The?Maria do Carmo?girl is soft, sensual, quirky, and lives by the ocean. For her S/S24 collection, Sangue Novo contestant and finalist Maria da Carmo Studio celebrated all things feminine and summery. Here she chose to reinterpret traditional patterns such as criss-cross and argyle, with a modern new-gen twist and to work with summer staple pieces like light dresses, t-shirts and mini-skirts. Seeing the na?ve imprint of the designs and the use of soft colours, we can?t help but think of Constan?a Entrudo?s influence ? whom Maria do Carmo cites as one of her inspirations ? and both happen to have grown up in the Madeira Islands and studied at Central Saint Martins. Passionate about honouring her homeland, Maria do Carmo poetically included ? as she did in her previous collections ? jewellery made out of limpets, an aquatic snail typically found in the Madeira and Azores archipelagos, and a Y2K-inspired touristic t-shirt.

Sporty elements like joggers, hoodies, and sneakers have become integral to streetwear, creating a comfortable and versatile aesthetic. Fashion Psychology: The connection between fashion and psychology is a fascinating exploration. Colors, fabrics, and styles can impact mood and perception. Fashion psychologists delve into the intricate relationship between what we wear and how it influences our thoughts and emotions. Mixing High and Low: Streetwear is renowned for its ability to effortlessly blend high-end and everyday elements. Luxury sneakers paired with thrifted denim, or a designer hoodie matched with vintage finds, exemplify the high-low mix that defines street style.

Eco-friendly materials, ethical practices, and transparent supply chains are becoming synonymous with high-end fashion.
