CORPO is the theme of Carla Pontes' 13th collection.
Influenced by the universe of drawings of the Austrian artist Egon Schiele (1890-1918), it explores the human body as an expression, mutation and movement. The idea of the individual body, fragile and strong, elastic and stained, marked, is reinforced in the fabrics’ choice, transformed as an interpretation of stretch marks and scars. Therefore, we find elastic and textured knits, among strong colours and plastic applications influenced by Schiele’s paintings.
CORPO is a slow fashion collection that responds to the new reality of the seasons mixed throughout the year. Timeless pieces that follow us with time, connect all seasons, all concepts, all moods. Elements that are summer and winter, that come with the freshness of spring and go back with the fall of autumn leaves. Exploring different influences, Carla Pontes refines the versatile language of her collections and brings to the urban, frenetic context,
the organic volumes and the subtle details that define the brand's contemporary aesthetics. A collection of versatile pieces, adjustable strips, square armholes and unusual buttonings come to build increasingly personal looks that will reinforce the wearer's identity.
