Sanchez mainly focuses in the concept of wearability and the premise that ‘art should create something that speaks curiosity’, which clearly reflects in his custom creations, his ready-to-wear collections and his accesories line.
With a love for metallic fabrics, a devotion for clean lines and being faithful to polished textures, this designer takes ‘edgy’ to a whole different level, where those of us who are more of a classic ‘kinda’ gal’ can also feel identified. There’s somewhat of a classy- edgy appeal to his work that’s simply irresistible.
Perhaps I could describe it as contemporary, originally trendy, and incredibly chic. But what a better way to define Adolfo Sanchez than to have the designer himself explain it to us:
* Adolfo, please describe the woman you design for.
The woman I design for is a strong independent woman in her late twenties, early thirties. She is modern and adventurous both in her style and her personality.
* If you had to choose 1 favorite textures & 1 favorite color to work with, what would they be?
Wool and fur play a big role in my designs, and that’s because they are one of my favorites. I like playing with them. My number one color is black because it is everything (classic, edgy, elegant)
* What was the inspiration behind your SS2012 collection?
Last season, Fall/Winter 2011, I wanted to create a dark collection that’s aesthetic was wearable for woman from east to west. This Spring/Summer 2012 collection, however, I wanted to create softer designs, inspired in the 1920’s but with a modern look to them. I used my usual dark colors combining them with pastels and always giving some edge to the designs.
* Adolfo Sanchez seems to be a household name in Hollywood. Lady Gaga and Kim Kardashian have chosen your designs. Which other celebrities would you love to see wearing Adolfo Sanchez?
If I had to pick a person/celebrity that I would love to work with i would say the always amazing Grace Jones!! I like dressing woman that are in full control of their style; when she actually wears the garment instead of the garment wearing her.
* Last but not least, Fashion Fill-in
