We named our Summer 2019 collection `MONCARAPACHO´ - after the village of the
same name. Rita Lino, the photographer of this look book spent her childhood in this
typical village of the Algarve's Barrocal, situated among soft hills where fig trees,
almond and pomegranate trees abound. The muse of this lookbook is Rafaela Kacunic.
Art Direction & Graphic Design 75W. Styling by Joao Melo Costa and Svenja Specht.
REALITY STUDIO x JULIA HEUER
This collection is featuring a collaboration with textile designer Julia Heuer. It resulted
in a vivid tie-dye print & a hand-painted check print. We applied the tie-dye print to a
polyester wave Plissée to enhance the bold look of the print. The check print, with its
hand painted look, was printed on a technical looking mesh.
See here the beautiful results in our Summer 2019 look book..
REALITY STUDIO x TOINO ABEL
We also teamed up with Toino Abel and designed together a small hand-woven bucket bag
based on the traditional flat-weave techinque of Toino Abel´s collection. Toino Abel is a brand
of handmade reed baskets, made with a technique that remains unchanged since time immemorial.
The dried & naturally dyed reed is woven on a loom to build a mat, which is then hand-sewn.
The inside bag is made of 100% Cotton fabric. See here below on the right side.
We hope you enjoyed this journey with us to Moncarapacho. Our special thanks goes to
Quinta da Cabrito & the Feliciano family for the great location and amazing hospitality!
