Laia Garcés and Núria Martí are A couple, a brand new label from Barcelona. They were meant to work together, as Laia explained me at the last edition of El Ego, at Madrid Fashion Week. “We met the first year of the Graduate inFashion Design at ESDi, and from the first day on we started working together. We were partners during the four years of our studies and to create a label together seemed to be a logical next step. We complement and balance each other very well”.
The upcoming summer collection, which is their second collection, have some stand out pieces like this white handknitted cotton sweater. I can feel the breeze of a sunset at the beach just by looking at it! It is a very sexy collection too, with sheer garments and suggestive cuts. The blue pleated dress is a good example of that.
“We used only natural fibers, like silk or cotton” continues Laia “And we put great emphasis on creating good patterns. To make easy garments, you need a good base. We want to create high quality garments that can be used for someone that’s 18 years old but also for someone whos 40. Garments that you can use and love for a long time.”
All the pieces are made in Barcelona. They are selling some of the pieces at buylevard.com and at special sales, like in next Changing Room.●
