Dominnico – The fur of the futureDomingo Rodríguez Lázaro combines Haute Couture with streetwear to create a very personal mix of past and future trends, with particular focus on fur and leather
Since his first collection – presented with great success at the opening of the 2016 Alicante Fashion Week – there was no denying that the talent of the young designer based in Barcelona would attract a lot of attention.
The twenty-two-year-old amazed everyone with his “Unusual Dichotomy” dresses and coats, based on an eccentric retro-futurism that combines Western, Oriental and space-age aesthetics.
Enhanced by an hyperbolic styling, makeup and hairstyle, the items in fur, leather and precious fabrics display an impressive mix of brand-new textures, 3D details, laser cuts and overlapping materials. All the embroidery and weaves are done by hand, in a perfect blend of cutting-edge techniques and pure traditional craftsmanship.
The collections of the Alicante designer seem to take us on a metaphorical trip to the past to capture luxury and turn it into iconic and unique items destined for the future of fashion. The colours featured are fluorescent yellow, pink and the entire range of metallic colours: silver, platinum, bronze, gold.
There is already great anticipation for the launch of his first men’s collection, scheduled for October 2017.
