With exports growing at a good pace, the footwear industry is literally in fashion. On the catwalk of Portugal Fashion, it left no one indifferent. Also noteworthy are the collections of several Portuguese designers, such as Fatima Lopes, Filipe Oliveira Batista, Luis Buchinho, Luis Onofre, Miguel Vieira or Storytailers.

Models that breathe comfort and clarity in design. Such is the proposal from Atelier do Sapato, one of the Portuguese brands of the moment, for the coming summer. In the new collection, flat and high heeled sandals mingle with men’s classic and dance shoes in a complete, balanced and exciting collection. Binding welts, metal fasteners and washed leather soles are some of the usual details from Atelier do Sapato that will stand for next year.

The new women’s collection from Dkode is inspired by a retro contemporaneity. Revisited classics are reinvented for the modern world. Natural materials contrast with hight tech details. In this collection one can find natural and technological materials, randomly combined... in a Neo Craft movement with an urban touch. This is Dkode recycling materials while searching for new textures and compositions. Vibrant colors and aged appearance materials ensure an exasperated freshness. Dkode will show for the first time at Portugal Fashion its proposals for the male audience, in an eclectic mix of casual style, without forgetting more classical models, shaped through their volume and proportion.

Always progressive, never conventional, Fly London’s Winter / Summer 2012 collection is an eclectic combination that offers models perfect for everyday life,  but also high heeled lines full of glamor and style, always keeping intact the brand’s unique  spirit. In the women’s segment, lines with modern silhouettes and distinctive shapes are associated with Disco ispired proposals with wden platforms and acrylic heels. For the male audience, Fly combines “casual looks” with styles that convey individuality and originality inspired up to classical models that are differentiated by their vintage finish.

For the warm seasons of the “one thousand and one” colors, Nobrand presents “The Peacewalker Collection.” In an irreverent combination of materials, the collection comes out naturally “native”, respecting classic American moccasins and British oxfords, reinventing them in openly boho and retro-clean trend. This collection reflects the relentless pursuit of freedom and return to Nature that summer brings after the wintry days. In a vibrant palette, the collection radiates blues, reds and oranges. Right in its second line of colors it presents their derivations into yellows and greens, while never forgetting more natural tones, which have been asserting themselves as neutral, like black, browns, grays and beiges.

For the first time on stage at Portugal Fashion, and focusing on typically Portuguese raw materials, such as cork, wood or leather, Patico’s collection for the Summer of 2012 appeals to female simplicity and comfort in a varied range of warm colors, in ambitious and bold shapes, with a mixture of irreverence and fantasy.
