Lebor Gabala is the professional endeavor of Maite Muñoz, who learned the trade from pioneers of the fashion industry in this country such as Pedro Morago, Rap Diffusion, or Mila and Tucho Balado.
A lovely sounding name was her first statement. It is the translation of Leabhar Ghabhála Erenn, a set of Gaelic manuscripts of the eleventh century which recount the founding of Ireland. The fantasy of the stories and the fact that Ireland is so closely tied to the wool tradition, made her decide to adopt the phonetic title, which is pronounced Lebor Gabala in Spanish. Lebor Gabala chooses the finest materials in search of the highest quality.
Data of interest
Lebor Gabala's autumn/winter 2020 collection is a tribute to ethnic groups and their textile traditions in the production of outerwear and blankets with ancient techniques. In this sense, it is represented by geometrically shaped jacquard, which was an essential piece in some communities.
Elaborating on the jacquard technique, we also find a two-tone flower pattern that imbues the collection with a casual look in the case of ponchos and coats. As usual, the knitwear takes centre stage: cashmere, baby wool, alpaca and silk are starring in all their versions. A sweet colour range predominates, where ecru and off-white stand out. Khaki green, navy, brown and anthracite grey complete the winter colour range.
The trendy touch can be found in the camouflage print, decontextualised from the masculine domain, and in terms of thick fabrics, oversized sweaters with braids are a must-have for this season.
