What is fashion but life? This is defined as Pierre Cardin fashion importance for society, for economic progress and the identity of a French country ... the creator was responsible for putting an end to the ninth 080 Barcelona Fashion issue and there we saw a parade that could be defined as a blend of several Spanish designers. Want to see?
The intense morning parade started early on a rainy Barcelona but not cold, so we left the press room of the beautiful Gothic Plaça del Rei. There we could enjoy the presence of the French designer Pierre Cardin, who previously offered to the parade, a very strange press conference, as his translator was disappointing. But this is only a curiosity. By the way, gave us a spectacular book titled Designer: 60 years of innovation.
Visionary designer, entrepreneur and producer exemplary cultural, Pierre Cardin began as an apprentice tailor in Saint-Etienne. In 1945, already in Paris, works with Paquin, Schiaparelli and Christian Dior. Starting in 1953, and has collections perfectly cut, combining creativity, courage and sense of detail.
Entering the parade, it was very surprising for its future, away from the typical classical teacher. I think even he himself was very surprised at what I saw ... and that is that I remind you that the creator has 89 years and therefore a team of their samples.
Under the name of l'Imprevu saw the futuristic vision of the firm. On the one side with sixties-cut dresses that reminded me proposals Agatha Ruiz de la Prada. original difícles to look flashy and with details of gums and large buttons. And all in bright, cheerful colors like red and fuchsia.
My favorite and least wearable, these summer skirts rigid
The most classic line consists of dresses too serious, typical of French classicism. Suits tailored jackets and pencil skirt or pants.
And in this section was given especially the hats. The dominant colors are brown, green and black.
The white and black, a combination that never fails and one of the most classic of history, the proposals did not miss more feminine.
Best of the sample were mini-dress party with a single star: the loop. Sophisticated designs, feminine satin and polished. Miguel Palacio remind me right? So I commented earlier in this post that in each line was something different Spanish designers.
The important thing is talent. The gateway is the one that sets the trend, not Zara.
Surprise was the face of all of us in the parade with the most striking proposals, futuristic wearable and so original little ... that we never could have imagined that we would be able to see a sample of this gentleman. But fashion is art and these creations are.
Proposals that want to transmit values as the illusion and hope, and above all the courage to face all that unpredictable.
At the end of the parade, Cardin gave a lecture in the Chapel of St. Agatha to a dozen students selected by the fashion design schools in Catalonia, where the designer shared his ideas and proposals to the young talents in fashion.
