Who has not dreamed awake with running away out of the city to a tropical paradise in which we can rediscover the vital relationship with nature? At the same time as the spring gets closer this collective wish is shown in the fashion that dresses itself of colors, shapes and textures of the longed Eden to bring up to the urban outlook.
The materials and ethnic prints are back, it is possible to wear in the clothes colors as bright as the plumage of an exotic bird and the proportions of the cut acquire the volumes of the primitive shapes. All to contrast with the excess of civiliza- tion and technology that overwhelms us and like this to return to the roots of life.

Birds of Paradise
The color is food for the spirit, and even more if it evokes paradisiacal landscapes where nature discovers the most vibrant tonalities: turquoise blue, yellow lemon, amethyst or lighten red are some of the protagonists.
Audacious contrasts will be inserted this season, especially in the floral prints that this year is more vivid and feminine than ever.
The exchange of abstract forms and sculptural volumes are conductive threads in the cut. The uneven tops, the extremely narrow pants (pencil pants) or too wide (palazzo) or the balloon skirts, among other styles, are a sample of this exploration of proportions that take an architectonic character. This stylization extends to the accessories: the shoe has an epical importance in the shapes of the heel, along with the mega-collars and the bracelets of big size.
As a counterpoint with the natural and the autochthon the metallic shades appear with their usual futuristic subtext. The glimmers of the silver, the pale and pink gold, as the great favorites of the next seasons, are applied in garments and accessories. In a more subtle way, the brightness of the metal hides under degraded ranges of pastel or in the plastic reflex of the patent leather.
