Encuentros de Couture | Antonio Ortega 2016

Encuentros de Couture | Antonio Ortega 2016

The 2016 collection was titled ENCOUNTERS-RECONTRES

Audacity, humanity and creativity are the qualities used to tell a story.. The Couture story of Antonio Ortega, his 2016 collection shows the luxury of today’s world.  Now, the real luxury consists of the chance to express yourself and have the opportunity to embrace encounters.. In his case it was the chance to meet three exceptional artisans: Señora Camerina Teresa, Señora Inés both talented in the art of crochet and Veronique Loupe, talented in making lace.

The meetings evoked a childhood feeling and enable him to gain inspiration for the collection.

Subtle gray tones served as the foundation canvas for the paneling and cut-outs seen above.  The splash of color was a vivid color enhancement served as part of the accessorizing story.

Earth tones, combined with muted tones gave the collection a modernistic look.

REFLEJOS OF THE SKY

The collection thus captures these emotions, those memories and borrows images such as a landscape in which the Earth and sky are one… A day passes, seasons, storms, a landscape of air and water, pasture and earth become successively threatening, joyful, disturbing, and calm; all is transformed over time. Antonio Ortega cuts slices of the sky to construct his clothing landscapes, blending camaïeu, shine, contrast – be it tormented or ever so slight – and chiffon, silk crepe, cotton, tweed, riveted leather, taffeta, feathers and rhinestones to form a collection for the seductive, sensuous woman.

MLTV is another design brand I had the chance of seeing while I was in TRANOI homme last January. MLTV is the brainchild of Anna Sjunnesson based in Stockholm, Sweden. The Collection consists of classic men’s wear items modified into contemporary style with the classic Nordic minimalism look.

The designs navigate a fine line between the boundaries of femininity and masculinity aesthetics, yet making them very simple.

For those of you concerned with environment, MLTV is manufactured in Europe in limited quantities and strive to keep the impact to the environment minimal. You can see more from the designer at www.mltvclothing.com. If you a lucky enough to find some of the limited stock available you can shop at http://mltv.tictail.com.
