Mercedez-Benz Fashion Week Madrid Fall-Winter 2017-18 edition dazzled with a great number of remarkable collections by the Who-Is-Who of Spanish designers,
complete with fashion shoes and accessories made specifically for the occasion, in collaboration with some of the best Spanish shoe brands.
Here are my favorite collections of the season:
This collection expresses the longing for opulent aristocratic outfits worthy of the English royal court, albeit with a distinct Spanish influence – the black and gold combination is very Spanish, and so is the intricate burgundy and gold woven pattern of the boots. The emerald velvet pant with its stunning side strap embroidery is similar to the kind worn by Spanish bullfighters, only not so fitted.
This year, Juan Duyos, a relatively young fashion designer, is celebrating his impressive twenty-year track record in the Spanish fashion industry. He started out as an indie designer and then moved on to occupy leading positions at prominent apparel firms until finally launching an haute-couture line of his own. The Duyos style is a mixture of luxury and mythology. The free-flowing garments in shimmering and transparent materials often feature refined embellishments. The Fall-Winter 17-18 collection is divided into black and white segments. Shoes for both parts of the collection were created by Duyos in collaboration with Custom & Chic, a made-to-order shoe atelier that allows everyone, not only designers, to create shoes that suit their individual tastes and needs.
It would not be an exaggeration to say that shoes and by Custom & Chic are indispensable elements of the classical world glamour that Duyos seems to be after.
If you enjoyed these outfits and the corresponding fashion shoes and accessories, more is on the way!
