Sempre alla moda
(Español) “Todo vuelve” o, al menos, esa socorrida frase la hemos escuchado decir en miles de ocasiones de boca de los expertos en moda. Sin embargo, hay determinadas cosas que nunca pasan de moda. Para empezar, la calidad de los dibujos de Jordi Labanda. Y para terminar, la majestuosidad de la Casa Batlló.
The illustrator who has drawn more stylized women in history could not resist framing one of his cartoons at Casa Batlló in Barcelona. As a good Catalan, Jordi Labanda is captivated by the beauty of this modernist gem every time he looks at it. Therefore, and because neither his girls nor their slender elegant satirical drawings go out of fashion, the unbeatable context of this illustration is inspiring us today.
Casa Batlló, both its façade and his interior has served on numerous occasions for artists, illustrators and poets, to drink Gaudi’s inspiration. The sinuosity of his forms, the mixture of colors, the exceptional textures and the magic that follows the House, are some of the reasons for the admiration and influence generated by this great work of the Catalan architect.
Jordi Labanda, one of the first illustrators who excelled in Spain at the beginning of the 2000, illustrates in his drawings feminine and elegant women, women passionate about fashion and living constantly abreast of trends.
Admire his drawings is creating a timeline of very representative breakthrough in dress of society, being the main axis style the style that never goes out of fashion.
Likewise, Casa Batlló, magical scenery of this illustration we present today, much more than a building, is a must, a unique location in the most elegant heart of Barcelona and an obligatory stop on the fashion walk of Barcelona.
