Toni Francesc returned to his hometown to present his latest collection “Seekers”

After showing his collections for five years around the world, including New York, Toni Francesc returned to his hometown to show his latest collection. “Seekers” has been presented last week at the historic site of the University of Barcelona. The clothes have been accompanied by U.S. designer shoes Jeffrey Campbell.

‘s collection is inspired by the migratory movements and the need to survive at a wild environment. The quest for freedom and sense of identity are merged with the aesthetics of different cultures. Nomadic people related to earth and wind as basic elements are the basis of this collection: earth being the place to live and seek the path of their journey, and wind in a metaphorical sense of freedom and mobility.

Materials merge to create garments where the fabrics provide a sense of protection and also weathering by erosion. The colors are earthy and yellow like sand and stones, or red and blue as the sky. Silhouettes are broad, overlapping and asymmetrically constructed to imitate shapes of nature to get an effect of protection and feeling good.

“Seekers” is an allegory of humanity, who lives in search of livelihood and the need to be constantly on the move.
