Spring Summer 2016
Ricardo Andrez took the concept of transparency to a broader perspective considering 'transparance as a condition'.
Transparence is everywhere and nowhere. As a condition, it is made apparent through (physical) natural elements and man-made materials .
Some people are characterized as being 'transparent' to the extent that we believe we 'see through' them.
The concept of transparency expressed throughout the whole collection from the choice of materials to silhouettes. Using sheer fabrics in contrast with heavy ones he plays with traditional clothing by deconstructing them and creating new shapes.
He presented looks with mesh materials, transparent plastic overcoats or crop tops exposing midriffs. He plays with garments that hide or reveal the person underneath the clothing.
