GLORIA COELHO

 

At Sao Paolo fashion week the chicest girls on and off the catwalk were adding both grace and levity to their looks by augmenting streamlined (even a touch severe) styles with flurries of feathers. Feathers decorated a few of the mod, multi-weaved, all white space-girl gear at Gloria Coelho. At the Iódice show, where the “Save the Rainforest” theme was less than well-supported by the masses of printed matter and cut plants on every seat, and the white and chocolate-colored feathers on boots and jackets. In the front row, puffs of angelic feathers floating from the capped sleeves of Maria Bonita’s black-and-white T-shirts from last season were a recurring sight. However, the look’s most beguiling presence came from Brazilian Vogue scribe Victoria Ceridono, who paired a peach-colored feathered mini with a faded denim boyfriend shirt, as if she were Jane just throwing on something of Tarzan’s before flying to her first row seat for the Erika Ikezili show—definitely a chick worth flocking together with.
