I love the clean crisp lines and graffiti-like graphics in Lucas Nascimento’s FW12 collection. One of my favorite things in fashion (and life, actually) is taking two things that don’t necessarily belong together and fusing them into something that works. I think there’s a word for that, but I haven’t had coffee yet so it’s not coming to me… sort of like the opposite of cognitive dissonance… Anyway, in my mind graffiti and couture are a mismatch made in design heaven. Love it.
I’m running late, so be sure to stop his site for more great looks. About Lucas:
