There were so many amazing designers at MBFW Madrid that it would take weeks to talk about all of them so we wanted to show you our absolute favs from the shows. These are the items you will want, no need to have for next spring/summer.
The first to to show at MBFWMadrid, Josep Pont for Del Pozo, created a gorgeous collection. Very feminine and with exquisite detailing it was hard to pick a favorite. But in the end we fell for the architectural skirts combined with simple silk tops.
David Delfín, celebrating his 10th year showing at Madrid Fashion Week, won best collection for his sophisticated and deconstructed looks. Our favorite…the boxy bags in reds, pink and white. We love the silver hardware and combination of red and pink.
Ana Locking always presents a fun collection and S/S13 was no different. Putting aside the jewelry controversy we loved her looks, especially the pencil skirts and peplum tops accentuated by rope belts.
The Martin Lamothe S/S13 collection used many different fabrics knotted and twisted together to create a textured look. We love the technique used here in a cute short dress.
Maya Hansen known best for her corsets showed a varied collection inspired by Frida Khalo and Mexico’s day of the dead celebration. Our fav, her collaboration with Fosco on the shoes. Fosco supplied the basic model and Maya Hansen added the decoration and fabric. While the metal accessories below may not be the most practical (or comfortable) they do look pretty awesome.
María Escoté certainly caught the audience´s attention with her wild looks covered in zigzag, skulls and crazy monkeys. We would definitely wear theses tops with skinny jeans or a pencil skirt.
TCN showed a very wearable and comfortable collection full of easy summer pieces. The best though was the first look. With a black light lit stage the models’ florescent lingerie literally glowed in the dark as they started down the runway. Worth installing a black light in your bedroom for? We think so.
