FARFETCH celebrates Pride with a selection of LGBTQIA+ designers

Look of Alexandre Herchcovitch's latest collection (FARFETCH Disclosure)

Those who love fashion understand the potential it has in expressing individuality and recognize the value of clothing, footwear, and accessories in making a statement about who they are through their outfit. Attentive to trends and the philosophy behind their favorite brands, proud fashionistas fill their wardrobes with creations designed to be different.

Recognizing that fashion is a global community of diverse and talented individuals, FARFETCH, the number one destination for modern luxury, knows that positive changes are necessary to increase diversity and ensure inclusion for everyone in this world full of creativity. Giving visibility to the art brought to clothing by hundreds of LGBTQIA+ designers is more than relevant.

With this in mind, the platform has brought together the inspiring stories of four Latinx designers who take pride in their identity and bring their unique touch to pieces ready to please different bodies out there.

Aquazzura - One of Edgardo Osorio's two loves.

Edgardo Osorio, a Colombian designer raised between Miami and London, recently married Italian Ricardo D'Almeida, with whom he founded the brand Aquazzura. He has an innovative vision of what luxury footwear should be: craftsmanship and elegance complemented by maximum comfort.

At Aquazzura, he enjoys experimenting with the emblem of femininity, high-heeled sneakers, as well as low shoes that stand out for their elegant and original details. Moreover, Edgardo is recognized for breaking the paradigms of heels, suggesting that their use should be normalized among men as well.

Among the exclusive Aquazzura pieces available at FARFETCH, the standout items are the Purist sneakers with a 105mm green heel and the long chelsea boots with a 50mm heel and embossed crocodile skin effect.

Alexandre Herchcovitch - A subversive aesthetic.

Provocative codes, questioning silhouettes, and collections that left their mark on the Brazilian and global fashion scene. With a career spanning over 30 years, the São Paulo-based designer graduated from the first fashion course in Brazil. Since then, there have been many moments that defined Brazilian street style, with releases and fashion shows that set and questioned trends.

Herchcovitch;Alexandre's latest collection celebrates the designer's return as the creative director of the label and is filled with symbols and meanings that have marked his career over these three decades. The traditional skull appears in accessories and clothing, such as the A;H x NART skeleton ring and the Jacquard jacket. Luxury materials also characterize the collection, with the jacket and checked pants being excellent examples of the combination of cashmere and silk.

The collection is exclusively available at FARFETCH.

Haider Ackermann - Beloved by Karl Lagerfeld.

Haider Ackermann (FARFETCH Disclosure)

Proud to have been born in Colombia in 1971, Haider Ackermann grew up under the care of a French couple who adopted him, making his story one of the most unique among designers willing to capture in their work everything they have seen and experienced from one continent to another.

Among the men's pieces that attract the designer, who graduated from the Royal Academy of Fine Arts in Antwerp, are his latest blue checkered shirts with Italian collars, comfortable pants with embroidered side details, and an attractive blazer made of 100% virgin wool, with impeccable collar details.

An interesting fact about Haider is that Karl Lagerfeld once expressed his desire for him to be his successor at Chanel. That's the level of his proposition and impact in the fashion world.

This selection is just a small part of the entire LGBTQIA+ designer community #OnlyOnFARFETCH.
