Valentim Quaresma isn’t in the business of designing jewellery: he’s in the business of creating fantasy worlds. Every runway he presents at ModaLisboa is a new expression of some rich and dark fantasy, where the borders of art and fashion aren’t so much blurred as all together smashed apart, and where jewellery becomes a form of armour. Yesterday’s fall / winter 2015 show was no exception: clutched at by talons, sheathed in metal cuffs and breast-plates and even a winged helmet, Quaresma’s models were ancient warriors – perhaps gods.
At the gallery, some highlights from the Valentim Quaresma runway in Lisbon.
