Call it a return to origins. A comeback to the reason why clothes were invented in the first place: helping human body to regulate its relationship with the environment. This was something Paulo Gomes believes to have been forgotten in the fashion world in which he worked for the past thirty years as producer and stylist: “After woking for so long in this industry, I realized that fashion became a huge money-making machine where new and interesting ideas don’t seem to have place anymore. So I started to wonder what could be considered luxury today for a mature consumer. I realized that people are much more nomadic, being exposed to different whether conditions more often than before. Climate changes also affected the way people relate to the wheather as you can have all four seasons in a 24 hour period of time. I started to nurture this idea that maybe the new luxury in clothing might the way you can face all these new challenges in an intelligent manner.”
