Welcome to the world of S&M by Alfredo Martínez. The show had a Matrix
vibe at first glance, with a long black leather trench coat, black leather gloves and wraparound sunglasses. Fierce and alluring, this season’s AM woman wears bold jewelry and back-swept hair, with suspenders cleverly worn in some looks for a mystical attitude. “There’s a lot of stuff from my childhood in it — I’m always excited to see supergirls, heroes, women with power,” he said. His main inspiration was 9 ½ Weeks and some Madonna sex books.
Sexiness is obvious with a blouse and a skintight patent leather pencil skirt paired with sheer black leggings and stiletto heels. Miniskirts, tailored suits and floral brocade dressing gowns exemplify the sophistication of the Alfredo Martínez woman. For those looking for youth and rebellion, exquisitely crafted strapless latex gowns mixed elegance and provocative attitude at the end of the show. The look is made of thin lace and printed spandex. The latter is a new material in the designer’s universe: “I’ve never made spandex, and we made three dresses out of this fabric. I’m glad we did.”
