Tradition and folklore reign on the haute couture and prêt-à-porter runways. Esta primavera, los diseñadores rinden homenaje a la sensualidad mediterránea con los encajes, trajes de luces y clavel flores. Polka dots, flowers and the color palette that dances between the classic black, red and white, inspired by the latín tradition and folklore wobble between Sicily and Spain, two cultures practically sisters. Dolce Gabbana was the first to recreate the familiar Mediterranean air, dressing the Italian mammas and the virile figure of the Spanish bullfighter. The ruffles, polka dots maxi-dresses and heels recreate the aesthetics of the Spanish sensual woman. A Catholic tradition that modifies the classic look of the nuns playing with shawls, lingerie and lace.
Brands like Christian Louboutin, Prada, Saint Laurent, Céline and Coach have also joined this trend with Spanish accent.
