Mercedes Benz Madrid Fashion Week 2021

It takes as a reference the Valencia of the thirties, where some examples of rationalist architecture emerge linked to typologies that identify with the modern way of life.

The famous Arenas Spa is one of these first open-air constructions where people had taken up the habit of bathing in the sea. The pools of the Arenas were immediately known thanks to the excellent poster that Josep Renau designed for its opening in July 1934, and the following year they served as the venue for the national swimming championships.

The first block, with a strong ergonomic sense, with designs and construction details from naval architecture, immerse us in a revolutionary navy style that combines nostalgia and modernity. A versatile theme that adapts to a lifestyle full of sports activity, balancing well- being and comfort, juxtaposing the relaxed and tactile with the tight and energetic.

The second block, nocturnal, is full of sophistication. The lights projection immerse us in a universe of sparkles with details of iridescent plastic.
Pure lines and geometric shapes of Constructivist style with details and winks to Art Deco, establish a dichotomy of artistic styles.

In terms of colorimetry, the triad is made up of navy blue, white and orange-red that evolve towards solarized tones, yellow, pink and mauve with 3D embroidery that simulates the reflections of water.
To finish the parade, the firm nods to the swimsuit he made in 2012 for the National Synchronized Swimming Team and his participation in the London Olympics with which he won the silver medal. Swimsuit that takes as reference the scales of a marine animal made of mirror effect material as scales and that became an icon.

To end the parade, the firm makes a nod to the swimsuit they made in 2012 for the National Synchronized Swimming Team and its participation in the London Olympic Games, in which they obtained the silver medal. A swimsuit that takes as a reference the scales of marine animals, made with mirror-effect material and that became an icon.

Mercedes Benz Madrid Fashion Week 2020

Collection that takes as a reference the creative universe of the
French painter Henri Matisse (1869-1954) and his passion for the fusion between the pictorial and the textile design.

Tropical influences oppose elements belonging to ancestral and primitive cultures, always taking into account sensuality, ornamentation and tradition. A swimwear collection made of fluid and draped structures with lurex material that seeks the harmonic unity between graphic and formal elements. Bikinis, swimsuits and trikinis that are “scarf” shaped, with frills and knots, are intertwined over the body in a complex and unique way.

Natural details establish dichotomies to collage-effect embroidery, tassels and silk fringes that provide an oriental sumptuousness. Juxtaposed colors are blended in warm-cold combinations.
The result; women who become odalisques with eclectic prints where arabesques, geometric drawings, leaves and stripes all coexist. A graphic-ornamental universe that recreates a nomadic, fresh and sophisticated style. Designs that unfold in idyllic scenaries and unreal environments built by the creative imaginary itself.

TROPICAL DECÓ SUMMER 2019

Swimwear collection that takes as a reference Miami’s streamline and its distinctive Decó style in all of its aspects.

The architecture of Ocean Drive or Collins avenue, its buildings, shapes and ornamental elements configure an amalgam of artistically influences that converge into our stylistic pattern.

Primary geometric shapes as the circle, straight lines, parallel or in zigzag. Exotic motifs and tropical flora and fauna stylised elements.

Prominence of pastel shades and vitamined colors with degradé effects and flashes of neon lights.

Structured designs with handmade textures and lace of geometrical inspiration offer a contemporary delicacy.

Volumes in contraposition and shapes that play with symmetry create a fantastic universe where art, design and architecture join.

XXL folds are in contradiction with morbid ones with high fluidity.

The combination of black and white stripes prints suggests the look and feel of the transatlantic trips that along with luxurious materials involve us in a sophisticated context.

A dreamy scenario built over the decades that immerses us into a graphic, formal and colourist idealism.

Mercedes Benz Madrid Fashion Week 2018

Couture Swimwear Collection in which the influences of Primitive Art, along with the Cubist art movement, are the starting point.

Ancestral creations of secret tribes merge and reinvent with graphic touches of large planes of scorching colours, fragmenting lines and surfaces.

The handmade braided and knotted works, so elaborately set off the multiple perspective avant-garde forms.
A colour palette cracked by the predominance of mustard yellow, is accentuated by piercing blue colours.

The laminated reflexes of fabrics offer an environment of sophistication and magnificence.
Millennia of cultural exchange give rise to a collection in which technical and manual are offset.

Mercedes Benz Madrid Fashion Week 2017

The 2017 collection draws its inspiration from the artistic vanguards of Kinetic Art and Op-Art. Large sections of colour that combine with patterned grids and structures that provide a sensation of movement.

Architectonic shapes, combination and repetition of simple geometric figures such as rectangles, squares, triangles or circles.

With regards to colour, there are marked contrasts, whether poly or bichromatic. The tones create gradations of lights and shadows, thus extending the tone range. Silver laminated fabrics of varying intensity and padded materials with 3D effect generate a more sophisticated atmosphere with a certain galactic air.

A radical, personal and polymorphic universe for a collection of swimsuit fashion that bases its reason for being on the aesthetics of movement.

Blacks, whites and bright sorbets combine with animal prints and kinetic strokes, expressing vitality and attitude.

HAPPY YEARS
Childhood nostalgia, of those unforgettable holidays by the sea, translates into a line of vintage vocation based on the unique atmosphere of the beaches in the 60s.
Stripes, tricot drafts, wrinkled fabrics, embroidery, textures… show the spirit of the past to emphasize through candy colors combined with vanilla or white.

SEA AND SUN
Reflections, shine, wet look, .. coral tones for little sirens.
Gold is interspersed in the tissues recalling the brightness of the sun when it is reflected on the sea and on the warm and golden sand.
White brings purity and blue and turquoise colours remember the the marine world wealth.
Back to embossed tissues like pique, woven stripes and small flowers.

HAPPY JUNGLE
The range of green colours will be the focus: Emerald, acid green, khaki and moss recall the thick jungle and colors of its vegetation.They combine with lilac, fuchsia and tropical flowers and remember Brazilian environments, always exotic.
