MADRID, Oct 28, 2009 / — In the quest for lost time, cornet-garnished tangerine and lemon sorbets in an endless season, Carmen March proposes a delicate colour palette of sand, prawn, sea blue, lichen, stone, grapefruit and salt.
Luxurious fabrics with textures elaborated in refreshing colours contrast with linen and cotton in their roughest and purest states. The silhouette, with an apparently simple line, is created using meticulous, innovative cuts reflecting her passion for haute couture, which is always patent in her collections.
For accessories, leather that is natural or has metallic glints combines with brilliantly-coloured cords taken from the daily outfits and tools of life on the edge of the sea.
