La Lola Moderna by Ricardo Ramos de Leon

After his ethnic-inspired Bahebbak Morocco project, designer Ricardo Ramos de Leon is launching another ultra-creative collection paying homage to eternal femininity. Titled La Lola Moderna, Ricardo’s new F/W 2012-13 collection is a charming mixture of the Berlin twenties period, post-war vaudeville and his rich Colombian heritage. 

Inspired by the emancipation of women during this industrialized era along with artistic inspirations from Art Deco movement are some of the strong elements of the collection with historic references to the Hispanic cinema goddesses like spanish Carmelita Aubert, the argentinians Tita Merello, Goyita Herrero, Imperio Argentina and the mexicans Lupita Tovar, Andrea Palma and Dolores del Rio, all famous for their filmography during the 30's.

The result is an extravagant, almost surreal collection, made of the finest and chicest materials like wool silk, lurex, latex and recycled fur completed with corsetery by TOmTO Berlin, IC! Berlin sunglasses and elegant suede fringed shoes by Polish shoemaker Koll Ana. The colour palette is feminine and delicious, varying from pink, nude and lilac to deep purple and grey with bright flashes of gold, decorated with nostalgic japonais and geometrical prints, rich pleats and playful bows. 

The textures

Ricardo presented the Lola Moderna collection during the recent Berlin Fashion Week at the legendary Babylon cinema in Mitte area, with an impressive show supported by Polish performer Ada Fijal. The collection has already received exciting reviews from fashion critics and has gained a wide publication among major international media, listing Ricardo as one of Europe's rising fashion stars.
