LA CAMBRE 3 / Lucas Sponchiado

I really love his collection,and the shoes are like major.I know Lucas since many years and i am happy to present him to you ! apart of being an amazig designer he is also an amazing person ,in love with ice tea and milk!
what’s the concept behind your collection?
This year I have taken my inspiration from a woman of legend, a fairy tale and have worked on the confrontation with an image, the representation of a certain idea of good and evil.

This decision was inspired by Francis Ford Coppolas “Dracula”, which encouraged me to investigate the historical aspects of the subject, and of course my own imagination.

My imagination crystalised around the inspiring work of contemporary artists such as Le Moult, Jeff Van Tuerenhout, … These artists unveiled an imaginary world where a mysterious and powerful woman emerges

The vision of this powerful woman-creature inspired a certain replication of a certain anotomical construction expressed in the cut of the clothes, the way the fabric is rendered, the use of pleats, stiff structures, shoulder pads, bindings.. The anatomical inspiration, revealing skeletal structures, muscles and veins of the human body and imitation as pieces of armour or a carapace.

What plans you have for the future?

First i think i’m gonna do my fifth year at La Cambre. After that i would like to work for “maison de couture” to learn in the professional field ,to understand financial and commercial dimension in fashion to maybe one day start my own label.

Why womenswear?

Last year i did a menswear collection. it was interesting and make me understood that womenswear was more accurate to me.

How old are you/where are you from?

I am 22 years old.I am Italo-Belgian.I always lived in Brussels.
