ModaFad / Guillem Rodríguez, Vulnérable
ModaFad was tasked with closing this last edition of 080, or in other words designers Guillem Rodriguez and Patricia Ferreira, the respective winners of the Summer Edition of the competition, this time around with the focus on the men's wear collection presented by Guillem which felt genuinely novel and fresh.
Rodriguez has already provided clues with his winning first edition and this time he has reaffirmed his achievement. His collection was reminiscent of an historical man, romantic and eccentric, somewhat shy perhaps and very precise. All the fabrics used for the collection are Gratacós an undeniable added value. The catwalk show invited us into a dreamlike, imaginary forest in black and white hues, where it appears to be always raining and where fantastic creatures dressed in neutral elflike attire somehow vanish before our eyes into the background.
My take away from Vulnérable is that it’s well worth following this young designer, given that with only two collections he has managed to generate rave reviews and raise high expectations. Hopefully he’ll continue this way.
