Ruizgalán presents his collection “New Life” at the Spring/Summer 2013 edition of Ego at Mercedes Benz Fashion Week Madrid.
He created a men’s collection whose point of departure consists of clothing items donated by friends and acquaintances. “New Life” is a combinatory experiment in which every stitch establishes an impossible link between eras, persons, styles and functions. Re-usable materials become souvenirs of a rhizomatic network of affections and the clothing items acquire new life through an architecture of broken lines and poetic volumes. In times of unemployment, economic crisis, junk bonds, fear, disillusion, impotence and uncertainty, Ruizgalán proposes an ecology of style and reaffirms fashion’s capacity to generate bright architectures and future projects.
