Before looking at another Spanish girls’ fashion indulgence on my part (Carmen Taberner, based in Zaragoza), look at the video to get you in the mood: the outfits might be Harrods quality (and price – it does sell the brand): but they are seriously good fun:
…..it’s very simple: the tops of the dresses are relatively tight-fitting, while the skirt part is short and full – perfect for swirling and twirling…
It’s going to be a two-parter, because this collection (SS 2015) – and in particular the promotional campaign that went with it – hang together visually, and involve a single group of models that appear in different outfits and combinations – and for once in a blue moon the brand even indicated some of the girls’ first names on Facebook (but not on Instagram – and the home site was down for maintenance at the time of writing), so I’ve added them, where given:
……the last one showing the exquisite details the outfits display: not to everyone’s taste, but as we’ve seen with Spanish girls’ fashion, there’s a big market for high-end styles – and they’re determinedly old-fashioned, traditionally well-made, and conform to a concept of girlish femininity that has all but disappeared in a lot of other Western countries.
I particularly like the anonymous photographer/stylist’s visually unifying (‘shopped) coloured backgrounds – and the clear sense of excitement and pure fun the girls were also displaying in the video: lots of genuine smiles, lots of movement. The second post will show similar high-end styles, but presented with very different, more traditional photography – still utterly charming…..
