Txell Miras Nun Print.

Wednesday, February 03, 2016

Spanish fashion designer Txell Miras got inspired by Manuel Pandalis portraits and catholic nun's modest dressing motifs for her Fall/Winter 2016/17 named "Conventual".

Dressing of priests and nun's in Catholic religion is very rigid, dark and basic in fabrication while it becomes more festive and intricate in details when celebrating masses. Txell Miras was fascinated and inspired by this simplicity and decided to research, play with and reinvent the structure and patterns of the clothes or rather say uniforms which haven't been reconsidered and reworked for ages.

For the presentation purposes Txell kept the layering effect which she over-dramatized with large silver crosses and head covers on models with no make up. She added a touch of modesty with hand knitted high neck round and tight infinity wool scarves in black and white.

She used Manuel Pandalis portraits of faces, added a un head cover and priest neck collar to create dramatic black and white face print for the capes and over sized tops, skirts and jacket.

I am particularly fond of the black boxy coats and vests in with what appears to be a mix of wool and velvet mix fabrication with large square pockets.

All of the individual pieces presented are very versatile and wearable. Even though I am not a fan of low crunch pants I very much liked black, skinny suede zipper pants with braiding on the hips.

My personal favorite of the show (on top of the portrait print and suede skinny pants) were these printed structured jacket & skirt/pant suits with flap zipper pockets. This print looks particularly flattering in the form of the destructured short coat or a long midi coat which I can see myself wearing both for work and play.

The show ended dramatically as it started with church bells ringing and models lying down on the floor to listed while the rest of the defile passed by.

I was really impressed by structural details and craftsmanship in this collection which although monochrome in color was refreshed with very innovative and wearable details, gorgeous structure and dramatic portrait print.

Txell Miras Fall/Winter 16/17' show was definitely one of my three favorite shows on this event.
