Spanish designer Ion Fiz opened the third day of Mercedes Benz Fashion Week Madrid with his twenty-third prêt-à-porter collection Sui generis.
A balanced mixture of fine fabrics, clean technology and pure craftsmanship, the designer’s sophisticated line featured pieces embellished with Swarovski crystal and feathers. Based on an earthy palette of off-white, beige, sand, pearl, oil, emerald and black, the silk, latex and wool made ensembles highlighted architectural straight lines and masculine cut tailoring styles.
Thirty one-year-old designer Sara Coleman presented an eclectic Fall/Winter collection with an abundant display of monochromes. Made of luxurious chiffon, wool mohair, cashmere, cotton, viscose and crepe fabrics, the voluminously textured range in yellow, dark blue, green and red were enriched with geometrical patterns.
Madrid born Juanjo Oliva recreated a scene from Tom Ford directed Hollywood movie ‘A Single Man’ to showcase his latest runway presentation. Combining elegance and sensuality, the fine cotton and wool based collection featured slit and wrist sleeve full length gowns in black, white, purple, bottle green and indigo shades.
Juan Duyos paid homage to the lively culture and people of Spain through his latest apparel line. Inspired by Andalusia’s famous music and dance genre Flamenco, the luxuriously feminine silk, fur and lace made collection was adorned with gauze, frills, ruffles and glitters. The line featured high waist puffed skirts and leather jumpsuits in wine, orange and pink tones.
