Alejandro Gómez Palomo, better known as Palomo Spain, is one of the greatest representatives of Spanish fashion outside our borders. His designs have in love with great artists like Beyoncé, Madonna, Miley Cyrus, Rosalía and, more recently, Chanel, who represented Spain in Eurovision with a dressmaker’s design with a suit with 50,000 hand-sewn Swarovski crystals.
New York Fashion Week was his rise to international fame and, after 3 years of absence, the designer returns to the New York catwalk this monday february 13 to present their new autumn-winter 23/24 collection The Closetas he has announced on his social networks.
We can see this return to the catwalks through the official website of Palomo Spain at 17:00, Spanish time. Although it has only shown two photos (one of a striped pattern and the other a detailed shot of some briefcases), we can say that it will be a very intimate collection full of colour, especially in pastel tones.
The last time we saw his designs on the catwalk was in the ‘Menswear’ collection of autumn-winter 19/20call 1916 and inspired by the moment when the Russian Ballet went from Russia to Spain, when Sergei Diaghilev and the Spanish avant-garde came together and created mixed and unconventional pieces. “Ballet has a lot to do with traveling, riding in a caravan. We continue with this attitude,” said the designer.
One of the most famous collections that the Spaniard has presented at New York Fashion Week has been sexual object, which, through its designs, told the story of a boy who goes to a brothel to choose another. On his website, he also adds that the story behind the collection is inspired by some point in the future, in which Alejandro Gómez Palomo portrays the profiles of different boys exploring sexuality from four different roles…
Although it is a ‘menswear’ collection, it has also made women like Miley Cyrus fall in love, who for her video clip Malibu wore one of these designs, a white jumpsuit with peplum and ruffles at the neckline. The designer thanked the singer on her Instagram account: “Miley, we love your new video. Congratulations. You look beautiful with your Palomo look.” A few minutes later, Miley Cyrus herself responded with a brief and heartfelt “it’s my favorite look.”
