Spanish Designers: Eccentric, Ole!

September 15, 2006 by kendah

Showing up for a fashion event at 8 am on a rainy morning amounts to one thing: torture. But thanks to the over-the-top creativity of Spain’s clothing, shoe and jewelry designers, waking up in the Bryant Park Hotel was like being slapped with a rainbow.

8:15 AM Show up, dripping, see name tags and want to cry.


8:20 Smiling women in Technicolor usher me to two girls in fabulous, matching Agatha Ruiz de la Prada dresses. I smile too.

8:22 Suddenly a fashion breakfast seem fun. I’m given the quick story of de la Prada’s kooky line. I see her Christmas Dress. My eyes have trouble focusing, but it’s a good time.

I’m reminded how Spain’s designers are often eclipsed by French and Italian giants and take it as a point well taken. Looking at Custo Barcelona’s éclats des couleurs, patterns and fabrics makes me wonder how anything can eclipse Spanish fashion—it’s insane.

[I will also take a moment to remind you of Spanish mass outfitting geniuses, Mango and Zara, amazing clothes that hardly cost a Euro.]

8:23 Perusal of shockingly not-so-sensible Spring line of shoes inspired by Brazil.) ,

8:30 Monoplaza’s a name to watch for. Though they don’t have a website up just yet—they make dangerously gorgeous swim, under and outwear. The silver swim suit practically brings tears to my eyes.

8:31 Visions of palm trees, sunshine, sand and pools. Me in that swimsuit. Anywhere but New York on a rainy morning in September.

Check out: Camper has cute flat boots for fall. Get them while you wait for the Brazilian wedges from the Spring collection.
