About "S, M, L, XL"

 "S, M, L XL" for EGO edition is a collection marked by radical contrasts and game volumes through patterns. Salazar´s first collection of pieces based on unfinished deliberately seeking to show their "skeleton". 

A parade of texture contrasts and covers two ranges: the binomial dark blue and black tones or a delicate vanilla shown consistent with translucent white. Overall predominate color blocks with the subtle presence of an abstract pattern in white and blue. 

Skirts - made of the technological fabrics, plastic and polyester- draped pieces emerge with much movement and are a real statement of intent:  to bare the items by dragging them into their primary essence. Far from hiding - patterns and seams, which are minimized -  are shown in an obvious way creating unusual volumes and overlaps. Also the fur-metallic, rough or flexible webs, play a key role when combined with cloth and hand felted wool.The tissues involve the models in a casual intentionally, as if they had just fallen on his body.  

Easy to wear garments aimed at an urban woman, feminine and edgy. A successful debut with surprising maturity, by deep immersion in the study of the pattern and the versatility of the garments.
