Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week Madrid Fall-Winter 2014-15 edition just concluded and hot on its heels is this recap of the coolest shoes and accessories that rocked the runways of Madrid’s fashion district.
The most striking collection was that of Martín Lamothe, a label directed by Elena Martín, a Barcelona native who at her thirty-four years of age has covered a lot of fashion ground working in London for Vivienne Westwood and Alexander McQueen, styling music personalities like Cher and Kylie Minogue, and teaching at fashion schools in Spain and Latin America.
Her FW14-15 collection revealed a fascination with witches, that widely misunderstood group of women with a tortured past. Elena’s witches paraded elegantly in shimmering black and grey ensembles, ultra wide-brim hats. To top it all up, they wore stilettos and “legging-style” stiletto boots in a white-black geometrical pattern that the designer named “fortune”. The shoes were created by Spanish designer Pilar Burgos.
