    In the collection, menswear gains weight and structured tailoring pieces are introduced that converge with its emblematic tulle flowers.

    Maria Lafuente has inaugurated the Madrid catwalk within the framework of the parades ‘Off’ with ‘Sempiterno’, a collection in which fashion masculine gains weight and in which he introduces structured pieces of tailoring that converge with his emblematic tulle flowers on the catwalk.

    The Leonese designer, one of the veterans on the catwalk, has presented her new spring-summer collection at the El Águila Complex in Madrid.

    “I wanted to introduce tailoring, but reinterpreted in my own way with ‘moulage’”explains Lafuente to Efe, a technique by which the garments are made directly on the mannequin instead of being patterned in advance, pieces that are finished off with dark jackets sprinkled with gold appliqués.

    It has also given, as a novelty, great prominence to the male figure with styles marked by wide sweatshirts and crochet pants in vibrant shades such as fuchsia and fluorine yellow, another of its great bets, in a “total look” with a tail and tight that the actress Daniela Santiago has worn.

    For the creator, who has maintained her emblematic volumes of tulle in intense color ranges, “the energy of color” continues to be the star of his designsin which there is no lack of sustainable fabrics such as tencel.

    Who has also turned color into the common thread of his proposal has been Félix Ramiro, with “Arcoíris”, in which he has managed to make fluorine colors the basis of his proposal.

    Among the machinery of the “Sergio Ramos by John Reed” gym, the models have worn a collection “in which diversity and color are absolute protagonists,” Ramiro told Efe, whose proposal evolves from dusty yellows to light blues, neons, white and blue.

    Tones printed on fabrics such as linens, cold wools and Austrian and organic cotton in a total of sixty-two pieces.

    “Many designs are entirely handmade”points out the designer, who wants more and more of his garments to be made with sustainable materials.

    Mao collars, overlays and diplomatic stripes with a width greater than usual outline a proposal in which color is the nerve center.

    The Malaga designer Rafael Urquizar makes his first foray into the “off” of MBFWMadrid with a “prêt à couture” collection inspired by the colors of the Sahara.

    After a long season dedicated to bridal design, Urquizar (Málaga, 1971) has presented his spring-summer 2023 proposal at the Wizink Center in Madrid, “inspired by the colors of the desert” to dress a woman for evening events and night.

    “Pieces that can also be taken out of context to be useful at any time of the day”, commented the designer who has opted for black and white “my favourites”, although he also includes brushstrokes of bougainvillea and mint.
