MADRID, Apr 2, 2009 / FW/ — El Tempranillo, Pasos Largos, Tragabuches… bandits from other times, wearing shawls and wraps, cut and assembled multilayered garments, stolen on mountain tracks.
Dresses, jackets, trousers and skirts which can be transformed using a set of zip fasteners. Military garments of Napoleonic and Goyesque inspiration. Country and travelling clothes. Horsewoman skirts, musketeer trousers and short dresses lengthened with leather legs.
Mountain-coloured camouflages: earth, sand, sunburnt, mustard, olive, evergreen oak, oak, rosemary and mint, geranium, carnation, mallow, lily and rose illuminated colours. Gold specks strew evening hues of aubergine and ash.
Patchwork made of technical, sophisticated, natural materials: nylon, viscose, rayon, silk, cashmere, wool, cotton, leather and fur. Masculine fabrics, Grazalema shawls, guipure and gold embroidery, leather lace.
Vagrants’ bags. Gallop, crocodile and fur wallets handcuffed to the wrist. Ankle boots with dizzy stiletto heels and adventuress’ pantaloons. Sash belts, head scarves, hats with wide brims and caps pimped out with traveler keepsakes.
