BIOGRAPHY

Xavi Grados, Igualada 1992, graduated in fashion design from the Llotja School of Design and Art in june 2014 and was a semifinalist for the MODAFAD award of that same year. His desire is to pay tribute to the city that saw him grow up by using knitwear and leather in his pieces and employing only the finest raw materials thereby ensuring a 100% Catalan product made in Igualada.

 

COLLECTION - HÀLIT

HÀLIT is a collection inspired on the situations that test people to their limits, where the feeling of choking takes us to the edge. He seeks to represent that catch in the throat that blocks our airways and overwhelms both mind and body and we have to stop to get our breaths back. Tricot is definitely the star. Different textures thicknesses and volumes represent this oppressive feeling. They share protagonism with flat woven pieces and together they tell the story of the confusion, the double meaning. Leather is the material chosen to complement them. The void symbolizes freedom; nudity the return to our essence. Blues, grays, black and white feature strongly.
