At London Fashion Week The Daily, Susanna Lau pointed out: “It is not a true reflection on the Designer Showrooms if there isn’t any innovative knitwear, so I picked out this cut-out top and skirt by Portuguese designer Susana Bettencourt. Known for translating the craft of bobbin lace into digital design.” This SS17 FLASHBACK collection adapts texture and color manipulated summer childhood memories into intricate designs. Inspired by Verne Panton graphic esthetic, the organic easy-to-wear cut out shapes contrast with the statement strong color stripes. Imagine a collage of overlapping intersections of happy feelings, now with the filter of Susana Bettencourt’s fresh approach to digital striking jacquard patterns and colors, it is wonderland.
