Many of you emailed me about the shows in Brazil, but I did not request credentials to cover the shows in Rio and São Paulo this season since my previous requests for credentials were denied for two seasons in a row. I did, however, catch up on all the shows in Rio this past weekend through FFW, and if I had to pick one show for you to watch it would have to be knitwear designer Lucas Nascimento's fall/ winter 2011 collection.
Lucas may just be the most talented and interesting new designer working in Brazil right now. His debut at Fashion Rio last season was one of my five favorite shows in Brazil for spring/ summer 2011, and his fall/ winter 2011 collection shown in Rio this weekend certainly did not disappoint.
PS- Keep in mind that is all knitwear.
