Lucas Nascimento AW 12

Design background: "Graduating in 2008 from London College of Fashion, Nascimento has spent the last three seasons showing at Rio Fashion Week." Design signatures: “I like to create silhouettes that are not typical of knitwear, using knit unexpectedly through careful yarn consideration and solid research. I am interested in the geometric and textural aspects of knitwear. My pieces are a take on the classic cocooning, protective knit, but with a twist - either in yarn or structure.” (London Fashion Week.co.uk)

The part to having a studio that I truly love is the sheer creativity that you become emersed in, over the past few weeks I could hear the constant sound of knitting machines hard at work in the studio's above mine, and so it came as quite a surprise when I finally saw the imaculate constructed garments created by Lucas Nascimento for his AW 12 collection, now a BFC NEWGEN designer sponsored by Topshop he had his first exhibition to be shown at Somerset House in the East Wing, Ground Floor. Unfortunately I was working that day and so my spectacular assistants were able to document the event, below are some photo's taken by Erika Kishiku and Emma Fischer.

The clothes look immaculately knitted with graffiti inspired prints and graphics however the most exciting thing of all is the metalic glittery astro turf green knit dresses and jumpers.... I am seriously pushing for one of these in a mans style and shape, after all I do love that shade of green!
