Ayer, jueves 4 de Julio de 2013, se celebró un cóctel con motivo de la inauguración de la exposición Best Hands of Spain en la Galería Loewe de Barcelona. La muestra rinde homenaje a la artesanía española gracias a una serie de construcciones realizadas por la pareja profesional Ana Domínguez y Omar Sosa, parte del equipo de la revista Apartamento, con objetos artesanales típicos de nuestra cultura.

Hace una semana, en París, tuve el placer de visitar el Showroom de Loewe para descubrir de primera mano las propuestas masculinas para la próxima temporada primavera/verano 2014. En esta ocasión, la inspiración se ha encontrado en Sotogrande y en el estilo de vida sano y relajado de esta localidad andaluza. Tonos rojos, azules y grises con prendas de inspiración marinera o vinculadas a otras actividades como la equitación.

Como no puede ser de otra manera, el material protagonista es la piel. La napa ultra-ligera  y el ante evocan el lujo de Loewe, mientras otras pieles tratadas con procesos técnicos innovadores hacen referencia a la navegación. El diseño de los bolsos acompaña la imagen relajada de la colección con formas suaves y desgarbadas. Por último, destacar las imágenes donde se observan algunas prendas de la nueva colección de H&M o el collar (diadema) de la firma de alta bisutería Sita Nevado.

Yesterday, Thursday July 4th 2013, a cocktail party was held to mark the opening of the exhibition Best Hands of Spain in Barcelona Loewe Gallery. The exhibition pays tribute to the Spanish craftsmanship through a series of constructions made by the professional couple Ana Dominguez and Omar Sosa, part of Apartmento magazine team, with typical spanish handcrafted objects.

A week ago, in Paris, I had the pleasure to visit the Loewe Showroom to discover the male proposals for next spring/summer 2014. This time, the inspiration has been found in Sotogrande and the healthy and relaxed lifestyle of this Andalusian town. Reds, blues and grays colors with sailor inspired garments or linked to other activities such as horseback riding.

How could it be any other way, the main material is the leather. The Loewe ultra-lightweight nappa and suede evoke luxury while others treated leathers with innovative technical processes make reference, for example, to the navigation. The bags design accompanies the relaxed image of the collection with their soft and ungainly shapes. Finally, note the images where there are some clothes from the new H&M collection or the necklace (headband) of Sita Nevado high costume jewelery brand.
