The third day started at 10.30 with the Ailanto show.
The brothers presented a special mix of textures, volumes
Kina Fernandez was a great surprise this season.
Her pretty, feminine collection showed how to dress sexily,
and not freeze at the same time.
Juanjo Oliva and his Hitchcockian clothes were
a breath of fresh air. Unlike the music in the background which
made you feel quite uncomfortable, suggesting there’s
a psycho behind you, ready to stab you in the back when you’re
not looking. It’s hard to focus on clothes when your
mind is thinking about quick death.
The next best thing that happened at Cibeles this edition
was, of course, David Delfin. His futuristic Dyogenes
Syndrome collection was, as always, quite breathtaking.
The most famous Spanish designer always get a lot of
attention from the press not only because of his clothes,
but also who he’s friends with. Unfortunately this time, in
the front row, there was no Almódovar or Rosie de Palma,
but only Bibi Andersen, famous transsexual movie and TV
star. Delfin’s muse, ex-model, and musician Bimba Bose closed
his catwalk with great style. She’s pregnant, by the way.
The same day Ana Locking showed her very colourful
geometric collectionone of the most interesting of the week.
The fourth day did not have an autumnwinter feel
at all. There was a lot of lingerie (TCN),
and colourful, fruity things (Adolfo Dominguez, Sita Murt)
that took you away for a bit for a vacation. Latin Dreams
by Andres Sarda was one big cliché. Then Miguel Palacio
gave a good collection: there was able tailoring, and
a nice story behind the collection. Dominguez’s
collection was one of the most commercialized brands to be
shown at Cibeles, and not much besides can be said about his collection
for next winter.
Spain loves fur. Real fur. PETA
doesn’t work well there, otherwise there would be a lot
of paint used. This was not even on the runways: there were
furs in front and back rows. There was fur on men and women, and
even on children. Fur lovers: go to Spain, it’s simply
heaven for you.
