How to stay stylish in wet weather

A little drizzle doesn't stop Portuguese influencer Mafalda Patrício from looking dapper.
6 April 2018

Sartorially speaking, rain is always a bit of a downer. For Portuguese stunner Mafalda Patrício, a spring shower isn't reason enough to hold back on her colourful, eclectic and very personal style. With a knack for mixing and matching, she effortlessly pairs streetwear staples with elegant tunics, clashes bold colours and knows exactly how to sport eye-catching accessories. Photographer Adam Katz Sinding caught up with her in Lisbon.

WHO IS YOUR FAVOURITE DESIGNER?
"Gucci!"

WHO IS YOUR STYLE ICON?
"Jane Birkin, Alexa Chung, Linda Rodin and Kate Moss." 

WHAT IS YOUR SIGNATURE STYLE?
"I don't really have a specific style. I'd rather create my style every day depending on my mood. I love mixing and matching different styles of pieces that no one would ever think would work together!"

WHERE IS YOUR FAVOURITE PLACE ON EARTH?
"Lisbon – my city – and any beach on the Alentejo coast." 

WHAT IS YOUR FAVOURITE FOOD?
"Actually, I don't have a favourite, but I love pizza, pasta, a good steak and McDonalds! I'm so healthy... Eating is definitely one of my favourite things in life!"

WHY IS FASHION IMPORTANT?

"The 1920s, Les Années Folles. The era mirrors art and culture."
