INTRODUCING ÂME MOI PREFALL/FALL 2016
Nestled in the beautiful countryside near Porto, are the unique headquarters of âme moi.
Alberto Gomes & Margarida Jacome, the founders of the Brand, decided to capitalise on the skills and heritage of the region. They identified craftsmen renowned for their quality work in leather & embroidery, and utilising their expertise, they embarked on the journey of creating a luxury accessories brand.
After the Brand’s success in the Portuguese market, in 2015 Alberto & Margarida decided they were ready for International expansion.
Ideas for PF/FW 2016 are drawn from a region steeped in the history of architecture. The bags are notably structured with graphic details.
The horsehair tassels in a wide range of colours, featured in the collection, were inspired by the Gomes’ sons, who are both equestrians.
Multi-coloured leather pouches showcase the traditional Manta Alentejana blanket fabric. The diamond pattern, typically found on the blankets has also been interpreted into both printed & embroidered leather.
Although much of the inspiration for the collection has its origins in classic Portuguese traditions, these ideas have been combined with functional details & hardware, to meet the needs of the modern woman.
