The international brand Nicholas K has been in charge of closing the first day of shows of the 080 Barcelona Fashion summer 2019 edition. This brand based in New York has shown its vision of a minimal, timeless and sustainable womenswear line at the Sant Pau Art Nouveau Site, a proposal aligned with the most sustainable edition yet with its cruelty-free fashion as it doesn’t use animal leathers but other natural materials such as organic cotton, linen, silk and vegetal leather.
In the morning, Escorpion Studio Barcelona has kicked off the 24th edition with their collection “Aestas borealis. Midsummer sun in the island of fire, ice and water”, inspired by the warmest Iceland: the one of the summer solstice. The brand from Igualada has presented very feminine designs for next spring-summer 2020 with bodies, kimonos and knitted microshorts, as knit is the main fabric of the collection, and the brand.

Later on, has been the turn of womenswear brand Teoh & Lea, which has presented “A country fashion song”, inspired by some of the iconic looks of the likes of Elvis Presley and Elton John. Following their usual modern and urban style, the brand has updated these fifties and sixties’ looks to present a collection with designs aimed at an independent, cosmopolitan and active woman, who wears from sporty designs to feminine dresses and cowboys’ shirts.
Maite by Lola Casademunt has been the next one on the runway with “Island’s sunset”, a fashion show that has counted with model Carla Pererya among the casting. The emblematic fashion brand has remained true to its style in this proposal inspired by the beautiful colors of the sunset: from orange to pink, turquoise, red to finish off with black. Iridescent tones, sequins and their classic animal print have enlivened the most festive looks in a collection that also presents summer prints in more casual looks.

In the afternoon, Krizia Robustella has opened the runway with “Magic Orgy”, a collection for men and women that blends comfort with luxury through designs full of color with the illustrations by Nicasio Torres inspired by graffiti.
Moreover, AGNÉS SUNYER has presented, just afterwards, a tour around the world without moving from Barcelona with stops in Rio de Janeiro, Shnghai and Los Angeles. With her collection “Els. When the obstacle is the springboard”, the designer aims at a determined, tenacious woman, who want to bright with her own light through designs in metal and knit, filled with fantasy and character.

Naulover has followed on the runway with “Bonita”, which evokes a Caribbean destination and the golden hour in a dreamy beach through a beautiful color palette that combines neutral hues with red, pink, orange, fuchsia… The brand has also used this fashion show to present its new accessories’ line featuring jewels and accessories for the feminine woman of today. In addition, the well-known shoe brand MAGRIT has also collaborated lending their shoes to finish off the looks of the models on the catwalk.
