Madrid fashion week: Roberto Verino spring summer collection 2012

Roberto Verino has been commissioned to inaugurate the 54 th edition of the Madrid Fashion Week with his Spring-Summer 2012 Collection in which the care of nature, sustainable growth and ecology remain high and become a source of inspiration.

The evolution and peak of the new eco-tourism where vacations are the excuse to make contact with nature, other cultures and other ways to see the world is the theme of the collection. Travellers arrive at their dreamed-of paradise, places with remote cultures, to enjoy the fantasy of the moment - leisure, beach, excursions, hotel evenings, parties and glamour.

Travellers wear artisan looks made of such natural fabrics as linen, cotton, silk and all complimented by unique accessories hand-crafted locally to add exotic and exquisite detail to each garment.

Beach, nature and sun are the protagonists of the eco-chic style which is characterized by garments in harmony with the environment, personal and bohemian, with a romantic touch referencing the counter-culture styles of the 60´s and 70´s whose muses were Linda Mc Cartney, Nico and Mireille Darc.

Jon Kortajarena and Carmen Kass have been the stars of a runway in which fashion and nature are reconciled to make the trip a journey through the senses.



The arrival is a welcome to Paradise. Suits in Chanel-like fabrics with pearlized finishes.


Comfortable travel trenches in rustic linen and printed dresses.


Soft and light tunics in silk chiffon.


For him, comfortable and easy suits in tones of beige and camel. Suitcases, Trolleys and travel bags are the star complements.



Relaxing, bohemian moments in perfect surroundings. Hand-knits and distressed leather. Long dresses in airy chiffon that capture the colors of the environment: earthy ochres, camel and mother-of-pearl from a sandy beach and the flowers of a hidden forest.


Triquinis made with paillettes and studs: boldness and sophistication. The turban, a must.


Men live these moments of leisure and relaxation with comfortable and fresh hand-knit sweaters and cotton and linen shorts.


Hotel evenings

Provocative, chic and playful. The hotel lounge opens up like a nocturnal flower, extravagant, black and gold.


Glamorous garments on tanned skin. Dresses and jackets with sensual asymmetrics.


Striking transparencies in chiffon, gazar or tulle. Sparkles of gold illuminate the moment.


For him, exotic, elegant suits in fresh linen
