For A/W20 Louis has shown a capsule collection as part of the Fashion Scout- Future Collective platform at London Fashion Week.
The A/W20 collection is predominantly handmade and features a range of bohemian tunic dresses, anchored by a gladiator 'Masai bib' shape made from recycled upholstery materials.
Natural hand dyed organic silks and cottons are gathered to form the body of the dresses featuring vintage hand-sewn 'giupure' lace crochet doilies in a patchwork fashion.
Fabrics are ruched, smocked and draped to achieve volume, texture and movement for a style aesthetic, silks are french seamed .
The silhouette is floaty romantic-bohemian and the colour palette features fiesta and bright reds; forest, olive and 'Sacramento' greens; pale pink; nude; beige, soft grey and black.
Born in Luanda, Angola and moved to Brussels at the age of nine, Lisbon and Paris shortly after to finally settle in London.
This eclectic mix of cultural experiences has shaped the way Louis design garments.
Often, the creative process starts from a piece of antique lace, material or vintage garment that evolves into a feature on the feminine body, engineered on the stand and further on mixed with the juxtaposition of other materials, fabrication and processes.
Garments are hand sewn, hand dyed and designed with the highest attention to detail .
They cannot be fully replicated.
Small defects on the fabrics used are an intrinsic part of the sustainable characteristic of the materials and processes
