The latest from Alfredo Martinez Make it clear that once fear has been overcome, freedom is the next step.
The Muse mural inside the Macedonio Alcala Theater in Oaxaca witnesses how the designer broke away from his standard series-inspired formula , was able to explore new ideas by “playing with things that scared him,” such as low-waisted pants or skirts that were too short. “[I did] one look, and that look led me to another look, from one era to another,” the Guadalajara designer admitted backstage minutes after the show. It is a series where no formula suppresses the creative process and, therefore, unifies ideas from different eras and cultural moments.
Black is an obsession for Martinez, and in this collection he elevates it with architectural bows and shimmering sequins, stripes and Giraffe prints are mixed with transparencies, showing an escape from the sober palette. Later he took us to the charming ‘ which was full of disco effervescence , like the shoulder-sharp jacket and asymmetrical skirt all finished in silver. The designer’s favorite look, a light sequined skirt paired with a button-up shirt with cufflinks, perfectly captures the new mood and is sure to become a treasure in the wardrobes of the ladies who visit his boutique.
