Ailanto in MBFWM
Ailanto is a renowned fashion firm founded by the twin brothers Iñaki and Aitor. Ailanto is characterised by their unique prints, personally design by them using drawings that they translate in different fabrics’ qualities. They have an extraordinary sensibility that takes shape into their collection pieces.
On the other hand, the jewellery designer Suma Cruz who runs her firm Suma Cruz, creates in this occasion a precious, generous collection inspired by the sunflower strength.
The sunflower is the true protagonist of this collaboration with Ailanto.
Both firms have worked together in the design and creation process.
Suma Cruz’s jewellery collection is surprising and matches perfectly with Ailanto’s pieces.
Hand and wrist’s bracelets, earrings and ear cuffs that climb to the ears, chokers, short and long chains that perfectly adapt to the neck and even surround the body around the hips, rings that invade the fingers and hands….
Made in brass using the lost wax process, the pieces are made one by one in an artisanal way, inside the designer’s atelier in Madrid.
After the pieces are welded, it comes the sanding and the assembly of the pieces. The process ends with a yellow gold bath (yellow as the sun light that guides the sunflowers).
In this occasion, Ailanto and Suma Cruz present Sunflowers, a dialogue between the jewels and the garments. They talk between each other so each of them has its own place.
