Dolores Cortes fashion show
Dolores Cortes is the successor of a family tradition of more than seventy years in the manufacture and design of women’s swimwear, dating back to a time before the existence of current elastic fabrics.
Taking up this tradition, Dolores Font Cortés began designing swimwear collections in the 1980s. She makes her models in her own workshop, adopting the name of Dolores Cortés as the signature of her creations, in homage to her mother. This experimental vision is evident in the firm’s swimwear, whose origins date back to the 1950s, when the designer’s mother, Dolores Cortés, designed and created these pieces by hand.
Thus begins a new stage for the designer, with the aim of assimilating fashion thinking to the technical requirements of the product, creating and designing innovative collections in which the swimsuit is a trendy product.
In this new collection presented in pavilion 14 of the Ifema as part of Madrid Fashion Week, the juxtaposition of graphics and abstract patterns stands out. The designer presented this new swimwear collection with prints conceived as painterly fabrics or textile paintings in their most luminous version, as opposed to mixtures between black and white and the play of shades of warm and cold tones , establishing a rich and varied colorimetry.
The term bath couture is present in the crochet details that adorn many pieces, which achieve a renewed aesthetic. In addition, the accessories (large bracelets and earrings) designed in resin, are colorful and complete the swimsuit look, imbued with a bohemian aesthetic through the printed scarves that adorn the hair of the models.
