31º Portugal Fashion Spring Summer 2013
Wabi Sabi collection
A 15th century Japanese vision followed by the Samurais that describes and seeks beauty that is imperfect, incomplete and impermanent. The characteristics of this aesthetic concept are asymmetry, roughness, simplicity and opposites. It is melancholy and spiritual, studying the natural growth and decay of the elements, the imperfections found in nature and art like the fingerprints left on ceramics. Being dual, Wabi – perfect, Sabi – imperfect.
