Miguel Vieira Fall/Winter 2017

Miguel Vieira’s Fall/Winter effort is ethereal. Not a word used to describe menswear, but an apt one in this case. Vieira presented a wardrobe that will transfigure its wearer. No matter who this man is he will instantly be upgraded to an applauded level of sophistication and sartorial finesse. Creatively there was an interspersing of feminine and masculine. This was indicated in the lack of structure in the un-lined suits that perused the runway. The collection represented a grounded and fantasized conception of flamboyant menswear. The European tailoring and styling is an emblem of male elegance. The patterns (large checks in black, white and navy) chosen rendered the garments much more worldly. Cropped pants were a unifying touch point throughout the collection. It was a declaration of the exact kind of daring and advanced style sensibility inherent in the men who will don Vieira’s threads. Said men will surely be in fashionable company.
