Simorra and the ephemeral nature of nature
Javier Simorra’s firm has presented Echoes of Naturea collection for this fall/winter 23-24 “inspired by the ephemeral writings of water and air that, drawn whimsically like irregular paths on the skin of the Planet, are a praise to the creative force of nature and its delicate form of “To capture beauty. He wants to capture in his garments, as if they were the waves of an echo, the fleeting beauty of the landscape shaped by the different sounds of nature through the fabrics, textures and folds that make up this collection.”
This idea was reflected both in the designs and on the catwalk, making the models parade on the water and accompanied by smoke that surrounded them to evoke the clouds and a light breeze that took us to the autumn days and provided more movement to the images. garments, created in-situ on the woman’s body with the moulage technique‘.
They predominate earth and metallic tonesone of the big trends of the season, among which colors such as oranges, terracottas, shades of green, red and, of course, ecru and white stand out, always present in all the firm’s collections.
As for the designs, they also seek to emulate the different shapes of nature, such as the sweaters and knitted dresses with embroidered details in high relief that are reminiscent of delicate white clouds or the micropleated nappa that imitate the waves that form in the water, an element also present in the draped dresses, whose print emulates the waves of the sea.
Custo Barcelona and its journey to the ‘other side’
For the spring/summer 24 season, Custo Barcelona invites us on a journey into the unknown, with out-of-this-world designs in which creativity and innovation prevail. Under the name of Welcome to the other side (welcome to the other side), the volumes, lines and fusion of materials are the protagonists.
This collection is anything but predictable, with satin fabrics, sequins in bright and metallic colors, gauze on the puffed sleeves, cut-outs everywhere and the mesh that has been accompanying us in recent summer seasons.
The colors invite you to spend a night on the beachwhere blues, greens, yellows and gold meet the most festive tones such as silver, black, fuchsia and red, accompanied by transparencies and very daring designs.

Greens, fuchsias and electric blues star in skirts, tops and dresses that will be essential for the next season.
Without a doubt, Las Vegas has been the main source of inspirationwith dresses and sets full of sequins and lurex, accompanied by leopard-print scarves and blouses.
The suits are transformed into fun outfits that move away from any trace of seriousness of those that executives always wear and reveal a new way of reinventing these garments, which end bathing in glitter.
