a walk on the sunny side


Last week I took a walk on the sunny side of Brazilian
everyday fashion through the stunning summer outfits
designed by NIca Kessler, a young yet experienced
Brazilian designer who came to show the most confident
and tasteful spring/summer 2013 collection on 
the Rio fashion runways.



Nica studied at London's Saint Martins, at the Escuela
Superior de Diseño Moda Felicidad Duce in Barcelona
and took an Industrial Design course at PUC in Rio
learning how to control the whole production process,
that's why her detail-focused, essentially feminine
collection has been carried out successfully.



Cheerful and sophisticated, the collection shows simple
fluid shapes and cutouts with breathtaking still life 
floral prints, short and mid-length dresses in lace,
silk and gauze with polka dots, embroideries and
details inspired by 'Vista Alegre' fine china (a
traditional Portuguese porcelain) in a fresh 
and extremely charming assemblage.

As the designer's website reads, Nica's woman is
”...funky, young (in character), sensual, romantic and
elegant but without losing the urban climate of the
woman who works, who is sophisticated while having 

 personality.” Definitely Nica Kessler's idea of fashion
sings out loud with its own voice, therefore giving
voice to those who wear it. Bravissima!
