Statement accessories are always a great way to jazz up a simple and sophisticated outfit, especially those original on-off-a-kind pieces that you know are unique and not mass-produced – which exactly what Spanish label LaMotto creates for the stylish woman who likes to stand out from the crowd.
LaMotto has been on my radar for some time now. I am so in love with their amazing scarves, fabulous embellished sombrero style hats and original jewellery and accessories. Combining innovative and creative designs,often with geometric details, together with high-quality materials, the label is fast making a name for itself on the fashion scene.
This year, LaMotto, Any Méndez, Laura Motto y Concha Ramos, added gorgeous jackets with military-like details to their collections, so I decided to have a chat with the design team to see what they are planning for the coming seasons. added gorgeous jackets with military-like details to their collections, so I decided to have a chat with the design team to see what they are planning for the coming seasons.
When I think of LaMotto, I picture exceptional one-off pieces of jewellery and amazing felt hats with a touch of native Americana. This season though, I noticed some rather fab long jackets – does this mean a new direction for the label?
No. Actually, weare continuing with our line of high-endjewellery and hats, but in our search for new trends this season,we are being more daring with textiles, and we decided to offer an original line of jackets for everyday wear, in addition to our exclusive scarves and accessories. The great demand that we have received encourages us to continue expanding our collection of accessories, taking care as always in the details of our designs.
With three designers at the helm, how do you divide the design process?
We do the work together from when we first put a new design on the table. We outline the ideas that can be improved, such as the choice of materials and the colour palette, until we decide on the final design. By combining our different styles and tastes in the tonalities we ensure that our creations have the balance we are looking for.
How do you see the collection fitting intothe main stream fashion seasons?
LaMotto is always in constant movement, investigating the materials of latest fashion trends, but without following a previously defined pattern. Our inspiration is what develops the collections, offering unique products, which are original and timeless.
Do you design one collection a year or two for Summer and Winter?
We do not have marked collections; we design as our inspiration flows.This is why we are in continuous movement.
Finally, where can one buy the collection?
We are currently on Facebook, Instagram and Twitter, where our fans can follow our collection and stay up-to-date with our news.
