Collection: MELANCOLÍA

Alumno/a: Beatriz Baleeiro

The Melancolía collection is inspired by Brazil and the cultural mosaic brought about by immigration to this South American country. The mixture and contrast of different identities and civilizations has served as a reference to create designs that are aimed at religious, spiritual and wistful women.

Garments with large volumes generate exuberant silhouettes. Some items are made using the embroidery technique, while others feature ornate fabric work using contemporary and classic materials such as silk, organza and Spanish leather, finished with Swarovsky crystals. The collection’s designs are characterized by a limited range of colours enhanced with small details including clasps, hats and trimmings.
