BERTA CABESTANY RESORT 19
Berta Cabestany is the Barcelona based fashion label blending traditional Catalan craftsmanship and heritage with the fresh and optimistic spirit of the millennial generation. By introducing innovative and unexpected materials into her design process Berta demonstrates that embellishment and embroidery can work for everyday and everyone.
Resort 2019 brings the wearer through an idyllic sojourn, from the sun-bleached shores of the Berta Cabestany’s summer home – Menorca. Taking inspiration from this peaceful, untouched Spanish destination’s roots, alongside a meditation on her hero Dali and his crustacean muses and her star signs symbol – the crab for a light, colourful fluid collection.
The label stays true to the brands core with an abundance of cross stitch embroidery featured on light linen, oversized dresses and structured tailoring. With lighthouses, jellyfish, crabs and horses displayed simultaneously along hem lines, sleeves, collars and even within finer detailing such as the buttons on the Arena blazer featuring the Portunidae hand cross stitched crabs, the beautiful craftsmanship is complemented by the rich colour palette. All of these characters feature within the embroidery marry the Spanish tradition of ‘’Jaleo’’ climax in the phrase ‘’Ara va de bo’’ a typical Spanish song played in villages in Menorca.
Brocade fabrics such as the sky blue high-waisted Pez shorts finished with a peplum hem balance the lightweight materials balancing the textures throughout. With simply charming co-ords such as the Bungalow paper white bandeau top and matching Papel culotte trousers finished with a paper bag waist line are scattered with ‘’Menorquina’’ (boat) fil coupé embroidered throughout.
Mirroring the sunlight from the shores of Menorca, the glistening water is reflected by the Fiesta cold-shoulder dress, built by multi-coloured sequins symbolising the escapism of the isle. Additional textures bring the sea creatures to life with loose, tiered ruffles adding volume to statement pieces such as the Talaiot candy pink maxi dress shaped with a down hem and cross body ruffle shoulders.
