Press release: Lucas Nascimento’s Press Release Spring/Summer 2015
Lucas Nascimento’s Spring Summer 2015 collection feels like a draft of hot air, which, in its moment of arrival, reveal’s a woman’s nonchalant refinement. Complexity rises in a light aura of an extremely determined yet relaxed woman whose manifold facets are represented in the trace of Lucas Nascimento’s long – term friend, the visual artist Nina Fowler. Their aesthetic goes as far as an imaginary complicity and, for this season, all knitted jacquards are a precise recreation of the artist’s intricate and powerful pencil and chalk drawings.
The knitted jacquards are the result of a blend of silk and highly twisted fine American cotton yarn. The light touch of cotton and its versatility make the material the best choice for assuring Nina Fowler’s canvases remain with their drawing characteristics. A close – up puzzled with its abstract shadows whilst a farther away glimpse will disclose the entire artwork.
You have to move if you want to have it all.
