Alvarno SS12


I've been impatient to write about it since I attended Alvarno's show Thursday evening, but I've been busy with a project I'm working on, that's another story I'll tell you about later. This show was the one (if not the only) event I was looking forward to in "Madrid Fashion Week". If I had a craving for glamour and luxury it is satisfied.

One of the definitions of this collection was "the Spirit of Paris and the Light of Madrid". Spirit and Light, seduction and elegance, purity and luxury, dream and reality, magnetic poles that attract themselves in the beautiful designs of Arnaud and Álvaro, two designers with a brilliant career in fashion and that have created their own path together, shooting like a star in Madrid's (let's admit it) dull fashion panorama, but with their feet well on the ground.

The collections subtle and neutral colors -black, ivory, a very light soft taupe- highlighted the masterly draping and cut, the luxurious crêpe-de-chine and peau d'ange, keeping away from obvious references and focussing on an array of breathtaking cocktail and evening dresses. There was just the right touch of eccentricity in the accessories and details, made of a extremely fine metallic and glass bead crochet, bracelets, necklaces, brooches, shoulder pads (somewhat reminiscent of Balenciaga's "torero" jackets), even a transparent short dress made entirely using this technique, in soft peach and yellow, that achieved what seems almost impossible, to be at the same time absolutely sexy and elegant at the same time.

Gratis Total has a great post with all these details at Trendencias, and don't miss Alvarno's official website for more information.

Estaba impaciente por escribir sobre esto desde que vi el desfile de Alvarno el jueves por la tarde, pero estoy ocupado con un proyecto en el que estoy metido, esa es otra historia que ya os contaré. Este desfile era uno de (si no el único) los eventos que más ilusión me hacía de la  "Madrid Fashion Week". Si tenía algún antojo de glamour y lujo ya está satisfecho.

Una de las definiciones de esta colección era "el Espíritu de París y la Luz de Madrid". Espíritu y Luz, seducción y elegancia, pureza y lujo, sueño y realidad, polos magnéticos que se atraen en los bellos diseños de Arnaud y Álvaro, dos diseñadores con una brillante carrera en moda que han creado su propio camino juntos, despuntando como una estrella en el (admitámoslo) aburrido panorama de la moda en Madrid, pero con los pies bien en el tierra.

Los colores sutiles y neutros de la colección -negro, marfil, un suave topo claro- resaltaban la maestría de los drapeados y los cortes, los lujosos crêpe-de-chine y peau d'ange, alejándose de referencias demasiado obvias y centrándose en una serie de arrebatadores vestidos de cocktail y noche. El toque justo de excentricidad lo aportaban los accesorios y los detalles, realizados en un fino crochet de hilo metálico y cuentas de cristal, pulseras, collares, broches, hombreras (con alguna reminiscencia de las toreras de Balenciaga), hasta un transparente vestido corto hecho enteramente en esta técnica, en suaves colores melocotón y amarillo, que conseguía lo que parece imposible, ser al mismo tiempo absolutamente sexy y elegante.

Gratis Total tiene un post genial con todos los detalles en Trendencias, y no os perdáis la web oficial de Alvarno para más información.

He visto alguna que otra foto del desfile y creo que los diseños estan super cuidados. Unos tejidos (mikados, crepes...) que son una autentica delicia.

Sorry, I was mistaken, not reading carefully and this is not Alverado but Alvaro. So glad Madrid is moving in Fashion because to get complimented by you means something is happening, besos
