In a follow up to the post on the Madrid Fashion Week, here is a sampling of Spanish designers that hit the runways of the New York and Paris Fashion Weeks. There will be some familiar names, but the collections are not quite the same. I always find it interesting how the collections change according to the public they are showing for. Some time ago I had a frustrating time trying to locate some amazing Wrangler shirts (nothing beats Wrangler, in my opinion, when it comes to Western-style shirts), but the ones I was looking at were from the Wrangler Latin American collection and I blew away some Argentinian retailers begging them to sell me some shirts they had in stock. No way, Jose! The Wrangler North America and Wrangler Europe collections, on the other hand, were not my thing at all. This is the reality of consumer-oriented market research.
Anywho, here are some Made in Spain goodies from New York and Paris!
DelPozo is becoming a fashion legend as we speak. Its strange, mesmerizing beauty is enhanced by the very Spanish plateresque-like virtuoso craftsmanship. The SS15 collection, as shown in New York on September 10, 2014:
Here is Desigual in New York on September 4th, 2014.
Their New York show was headlined by yet another supermodel: Adriana Lima.
Note the difference with the Madrid Show. The colors are a lot more saturated and the patterns more dense. More conservative, maybe? At least that’s how I’ve heard some Spanish designers describe the North American taste in fashion.
PEDRO DEL HIERRO MADRID
Many pieces from the Pedro del Hierro very classic, very sleek SS15 collection, as shown in New York on September 9, 2014 were complemented by a beautiful metallic buckle detail, repeated in the elegant strappy sandals.
The luxury brand Loewe showed its uber–chic sumptuous SS15 leather work on September 26, 2014, in Paris, where else? They can make leather anything, in all colors and patterns, and it all looks amazing, if almost a bit excessive in these austere times of ours.
So here you go! What did you think?
