PFW: Hugo Costa Autumn/Winter 2017 Collection

Inspired by a Norwegian explorer.


Hugo Costa is a young Portuguese designer who debuted his first collection in 2010. His newest menswear collection presented at Paris Fashion Week was titled AMUNDSEN. The designer was inspired by reading about Roald Engelbregt Cravning Amundsen, the Norwegian adventurer who was the first one to explore both the North and the South Poles.  According to Costa himself, ”AMUNDSEN is a representative collection of the human being’s necessity to explore the unknown. Thus, it is the urgency for new experiences and adventures, metaphorically represented by territorial explorations.”

The collection is loosely based on the designer’s representation of the attire Amundsen wore during his adventures. Using layers of technical materials, Costa managed to create voluminous outfits that allow freedom of movement.
