Madrid's bright colours to counter economic gloom
Text size Aa Aa

Bright colours and flowing lines were on show at the 56th Madrid Fashion Week, a pause to help switch the focus away from the country’s financial problems.

Josep Font, the new creative director of Del Pozo fashion house, went for elegance with a collection in soft colours.

He joined Del Pozo, one of the most prestigious Spanish houses, earlier this year. He has remained faithful to the late founder’s ideas of the meeting of tradition and a new and modern avant-garde approach.

On show in the Devota & Lomba collection were plenty of feminine flowers in silk satin, silk gauze and painted cotton poplin.

Colours and neutral shades blended together in a series of urban clothing items featuring a modern touch.

Lately the brand has also focused on fashionable trends such as new technologies and renewable energies.

A nostalgic, almost sad, mood came with the Lemoniez collection. The designer chose brown tones for an architectural collection inspired by female adventurers of the 20th century.

Gabardines, masculine trousers, shirt dresses and aviator’s skirts all complemented with indispensable berets.
