The most casual and comfortable air, starred in Pablo Erroz’s collection, and Paloma Suárez was inspired by the glamorous 70s to create her new collection.
During the third day of Mercedes Benz Fashion Week Madrid on the catwalk, a struggle was held between comfort and the grandeur of garments worthy of the red carpet.

Duarte put the rupturist point to the day, presenting vinyl pants and jackets, combined with V-neck shirts, in the purest 70s style. Teresa Helbig paid tribute to Anne Boleyn and the women of the English Tudor crown with elegant and subtle fabrics, while Isabel Sanchís played with textures in her characteristic garments using pleats and paillettes. To close, the L’Oréal Paris show called ‘Show your worth’, defended diversity on the catwalk and put the finishing touch to a day full of unique proposals.
