The capsule collection has as inspiration the "Manifesto Antropófago", written by Oswald de Andrade, published in May 1928.
Manifesto Antropofágico, or Antropófago, reveals in his metaphorical text the need to recover the brazilian primitive cultures, and the care that must exist with excessive absorption (cultural cannibalism) from outside elements. The modernity and industrialization should not be ignored, but the real national identity should prevail.
The Manifesto was a milestone in modernism, as it highlighted the creation and Brazilian artistic production. This is how the silhouette created in Pindorama collection chosen to highlight the elliptical and deconstructed shapes in coats and jackets, urban symbols of social dynamism, chosen as the main point of focus and contrast. The jackets are enriched with many techniques, like macramé, crochet, circular nodes, knitting, and others.
The textiles like linen, viscose, cotton, jute, lace and muslin, create contrast and textures mix. The color cards starts in shades of off white and then remains in brown tones, turquoise and coral.
The character created by Pindorama has a multi-regional personality. From south to north, carries the true brazilian culture, not tied to any specific region, but coming up with a sense of nationality.
"We will only be civilized, in relation to existing civilizations, the day we create the ideal, the brazilian orientation. Then we pass the mimicry to stage of creation. And then we will be universal, because national. "- Oswald de Andrade
