||Pedro del Hierro Madrid is back in New York City to present its Fall/Winter 14/15 fashion collection. Carmen March, Creative Director of the brand unveiled her new work at the EYEBEAM Atelier, located in Chelsea.
“More than anything,” Carmen March, the Creative Director of Pedro del Hierro Madrid, explains, “it was a feeling of hope that inspired me”. While she was designing this Fall/Winter collection, March was also re-reading Carmen Laforet’s classic 1940s novel, Nada. The book’s first chapter, describing the heroine’s arrival to Barcelona on an evening train, struck a chord. “Those opening pages are filled with a powerful yearning for a new beginning after the suffering and privations of a long Civil War–one can’t help but be moved by that desire.” It’s hard, notes March, to avoid drawing parallels with today’s Spain, where after years of a strong economic crisis, an exhausted population may finally be beginning to allow itself to hope that the worst might be over.
