We round up some of our favorite looks from this year’s event, with photos taken at the stunning MACBA.
From mesmerizing catwalks to iridescent color palettes and scenic backdrops, this year’s digital edition of 080 Barcelona Fashion Week far exceeded expectations to showcase the best of Barcelona’s emerging designers. And with the first two days providing great inspiration for the coming summer months, we thought it was about time we unveiled the brands that brought the bi-annual event to a close. With this year’s backdrop provided by the Barcelona Museum of Contemporary Art, the designers allowed their collections to breathe in entirely new spaces, leaving us all in awe.
So, to see our final roundup of designers who headlined this year’s event, head below now…
Creating a collection suitable for all earth signs, Paloma Wool introduced a new collection inspired by natural patterns, colors and materials. Featuring natural wash denim, asymmetrical cotton and wool in earth tones, the capsule is both smart and casual, comfortable yet on-trend. Posing as a true homage to the label’s knitting DNA, Paloma Wool strips her designs down to their most natural, showcasing her ability to transcend every season, timeline and trend.
After a long weekend full of sunny skies and beer garden motifs, we can finally say goodbye to our winter wardrobes in favor of light, fruity garments. Motivating us to continue with this task, Eiko Aï showed her collection inspired by solar energy called Lucid Dreams. While each fabric was sprayed with citrus tones of lemon and tangerine, the cuts remained oversized and airy. Vibrant, warm and sensual, the collection will leave you feeling fresh from the sun and ready for a cosmopolitan beach.
For those who opt for jacquard prints and dynamic patterns, The Artelier presents them galore in the form of single-cut suits and matching sets. While each vest, suit jacket and skinny pant leg is bathed in warm, sunset-inspired tones, the designer portrays the ups and downs of her personal life. While sheer fabrics like tulle represent sheer sheerness, the use of oversized cuts seeks to portray an all-encompassing feel. Keeping the suits as the capsule’s main character, she represents mourning and marriage in equal measure, celebrating both individualism and unity.
Another collection with a metaphor in its DNA is The Sense of Paper, a line by Simorra that closed the 29th edition of 080 Barcelona Fashion. Maintaining a blank canvas at all times, structured shirts and sweetheart necklines are brought to life with fresh white fabric that mimics the texture of paper. By proposing the need for a new beginning, the collection inspires us to write our new beginnings and accept turning a new page.
Taking storytelling to a whole new level, Tíscar Espadas presented its latest Open Chapter collection on a clean white background, allowing unique silhouettes and garments to create a dreamlike narrative based on heroes and characters that sit between the divine and the human. With collars chosen from the Victorian era and hats that evoke medieval sentiments, the collection takes menswear into a mythical realm, allowing imagination and possibilities to run wild.
Victor Von Schwartz
And finally, to end our roundup with a burst of bubblegum color, Victor Von Schwartz showed off his new collection titled The Triad. Taking inspiration from the Asian mafias of the ’80s and ’90s, a selection of puffy mesh tops and short suits are presented that leave a feminine air in all pieces. Using mesh, sequins and fur, the collection embraces transparency and femininity in equal parts, creating a display that is as captivating and memorable as the label itself.
