Becoming a physical representation of the blog, Beyond Fabric brings to life my own vision of menswear. In tune with the blog's universe and aesthetic,
Beyond Fabric aims to materialize distinct garments that earned their place within my eclectic, european-rooted style, always keeping quality and authenticity in mind.
Proud of its cultural heritage, all garments are produced in Portugal, making use of its experienced and refined industry to deliver the highest quality. This unusual mix between
heritage and an ever evolving sense of style, results in a unique selection of garments that perfectly blends both tradition and current trends.
The first deliveries are a perfect example: the century-old portuguese fur collared capes, originally worn by shepherds in Alentejo, are now presented with an exclusive tailored fit, making them an updated statement piece for cold winter days. With focus on authenticity and tradition, the original design as well as craftsmanship techniques and materials prevail: from Burel, a unique waterproof and windproof wool fabric produced only in Portugal, to the contrast inner checked linnings and the genuine mutton fur collars.
Fuss is a project that results from two friend's shared love for fine everyday garments and their willingness to bring to life. An uncanny duo comprised by an
architect (Nuno Alves de Carvalho) and former civil engineer turned menswear blogger (Miguel Amaral Vieira), aim to deliver an original array of capsule collections suitable for anyone,
anytime, anywhere. Fuss is about feeling good about yourself and what you're wearing, focusing on you alone while leaving labels and third parties behind.
Merging together different background influences and a common vision for the future, Fuss's inspiration comes from our everyday experiences and surrounding environments.
