I observe the daily life. People. That's what awakens every collection inside of me.
A steady hand, careful movements. Vitorino Campos is in no hurry. He looks at the world with the same urgency of water dripping from a faucet. He scrutinizes all that surrounds him. He sews routine from end to end.
For Vitorino, fashion is a pastime.
Melissa + Vitorino Campos comes from a delicate universe, but searches to travel between different worlds.
I saw the desires of opposing women, with styles that differ one to another. The collection traces a line of desire in people that's independent of their style and how they live.
Like Pupila, the stylist's iconic bag that has now been brought to plastic.
Its size and colors make it the perfect company for work, dinner, or any party. And its thermal interior means you can use it to carry lunch, too. Inseparable company.
Its multiplicity makes Pupila associable with various styles, numerous personalities.
The sharpened eye of Vitorino Campos has made him known as one of his generation's best stylists. His youth doesn't limit his resumé, and at 16 he was emancipated to open his first store. Currently, in addition to his own brand, he also gives life to designs of the Brazilian brand Animale.
A chat with the fashion designer makes you understand that it's fashion, actually, that makes choices. It adopted him long before he became aware that the choice had been made for him.
That's why Vitorino keeps his gaze steady. Focused on inspiration and expiration, yin and yang. The old and the new.
The classic Flox got a brand new reshaping, while Seduction brings Vitorino’s signature sewing as a detail.
I went to see Melissa's production process. It's a very painstaking process, full of love.
Vitorino listened to the machines rumbling. And heard violins.
The work of the needles, as they dance and model. The blocks of steel making the shoe molds. That is the great meeting between us.
We've created a work of love. A collab that's based on profound observation. And full of truth.
