Spanish designer Joaquín Trías presented his fourth collection at this season’s New York Fashion Week. Focused on the relationship between the TRIAS woman and fabric, the FW11 theme of DEFINITION was a reaffirmation of the brand’s perspective on luxury and femininity. Movement and fluidity was achieved through a combination of Italian silk, twill, crepe, and wool, pieces contrasted against the sleekness of Japanese synthetics. Fabrics wrapped the body in a delicate and gentle manner that did not sacrifice structure. A mix of cigar brown, metallic blacks and greys, with accents of Scottish Green, Retro Blue, and Moon Grey was a fitting palette for a collection that was modern and contemporary, but also timeless. Joaquín’s selection of fabric and design echoes his perception of the TRIAS woman as a combination of strictness, femininity, and essence that makes her stand out.
