Palomo Spain’s Madcap Hunting Inspired Collection
While the Spanish designer Alejandro Gomez Palomo does not try to make an apology for this, he does find deep inspiration in the aesthetic that surrounds hunting, especially in the area of Andalucía, Spain, the homeland of Gómez Palomo. In Alejandro’s head, as well as his latest collection, the color palettes and textures reference the very picturesque Spanish landscape combined with the light and southern heat that influences the creations of the maleno designer.

In this same vein, Alejandro Gomez Palomo has been able to combine the world of the montería (Spanish term for hunting event) with modern couture. Palomo proposes this season a series of weaves and figures that contrast enormously with the proposals the brand presented last season. The silhouettes have grown in volume and weight. Inspired by those portraits of Velázquez in the court of Felipe IV, the model acquires this season a much more sober, almost magnanimous importance.

For his bags, he used fabrics closely related to the world of hunting. Leather, gazelle skins, deer antlers and many fringes and charms that remind of what the hunters would use to load larger preys.
