“There’s this dress…it’s made of gold and brocade and I really want it.”
Hailing from the south of Spain, award winning designer Rafael Lopez is today’s answer to Cristobal Balenciaga. Lopez has returned to his homeland after completing his studies in Marangoni Institute and Central St Martin’s College of Art & Design.
Lopez created this dress as part of an exquisite haute couture capsule for Atelier-Mayer, referencing Goya, Dali, Picasso, Zurbaran, Almodovar and Angela de la Cruz for a modern sophisticated look. He mixes Latin sensuality with traditional history, all the while keeping it international.
The Rafael Lopez style is “the cool of England, the sensuality of Italy, the force of Spain and the chic of France.”
