We had been meaning to write this post for a while and kept delaying it. But now with the winter just around the corner and the weather getting colder, it is the perfect time to remember Manos´ Winter14 collection show at Moweek on March 29th . MoWeek is one of the leading fashion events in Uruguay and it takes place every year in two editions : Winter and Summer .
The starting point of the collection are the lush textures, wool´s bouclés, boiled wool and mohair are the base where vibrant colors are displayed mixed with ethnic-inspired embroidery , tassels and fringe.
The silhouettes are based on four basic shapes; the crew neck sweater, the long Jacket, short jacket and the poncho, in which motifs of intarsia , Jacquard and stripes are injected .
The colors are an unexpected combination of earthy and basics colors like raw white, burgundy, black , teal and navy, mixed with fluo colors or soft pastels.
The idea is to emphasize the versatility of wool showing casual and formal looks . We choose to end the show with our new Organic line. This line is created with organic merino wool hand spun yarn in its natural color. Creating timeless pieces like shawls, triangles, blankets and sweaters using traditional knitting and weaving techniques.
We want to specially thank Lana Sur for giving us the wool tops used to decorate the setting. We also want to thank Mamut for the footwear and Magma for the additional clothing.
