MIRIAM PONSA: INDUSTRIAL SIMPLICITY
The Catalan designer Miriam Ponsa was the manager of 080 inaugurated the footbridge Barcelona Fashion with the collection Creasilk, hard been inspired by the feelings lived during the industrial revolution, but that so well fit in the current economic conjuncture.
His collection prêt to porter was marked by urban designs that transported us to a world of minimalism and neutrality, where the garments were standing out for his simplicity. Projections of transparent drops accompanied the models during the parade, which they were combining to the perfection with the rationality of the setting of the footbridge.
Black jet, gray and green in his darkest tonalities and pants of high size with big tweezers the colors have been protagonists in the collection, in which there were not missing pledges done with latex, a material with which the designer of Manresa (Barcelona) already experienced in the past spring sample summer 2009.
Creasilk is a collection with a wide materials crossbreeding. Jackets and belts of aged leather, woolen pants Prince of Wales and of high size in tweezers and superpositions in garments multicolored knit, like that dressed the Australian model Miranda Kerr, fiancée of the acquaintance actor Orlando Bloom, who was the manager of there closed the parade and the big protagonist of the morning of the first day
ANDREA LLOSA: DRESSED TO GIVE WAR
The designs of Andrea Llosa for the autumn - winter 2010 are thought for a warlike woman who fights before the adversity. And the fact is that his collection is inspired in the warriors Mayan and in the belief of these from which in the year 2012 the end of the world will come. Hence the name of the collection “2012“ and the numerous metallic wall lights in the shape of armor.
During the parade, the designer tried to move the spectators to the ancient Mayan empire across sounds and tribal canticles and a scenery based on the forest vegetation. One to one, the warriors paraded before our eyes showing pledges of wool and cotton with forms and volumes that were resembling the ancient medieval armors. In turn, the wide belts and the big purses in the shape of shield were clearly inspired in the warlike uniforms of the ancient warriors Mayan.
The fact that the designer is a Peruvian it has a lot to do with all these cultural reminiscences. The same happens with the textiles election, I bring in those that the role of the wool emphasizes. It is a question of a very present textile in the regional garments of Peru, especially the one that comes from the flames; so much it is so some of the presented models were showing fringe and wall lights of hair of flame.
Andrea Llosa has used the chromatic scales most typical of the mother ground as that of the browns and that of the blue ones. And the fact is that the prediction that inspires this collection predicts the destruction of the materialism for v to an age in which the human being and the nature will live in harmony.
With the collection “2012“ Andrea Llosa does a parallelism between the warriors who will fight to survive at the end of the world and the women who fight every day to survive in a more and more encompassed and competitive society.
