary language, receiving refined details with raw cuts and sporty seams.
Materials are composed by velvet touch textures like peach skin and cupro, optical effects from overlapping nets, and stripped effects from rugged double face fabrics. The color palette focus on neutral shades of nude, grey and navy, only opposed by yves klein blue.

Para o Verão 2016, Carla Pontes apresenta ‘ALGA‘, uma coleção delicada, inspirada pela leveza das algas de correntes de rio. A leve dança destes elementos nas margens remete para movimentos suaves de corpos frágeis e escorregadios. Sob sons ondulantes, também eles dançam cobertos por vestidos pingados, depurados e bem delicados. São peças que fugiram da alfaiataria para se desconstruir e misturar com uma linguagem mais contemporânea, onde assumem detalhes refinados conjugados com cortes em fio e costuras desportivas.
Os materiais reúnem toques aveludados entre a pele de pêssego e o cupro, efeitos óticos de sobreposições de redes e efeitos riscados em duplas faces rugosas. As cores centram-se em tons neutros de nude, cinza e marinhos, quebrados apenas pelo yves klein blue.
