TONI FRANCESC SS 2012 / 080 BARCELONA FASHION WEEK

"Seekers" is inspired by migratory movements and the need to overcome a harsh environment. Nomadic people together with the elements of earth and air are the basis of the collection. The Earth because it is the place where they live and seek their path in life, and air in the metaphoric sense of freedom and mobility.

The materials fuse to create garments whose fabrics transmit a feeling of protection or the wear and tear of erosion. The colours are earthy and yellowish, like sand and stones, or red and blue like the sky.

Generous silhouettes are layered and built asymmetrically to imitate natural shapes and give an impression of well-being and protection. “Seekers” is an allegory of humanity, that lives in search of subsistence and which needs to be perpetually in motion.
