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!

Custo Barcelona Spring-Summer 2017

CUSTO BARCELONA

Spring-Summer 2017

Custo Barcelona is an iconic fashion label that gained worldwide recognition for its unique mix of colorful graphics and prints.  Custo Barcelona unveils its collections each season at New York Fashion Week.  This is a brand that never ceases to impress me, particularly because of its constant creativity and innovation.  For SS17 there are a lot of sheer fabrics, flowing dresses, transparencies, and a huge variety of textures that adorn each outfit.  

For those of you not yet familiar with the brand, it was founded in Barcelona, Spain in the 80s, and consolidated as a brand in the 90s.  Aside from the women’s collection, the label also carries a men’s line, a kid’s line, as well as accessories and shoes.  Take a look at Custo Barcelona’s SS17 lookbook, my top four outfits are right below (click on each to see an enlarged version).  

Come back tomorrow, as I will be sharing with you yet another of my favorite Spanish designers!!

Spring – Summer 2017

“Rhythm & Blends”

Here are my favorite looks from Sita Murt’s SS17 collection!  Sita Murt was a Catalan fashion designer that created a fashion label focused on soft and sensual fabrics.  Her SS17 lookbook was showcased last night during the second day of Barcelona Fashion Week.  As usual there were a variety of textured fabrics that included knit, thin crepe cotton, and linen.  The predominant colors were indigo blue, water blue, turmeric ochre, goji red and a citric touch which overruns our most natural tones as white, ecru and linen.  Overall every outfit looked relaxed, delicate and with an emphasis placed on providing comfort for the modern woman.  Enjoy!

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!
