The Matador and The Fisherman

Carlota Barrera, shows her first Mens' Fashion collection " The Matador and The Fisherman " at Mercedes Benz Fashion Week, Madrid, (Spring/Summer 2019) Wandering into Ernest Hemingway territory, Barrera produces a collection of detailed and striking costumes. From Northern Spain, Carlota trained at Central Saint Martins and Instituto Europa di Design schools.

A dialogue between the purpose of beauty in the matador costume with its marked silhouette in contraposition to the practicality of fishermen’s attire. The concept of masculinity and beauty is exalted with a certain erotic component, and both worlds merge in the detailed embroidery, representing flowers, corals and seaweed. It’s a love story between the matador and the fisherman, and also between the old tailoring and the new techniques of design and making.
