BIOGRAPHY

Mietis, founded by Maria Fontanellas, is a reflection of a familiar savoir faire, run by three generations since 1954. After studying Fashion Design in Milan, the family leather tanning tradition brought her back to Igualada, (Barcelona) where she opened her Atelier in which top quality leather is the essence, reinterpreted in a modern key.


COLLECTION - A SAFARI TO WONDERLAND

Fall – Winter 2018 / 2019

A Safari In Wonderland represents a trip to an imaginary jungle full of wonders. An adventurous and daring aesthetic where the woman reflects through the clothing her eccentric and independent idiosyncrasy. Socialités and fashion icons like Wallis Simpson represent these ideals.
The exterior pieces such as jackets and military-inspired long coats can be found combined with glitter and metallic that accentuate the spirit more glam rock of the collection.
Volumes, rounded shapes and the application of feathers are some elements that work together, giving the pieces a sophisticated and theatrical touch. This character manifests inspirations in the scenic art and theatre plays as Ziegfeld Follies where the dance and musical interpretation put in common aesthetic values ​​that contain colourful costumes with the presence of flamboyant aesthetics, characterized by being excessively ostentatious and exaggeratedly feminine.
The collection is framed in a wide chromatic palette taking care of the balance in the application of colours that together creating a mosaic on the leather full of vitality and expression. Brushstrokes of mauves and lilacs between yellows and golds give the pieces a soul around Henri Matisse's works full of harmony.
