Barcelona Fashion | Custo Barcelona AW16/17

CUSTO BARCELONA

AUTUMN/WINTER 2016-17

If there is one designer that loves to experiment with colors and shapes, it is definitely Custo Dalmau!  No matter how festive his outfits look, his options for women are always feminine, either a flirty dress or a revealing mini-skirt.  His options for Fall looked a bit more classic than usual: notice that the first six looks below are predominantly black or dark brown with metallic or embellished threads.  His collections are also always a festival of multiple fabrics and textures.  I really like his options this season.  Enjoy!

CUSTO BARCELONA

Otoño/Invierno 2016-17

Si existe un diseñador que le gusta experimentar con colores y formas, definitivamente es Custo Dalmau!  Sus atuendos para la mujer tienden a ser siempre muy femeninos, un vestido coqueto o una mini-falda.  Para el otoño he notado un look un poco más clásico de lo habitual: observen que los primeros seis looks son principalmente de color marrón oscuro o negro con hilos metálicos o adornados.  Y al igual que siempre, sus colecciones son un festival de múltiples tejidos y texturas.  Me ha gustado mucho esta temporada.  ¡Disfruten!

CELIA VELA

AUTUMN – WINTER 2016/17

Hi Ladies!  Barcelona fashion week is officially here!!!   Today I will share with you a designer that I super love, CELIA VELA, who debuted her AUTUMN/WINTER 2016-17 Collection during the first day at 080 Barcelona Fashion.  What a spectacular collection she brings for 2016-17!  Her looks for next Fall seem to belong in the 1920s… the predominant color was black, and most outfits had lots of jewels and stones that decorated or accentuated it.
Among the various materials and textures she chose, I did notice quite a lot of velvet, which I love to wear during the winter.  Celia is misterious, creative and always feminine.  I have been sharing her collections since 2013, check out her gorgeous previous looks in my older posts.  What do you think of her 2016-17 collection?

OTOÑO / INVIERNO 2016-17

Buenas chicas!  Oficialmente ha comenzado la semana de la moda en Barcelona!  Hoy voy a compartir con ustedes una diseñadora estupenda, CELIA VELA, que debutó su Colección para el OTOÑO / INVIERNO 2016-17  durante el primer día del 080 Barcelona Fashion.  Celia nos trae una colección para el 2016-17 con un look muy de los años 20, donde los protagonistas son el negro, el bordó, y el verde oscuro, adornados con una gran cantidad de brillantes y piedras para acenuar cada atuendo.
Muchos de sus trajes estaban hechos de terciopelo, que a mí me encanta para usar en invierno.  Celia es misteriosa, super creativa y siempre femenina.  Desde el 2013 les estoy compartiendo las colecciones de ella, si gustan pueden ver sus increíbles y preciosas colecciones anteriores en mis publicaciones más antiguas.  ¿Qué opinan de su nueva colección para el 2016-17?

Barcelona Fashion | Menchen Tomas SS16

MENCHEN TOMAS SS16

The SS16 collection that I will focus on from tonight’s fashion show at 080 Barcelona Fashion is MENCHEN TOMAS.  MENCHEN TOMAS was founded in 1995 by two designers, Olga R. Menchen and Francesc G. Tomas.   From their runway show at 080 Barcelona Fashion, I could not pick just four, so I picked twelve!  Pastel pink, light blue, red and white are the prominent colors of their SS16 collection.  Gold accents highlight a few pieces, but sheer and textured fabrics are predominant.  I am a big fan of everything so feminine, so I love it.  Enjoy!

Xx,

Florencia

Barcelona Fashion | Celia Vela SS16 / Wom&Now SS16

CELIA VELA SS16 2016

CELIA VELA’s designs are my favorite!  I am obsessed with her SS16 collection.  Each piece of clothing is feminine.  It was difficult for me to choose my favorite four to show you here, and I also want them all.  One interesting fact about her is that she has been travelling to Tokyo, Japan since 1999, and currently has a showroom in Tokyo.  ** After presenting tonight at 080 Barcelona Fashion, CELIA VELA won the National Award for the Best Collection at 080 Barcelona Fashion.

WOM & NOW SS16

Collection “Cote d’Azur” 

Each piece of the collection aims to be comfortable, while also being refined, exquisite and alluring.  WOM & NOW states that its collections are designed for cosmolopitan and dynamic women that desire clothing with an impeccable silhouette and a modern twist.  In my opinion WOM & NOW’s SS16 achieves that perfectly.  Here are my top three!

Bohemian Sophistication: two words that perfectly sum up SITA MURT’s newest collection.  The essence of SITA MURT’s Spring-Summer’16 style embodies pure femininity by using textured & delicate fabrics to create flowy silhouettes.

MANGO SS16

080 Barcelona Spring – Summer 2016 officially began today!  MANGO, the internationally known Spanish fashion brand, opened up fashion week in Barcelona with a new collection inspired in the 60s and 70s.  Rocker style pieces compose their new collection, while maintaining an elegant black & white look.  There was also a ton of fringe.  Fringe is definitely coming back.  I absolutely loved every outfit!

I have been wearing MANGO for over a decade!  MANGO has always been one of my favorite brands, and during the years that I lived in Barcelona, I literally visited their store every single week.  My wardrobe was MANGO from my head to my toes!  One aspect that I absolutely love about their clothes is that it flows, and their pieces are light and timeless.  Check out my favorite looks for next Spring!

Lots of love,

Flora
