Madrid, Spain – Inspired by the French painter Auguste Herbin, the young designer María Escoté has created a collection for Fall Winter 2017/18 that shows more maturity than what we are accustomed to expecting from her. Where we know her designs are usually inspired by pop culture and icons, this time María Escoté seems to be on a deeper, personal journey. Even though the style of the collection is still connecting to her style as designer, this time the items are more artistic and creative. A big step ahead for this young talent!
In this body of work called, L’Oisaeu, we find velvet, oversized suits, OTK boots and miniskirts as the main motives. The prints are clearly inspired by abstract art. They include geometrical color combinations mixed with a black & white striped pattern. A wide variety of colors pass through the collection from there. The palette starts with bright red, orange, blue and pink, before slowly evolving over time into darker autumn colors such as purple and ochreous.
It results in things perfectly wearable for the fashion-forward girl as well as the elegant woman. María Escoté seems to know exactly how to create trendy items. She does this while still staying close to her own style and creating something that everyone wants to wear. The overall feel of the of the work is ultimately stylish. The spirit of the 1970’s is there.
One of our favorite looks is a velvet red oversized blazer with pearl applications in combination with extremely long OTK boots with matching characteristics. It’s bold; it’s stylish; and it’s absolutely beautiful. We cannot wait till the day that we will see a daring woman wearing this on the streets. Thank you María Escoté, for making this world a more exciting place.
