Collection: Couture Maladroite

Alumno/a: Vicente Paolo Chulia
Area: Fashion

Couture Maladroite is a collection for men and women inspired by the designer’s story: the tale of a boy who felt different until he found a way to express himself through creativity. His French and Valencian roots shine through, and his inspiration is drawn from art, graffiti, and the nightlife culture, all of which have shaped his life. 

Some of the collection’s special features include a fresh take on classic tailoring where tartan and pinstripes are transformed thanks to bright colours and trompe l’oeil effects, all specially printed and adapted according to each pattern. Thanks to this technique, Paolo is able to create illusions in his designs:  striking volumes, fictional textures, fake pockets, button holes and creases. The feminine outfits call the traditional fallas costumes to mind, with ornate brocades and large volumes.
