Editor’s Notes: Now in its third year, Porto-based brand Litoral continues to channel coastal vibes for FW 2018 with its latest collection. Titled “Discoverers of Tomorrow”, this season’s drop draws inspiration from the ‘90s while remaining committed to the brand’s ethos of championing high-quality Portuguese craftsmanship.
The collection introduces a range of garments that are classic yet unique, with a lot of love and attention given to their fits, fabrics, and fabrication. The jerseys, for example, are made from organic cotton and the knit crewneck is knitted with a recycled yarn. Harking back to the brand's coastal roots, earthy tones and navies dominate the range while a series of plaid shirts bring a pop of pattern and pay tribute to Portugal’s seafaring past.
As with previous collections, all of Litoral’s threads are proudly crafted by local suppliers and manufacturers, ensuring that the entire production process reflects the brand’s conscious leanings.
