Madrid Fashion Week- Rabaneda Spring:Summer 2013
Madrid Fashion Week: Rabaneda Spring:Summer 2013
It was only last season that (Mercedes Benz) Madrid Fashion Week was included in the international fashion week schedule and it looks like the Spanish capital is already feeling the benefits. For me, it's really interesting to watch, though from afar, the industry developing.
Just as in London, I like finding out about the new young talents showing in Madrid. I never want to miss anything or anyone who might be the big name of tomorrow. That's one of the reasons why I really enjoyed Rabaneda's SS13 collection.
The designer seemed to be looking for a cleansing of some sort through his clothes. The first part of the show consisted of geometric prints and plays on cut-outs that referenced Rabaneda's southern roots – his influence of mudéjar architecture with a modern twist. These structured pieces were contrasted with layered ultra light silks.
The second part of the line consisted almost exclusively of black and whites – here is the cleansing. The focus was, instead, in the shapes and the construction, which was almost referencing kimonos.
