Trend 01: Mullet dress

The mullet or tail hem dress reappears with a more "couturish" reading than ever. This model is so called because it has a shorter length at the front and extends to lengthen at the back creating a tail effect.

Trend 02: Underwear as outwear

Long gone are the days of nude-colored underwear to create a non-underwear effect in sheer dresses, or the days of keeping them from showing above the waist. Y2K fashion has not only brought back thongs visible on the back, but also the revolution of underwear as an outer garment.

Trend 03: Surrealism

We saw it in the collections of international catwalks and we confirm it in our own: surrealism is a trend.

We find proposals from some designers that move between the artistic and the dreamlike, implicitly translating the foundation of surrealism created by André Breton: an uncensored mechanism that unmasks the reality of objects to give them another meaning.

Trend 04: The crop-classics

The lengths are reduced by half in the more classic tailoring garments, shirts or boho blouses that have traditionally found another type of silhouette and public. 

Trend 05: Pompon

The bangs and wefts to embellish the garments in movement appear denser, shorter and thicker, sculpting bodies that are impossible to disassociate from the traditional Hawaiian costumes of exotic dances such as the hula skirt. 

Trend 06: ALL ALLURE powered by GHD

Alba Aliaga, GHD Spain trainer "The time has come to be who you are and challenge preconceived ideas about beauty. A trend that mixes the influence of Generation Z with the pop-punk aesthetics of the nineties is arriving on our streets. It is about challenging what was considered "sexy" and appropriating it.
