“I guess architecture and construction will always be present in my work,” explains Brazilian designer Pedro Lourenço in the latest issue of PULP. “I’m very interested in constructing with lightness.” The designer often achieves this lightness through the use of graphic print and inspired textile combinations. Melissa Tammerijn brings to life this very lightness in selected looks by Pedro Lourenço in the corresponding pages of PULP photographed by Owen Bruce. As for the Pedro Lourenço woman, the designer insists she is contemporary and urban, “who wants high quality and a strong design point of view. She is independent, aware and confident in her sexuality.” In other words, she is Melissa Tammerijn through and through.
