‘Made in Spain’: Absolutely Fashionable 2 – Ailanto

SEEN at the catwalk for MBFWM 16: Ailanto SS17.

Ailanto is a Barcelona-based fashion brand created in 1995 by Basque twin brothers Iñaki and Aitor Muñoz. They celebrated their 15th birthday in the MBFWM catwalk with another collection full of exclusive prints, figurative embroideries, geometrical shapes, a volatile palette of colours and references to avant-garde movements. Ailanto’s easily recognisable designs are defined by the big visual impact of the prints and the elegant combinations of the many different juxtaposed textures and tissues they use, to take us to their exquisite world of beauty and flair. This time they took inspiration for their prints from Monet’s garden paintings at Giverny: dragonflies over waterliles and lotus plants, monochromatic flowerbeds growing around the pond, and ceramic tile drawings covering the bottom with sinuous waves…

With stores in Madrid and Barcelona, their main international markets for Ailanto are Japan, UK, Hong Kong and the United States, as well as Belgium and Italy. Could the UK be next? The brand is not unknown here, as Ailanto has exhibited its creations at the V&A Museum and the Spanish Embassy. It has also been displayed at The Queen Sofia Spanish Institute of New York, The Cervantes Institute in Tokyo, the Spanish Embassy in New York and the Decorative Arts Museum in Moscow.
