To Cabra-Montéz, clothing is not tied to gender but to the body. The brand produces unisex pieces with the idea of blurring gender lines: using fashion as a manifesto against prejudice.
Raul Dotto, Cabra-Montéz’s creative director began his artistic production through installations with materials similar to clothes, in a form of participatory art. For him, fashion is more closely related to creation rather than with trends– he believes that people need change, and fashion is able to meet these needs.
Following on from the debut collection and online store launch in January 2013 this collection focuses on the details, with emphasis on modeling and the use of innovative techniques. From the beginning is seems the brand has remained indifferent to submitting to regionalist vision and techniques, preferring a creative approach that is driven by the quality and authenticity of it's products.
It's apparent this Brazilian brand has an independent and thoughtful sense of beauty which aims to create a consumer experience that goes beyond shopping. Moreover the clear identity of the brand makes it's minimal cohesion and clean lined clothing even more inticing.
