Meet Carlos Diez - Spanish Yodzie Yamamoto and Jeremy Scott rolled into one. At least they have a common love for emoticons with the latter. Moreover, Diez is an experimenter, when it comes to the show, he is not only fond of daft punk and chooses very modern compositions for arrangement, but also allows models to go to the catwalk on longboards. And, although the fashion show of the fall-winter 2014 season began much more traditionally, the collection shown during it differs significantly from everything presented during the Fashion Week under the patronage of Mercedes Benz, not only in Madrid.
The main materials of the Carlos Diez collection are jersey and bologna; matte and shiny surfaces alternate and appear in combinations. The color scheme is also balanced: orange and scarlet duplicate brown and black, pearl gray shades off charcoal and faded green. The lineup includes both female and male ensembles, and it is not as easy to draw a clear line between them as it seems. The shirts, shorts, overalls and pullovers shown during the fashion show are equally suitable for both genders. This is especially noticeable in the jersey dresses that opened the brand's show, but the repeating patterns continue to be seen.
The circle is the main decorative element of Carlos Diez. In many things, this motive is not just a decoration, but also a symbol, the same can be seen on the T-shirt of the designer himself, who came out to thank the audience for the applause. It is a smiley, a universal carrier of positive emotions in the Internet environment. It is found in appliqués and prints, while slit patterns on the sleeves and shoulders of sweatshirts and pom-poms on knitted headdresses continue this pattern. Carlos Diez is undemanding to accessories, except for two helmets and woolen hats in different colors, nothing is offered, no bags, no haberdashery. Massive high-top sneakers were chosen as shoes for all models.
