ROUGH CUT (NO REPORTER NARRATION) STORY: Sao Paulo Fashion Week drew to a close on Friday (April 17), lending the limelight once again to Brazil's top designers unveiling their Spring/Summer 2016 collections, after the storm created by supermodel Gisele Bundchen's retirement from the catwalk earlier in the week. Wagner Kallieno began the show with a stripped-back, minimalist collection, honing in on earthy tones, block colors and light fabrics. The designs focused on three main body lines, seeing the recurrence of slouched over-the-knee caramel-brown boots, trousers and skirts tailored to a high waist-line, and several tops or capes draped over the shoulders. Andriana Degreas added a more daring kick to the final day of show, with a monochrome display of rather more severe, provocative beachwear, slip dresses with angular cut-outs, and trousers with suspended, pointed flares. The highlights of the collection were black and white tar-like fibers draped around the models' bodies in precarious forms resembling spiders webs or reptilian skeletons.
