Here are the designers of this year’s 080 Barcelona Fashion Week

From introspective collections to the definitive wardrobe for a weekend on the slopes: here are the designers who caught our attention at last week’s event.

Whenever we hear about an up and coming designer, there’s nothing we like to do other than scour their freshly polished lookbooks. However, since its inception, 080 Barcelona Fashion has done this for us, with this year marking its fourth digital edition, choosing the Barcelona Museum of Contemporary Art (MACBA) as this year’s main set. With fascinating new collections from the likes of the familiar Reveligion and The (Real) Garcia, along with striking new attitudes from the likes of Menchen Tomas, this year’s event was undoubtedly one we won’t soon forget.

So, for a look at the action you may have missed, go below …

Menchen Tomás

During that awkward transition between WFH wardrobes and appropriate office attire, many of us wanted a collection of clothing that fulfilled the benefits of both: providing comfort while maintaining a presentable and, above all, trendy look. It was this concept that gave birth to OLD MONEY, Menchen Tomas’ latest collection. Drawing unique fabrics and cuts straight from the tennis courts, the maxi slip dresses feature a diamond-shaped mesh. Elsewhere, feather-trimmed headbands are paired with vibrant flared trousers, contrasting extravagance and effortless comfort. Throughout the collection, designer Olga Menchen combines the elegance and status of formal wear with the comfort and ease of sportswear, creating a wide range of looks to wear to the office, to a sunny rooftop bar or to home when you need your personal fashion fix.

The (real) Garcia

Later in the day, The (Real) Garcia arrived armed with a whole new perspective, turning their attention to the outdated formalities of menswear. The (Real) Garcia has given high priority to comfort within its garments, opting for oversized cuts and balloon silhouettes to allow for freedom of movement. Maintaining an element of authoritative uniform, many of the ensembles had an air of sophistication, while their updated relaxed cuts ensured a slightly more modern and urban cut.

Revelation

Providing an extraordinary sight, Reveligion unveiled its provocative and fierce collection titled Parallel Lines. Forming a capsule of noisy garments for women, the exaggerated tulle skirts and voluminous turtleneck tops keep volume as a running theme – an ironic play on the outdated narrative that a woman must remain tame and invisible. Although many of the dresses exude a fairytale touch, the traditional silhouettes have been radicalized to celebrate the importance of feminine expression. Between the pieces, we see towering hems, missing linings and fabrics that expose the nipples – a powerful comment that claims the female body and voice and returns it to its rightful owner.

Eñaut

Marking a moving start to the second day of the fashion week roundup, we have Eñaut, who returned to the Catalan show to pay a heartbreaking tribute to the environmental catastrophe caused by the Prestige 20 years ago, an event that caused more than 21,000 tons of oil. pour into the sea. Elements of panic and reflection are seen throughout the color palette of the pieces, which for the most part consisted of black, white and / or red. With sinister black paint dripping through clothing, as well as covering each model’s bare fingers, symbolizing the role humans played in the disaster.

Yolancris

Proving a firm belief that there is the devil in the details, Yolancris has launched into fashion week with a handcrafted collection that boasts the allure of exclusivity and the soft touch of luxury. From intricate embroidery to textured satin items, the entire collection can be considered a true reflection of the pleasures of haute couture. Using fabrics such as leather and velvet, the designer is guided by materials to build pieces that reflect the individuality and charm of the 1960s.

Lola Casademunt from Maite

Concluding the second day of fashion shows, and doing just as opportunely for our roundup, Maite’s Lola Casademunt transported us to the mountains with their elegant capsule: Aspen Glam. With soft avant-garde trappers, emblematic co-ordinates and snow-colored moon boots, the whole capsule is as fun and inviting as a weekend at Aprés Ski. Injecting high-end fashion into practical clothing, Maite’s Lola Casademunt inspires all of us to challenge new heights and environments in style and, in turn, makes us book our flights for a weekend on the slopes.
