For inspiration, the designers stay close to home, drawing from all things Portuguese – the ocean, the landscape, the cuisine, and of course the clothing. Each item is skillfully crafted in the country, which felt the powerful effects of the recent global financial crisis.
Portugal is known for its unique history and culture, and of course its rich tradition in creating textiles. For two friends living next door to several of the country’s main textile factories, it’s no surprise that they soon were struck with the idea of starting their own menswear line. André Bastos was already successful in the industry, having opened La Paz Merchant Studio in 2004. Together with Jose Miguel de Abreu, he began working on his own in-house line, inspired by traditional Portuguese fishermen garb.
