Palomo Spain Marries the Divine Feminine and Masculine for SS24
Presenting gender-bending garments with a hint of Adam and Eve.
Palomo Spain transported us into romantic fever dream as it showcased a sumptuous display of sensual silhouettes for its Spring/Summer 2024 collection. Designer Alejandro Gómez Palomo stayed true to his heritage, while serving up a buffet of provocative and enchanting garments for all who wish to embrace their inner divine feminine and masculine as Palomo is never shy about genderless fashion. His support is undeniable as A-listers Moses Sumney and the Clermont Twins were in the rose-filled room, witnessing the assortment of tall feather hats, satin corseted dresses, lace bloomers and denim booty shorts with heart-shaped cut-outs on the ass.
What: Palomo Spain cast the romantic red rose as the love interest for its SS24 collection as its influence was present in nearly every garment. From the bouquets in the room to rose earrings, the offering was unabashedly lovestruck as it was filled with decidedly feminine silhouettes and fabrics.
Where: For this season of New York Fashion Week, Palomo Spain treated its guests to an afternoon in The Plaza, making us truly feel like Eloise as they were surrounded by gilded walls and gold-trimmed mirrors. Roses were gifted to each attendee as the blooming flowers dominated the room, covering a fountain center piece as well.
Saw: While the brand utilized a simplistic color palette of white, black, pink and red, the garments were anything but. Feather trimmed camisoles joined sheer lace tanks embroidered with the same red roses that overtook the room. The cast was mostly male-presenting, emphasizing the feminine nature of the clothing even moreso. Denim shorts with a rear peekaboo cutout sat alongside lace bloomers and high neck dresses Frida Kahlo might’ve worn. Headpieces were a standout accessory as Marie Antoinette-like hats enlivened the runway joining elaborate rose chokers and ear cuffs, as well as one playful jumbo rose clutch. The models were not shy about making eye contact with the audience, adding to the collection’s sexual undercurrent.
Touch: Feathers, lace, denim and leather dominated the collection with ruffles also being in abundance. Palomo Spain also made subtle Adam and Eve references with the addition of vines wrapped around certain models’ arms.
Hear: The room was filled with fast-paced rhythmic instrumentals, as well as flamenco music with Rosalía‘s voice coming through at times.
Taste: Palomo Spain’s SS24 collection was one of pure decadence. From the moment, one walked in the door, they were hit with the sweet smell of roses, setting a romantic tone. Through the use of elevated fabrics and textiles, garments maintained a sense of etherealness while their apparent sensuality tugged at our heart strings.
