This week has taken place the 080 Barcelona Fashion, the city’s fashion week. Two days ago I attended the catwalk to watch -for second time- Lebor Gabala, the name that Spanish designer Maite Muñoz gave to her women’s fashion firm. Since I first knew about her, I felt so attached to her creations because of one thing we share: true love for knitwear.
A brief bio – Lebor Gabala has already run more than 20 years of timeless garments and demonstrating that yes, it is possible to build full knitwear outfits. Strong conviction I share! Looking back at the latest collections, you feel the subtle creative evolution from season to season that opens the possibility to merge all the pieces that Maite has conceived and build a single wardrobe based in the softest knitwear garments and the most effortless gowns that pray for an everlasting Mediterranean summer, even in winter. As the official bio says, Lebor Gabala is ‘a true reference point for women who appreciate good design and quality‘. No doubt this is one of the slow-fashion brands that you could invest in.
Six months after the show, I’m still fascinated by this upcoming summer’s collection. A full inspiration story to wear the light blue shirtdress.
Lebor Gabala A/W16
The new collection for A/W16 brings back the flowers from the last season, transforming the summer’s hibiscus into liberty flowers, lilies, carnations and roses. I don’t consider myself a flower-print girl, but instead it’s the combination with the cosy knitwear and the deep and intense color palette what makes me love Lebor Gabala.
Here’s what I wore to the show: my favorite coat – the pink one from Vanesa Lorenzo, a Zara jumpsuit (gonna talk about my thing with jumpsuits soon, seriously), and my Nike Juvenate – the comfiest choice for walikn around the city and still stay chic.
