Lucas Nascimento is a London-based designer who graduated from the London College of Fashion in 2008. Before he launched his own label he collaborated with Giles Deacon, Luella Bartley and Jonathan Saunders.
Lucas has been fascinated with the art of knitting since his mother taught him to knit when he was a boy. Since then he gained a lot of experience and developed really interesting and innovative knitting techniques.
His new Spring/Summer 2012 collection is inspired by painter Agnes Martin. Lucas used a special cord weaving technique that makes his knitted pieces look sleek and super stylish. I love the fitted jackets, peplum skirts and dresses, tailored trousers but the mullet-style dress is my favourite part of the collection.
I think it's really hard to make knitwear look exciting and light but Lucas definitely managed to achieve that! A great new name to keep an eye on! By the way, am I the only way who doesn't get the model's weird posing!?
