Madrid, Sep 18 (EFE) .- The Madrid catwalk closed the day with the shows by Marcos Luengo, Custo Barcelona and Otrura, an edition in which designer fashion dreams of seeing the light at the end of the tunnel, with which it aspires to revitalize sales and attract the consumer again.
Many of the proposals of the 74th edition of the Madrid catwalk come wrapped with a halo that recall great creators. And, it is understood, the good and the beautiful are liked by everyone, especially when craftsmanship is present.
“This collection highlights the trades and crafts of fashion,” explained to Efe Paula Maiques, daughter that Isabel Sánchis, founder of the firm, present in more than 40 countries, such as Italy, France, Switzerland, the United States, Singapore , China, Panama, South Africa, United Arab Emirates or Qatar.
In this edition, a flower-shaped piece made with sustainable material stood out, “a thread made with PET bottles,” said Paula Maiques, as well as an extensive collection of party dresses in which pleats stood out.
Before the show, Marcos Luengo warned that the pandemic has unnerved the industry and is committed to “banishing complaints and all rowing in the same direction”, in favor of fashion. A job that requires effort from which “you come out tired, but reinforced”.
Luengo presented a very well structured collection, based on the painting by Rubén Martín de Lucas, which refers to the philosophy of Masanobu Fukuoka, author and forerunner of natural agriculture.
“It is a multi-seasonal collection, created from sustainable materials”, where the color of the paintings is transferred to the color palette of the garments with intense greens in dresses, sleeveless coats, flowing pieces that, girdle the body with bodices and belts.
A job to which she incorporated a men’s line for the first time, a section that her daughter Carmen has been in charge of, after studying in Antwerp and Milan, where she presented a “fashion film” with her first collection at Fashion Week.
Pieces that complement the women’s collection along the same lines and that Carmen Luengo defines as “classic, with a youthful touch, without age”. Nine “looks” made with the same linen fabrics and natural materials such as hemp, recycled nylon and organza.
