Emilio De La Morena Inspired by Barbra Streisand’s 1983 Musical

Emilio De La Morena amazes us with his collection which was showcased on the 20th February at Strand.

For his autumn/winter 2018 collection, Emilio De La Morena drew his inspiration from Barbra Streisand’s 1983 Musical, Yentl, and applied its gender queer philosophy to his Iberian aesthetic.

Yentl remains radical for its challenges to patriarchy, whether in its conservative early twentieth century Ashkenazi society setting or here and now. Its spirit of defiance ad its visual codes informs the collection’s austere palette and masculine Tailoring. Fashion may not change the world but Yentl reminds us that aesthetics matter.

The color palette for this show was mainly monochrome with quite a few vibrant colors like Fuschia and Teal. I love the contrast between the tailored look and the ruffles. It creates movement in the garments. There were beading details that moved around as the model walked the runway which showed movement but in contrast to the softness of the ruffles this was harder and moved around more which is a nice contrast.
