Barcelona Fashion Week │ SS17 Recap

ANA FLORENTINA

Happy Monday!  Hope that you enjoyed each designer that I shared with you last week!  Below I have rounded up four more fashion labels from the 18th Edition of Barcelona Fashion Week that I thought had creative and attractive look-books.  And with today’s post I am concluding my posts on Spanish & Catalan designers that showcased their SS17 collections earlier this month in Barcelona.  I also hope that you enjoyed learning about the Spanish fashion industry.  Catalonia and the city of Barcelona have a long tradition in the textile industry, and my appreciation for it began while I was pursuing my graduate studies in the city.  I quickly fell in love with the culture, the food, the warm atmosphere, and the fashion scene..  Take a look below, and let me know your thoughts!

JUSTICIA RUANO

Spring – Summer 2017

Five words: Barcelona Fashion Week is here!  I am so excited!!  This is my fourth year sharing with you my appreciation for Spanish & Catalan designers, and this entire week I will be featuring one or two designers per day.  I am starting with Justicia Ruano who showcased her latest Spring – Summer collection today during the first day of the 18th Edition of 080 Barcelona Fashion.  The event took place at INEFC in Barcelona.  Justicia Ruano is easily one of my favorites, her creations are luxurious, feminine and gorgeous!!  Each of her pieces are quite sophisticated yet modern at the same time.  By mixing textures, materials and colors she creates extravagant looks.  She successfully reinvents contemporary luxury year after year, and never disappoints me.  Take a look below!    

Primavera – Verano 2017

Nueve palabras: La Semana de la Moda de Barcelona está aquí!  ¡¡Estoy tan contenta!!  Este es el cuarto año que comparto con ustedes todos los diseñadores españoles y catalanes que tanto me gustan, y durante esta semana les voy a mostrar uno o dos diseñadores por día.  Empiezo con Justicia Ruano quien mostró su última colección de Primavera – Verano hoy en la 18ª edición del 080 Barcelona Fashion, que tuvo lugar en el INEFC de Barcelona.  

Justicia Ruano es fácilmente una de mis favoritas, sus creaciones son lujosas, femeninas y hermosas!!  Cada una de sus piezas es bastante sofisticada pero moderna al mismo tiempo.  Mediante la mezcla de texturas, materiales y colores ella logra crear looks extravagantes.  Justicia reinventa con éxito el lujo contemporáneo año tras año, y nunca me decepciona.  Sin excepción cada vez que se lleva a cabo esta semana de la moda extraño mi vida en Barcelona y me encantaría estar allí para presenciar estos desfiles.  Ojala muy pronto pueda regresar.  Miren sus conjuntos!

Colección ‘Freedom’s Mood’

A las colecciones de Sita Murt me gusta describirlas como una “Elegancia Relajada.”  Para el invierno predominan los tonos neutros como el blanco, crema, beige, gris y negro, y unos pocos colores vivos: rojo y mostaza.  Su última colección está inspirada en los años 70, y fue creada para las mujeres que son femeninas, de espíritu libre y sensuales.  A mi personalmente me gusta vestirme con prendas cómodas pero elegantes al mismo tiempo.   Me ha encantado todo!

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
