The Serbian brand brought to Moscow a perfect collection for modern women. There were relaxed fit pants suits, base shirts, menlike overcoats, but also bodycon dresses and dramatic all-black total looks. The heroine of Batakovic Belgrade is self-confident and desirable. Even relaxed fits offered by the Serbian designer look striking and feminine. Puffy jackets were accompanied by wide waist belts and shoulder-length gloves, and overcoats were showcased with high-heels. The basic color pallete and premium-grade fabrics make sure that every piece from every collection of the brand can claim the status of an impeccable timeless base.

The closing show of BRICS+ Fashion Summit was offered by Lucas Leão from Brazil. The designer is known for his skillful use of architectural shapes, which he demonstrated at the Moscow’s runway, too. His models came up the catwalk in up-to-date and minimalist garments with the dominant white and pastel hues. Lucas Leão appareled both men and women in monochrome looks, in which ingenuous and laconic silhouettes reechoed all kinds of sculptural shapes. This Brazil-based designer is a master of draperies – simple at first sight, his garments come to life as soon as the models start moving. His incredible tops that look more than artwork than clothes and the fabulous final dress, which in every respect went beyond the traditional fashion, were absolutely dazzling.
