BIOGRAPHY

Lebor Gabala is the professional endeavor of Maite Munoz, who learned the trade from pioneers of the fashion industry in this country such as Pedro Morago, Rap Diffusion, or Mila and Tucho Balado, and after some years in Ibiza, where she designed her first fashion collections for Ad Lib, decided it was time to settle in Barcelona and launch a dream.

 

A lovely sounding name and was her first statement. It is the translation of Leabhar Ghabhála Erenn, a set of Gaelic manuscripts of the eleventh century which recount, with a blend of history, mythology, legends and folklore, the founding of Ireland through the ages. The fantasy of the stories and the fact that Ireland is so closely tied to the wool tradition, made her decide to adopt the phonetic title, which is pronounced Lebor Gabala in Spanish.

 

Lebor Gabala was born as a collection exclusively of knitwear and gradually silk and cotton fabrics, embroidery and patterned prints were introduced in order to round off a proposal for a total look.

 

The finest materials are chosen in search of the highest quality. For knitted fabrics, yarns cashmere and silk, cotton and linen, alpaca and superfine Merino wool is selected; for the flat fabrics, silks and velvets, voiles and batiste, linens and cottons.

 

COLLECTION - ALL FLOWERS IN TIME BEND TOWARDS THE SUN
The title of a Jeff Buckley’s song summarizes the spirit of the LEBOR GABALA new collection for Autumn-Winter 2016. A mixture of tenderness and optimism that clearly defines two silhouettes: one contemporary and active based on materials such as neoprene or mouflon; the other poetic and delicate with overlays of chiffon, knit and velvet.

 

Flowers are the pattern of the collection. All climbing up in search of winter sun. On the chiffon with gold threads garlands and eastern borders grow; Liberty flowers on the wool; and pajamas and dresses are invaded by lilies, carnations and roses.

 

The color is deep and intense, and materials are the best possible: wool, extra fine merino’s wool, silk and cashmere. The novelty: linen with wool.

 

Because in winter, more than ever, all flowers are in search of the sun.
