CORTANA BOUTIQUE, ART AND FASHION

By  |  0 Comments
BARCELONA | If fashion is both a design discipline as well as an art, Cortana  accomplishes them both. Cortana boutique  is located in a typical classic building of  Eixample District. Very close to Passeig de Gracia and the emblematic Gaudi’s La Pedrera, Cortana boutique has a Zen atmosphere. It’s located in the below ground level, with windows overlooking the streets. Inside, the designs delicately hung from the ceiling, emphasizing their elegant essence. photo courtesy-of-cortana-2 Cortana’s designs show exquisite elegance and personality. The finest quality of the fabrics: silk, mohair, cashmere.  The excellent tailoring and artisan finishing. Design and refined personality. The 2013/14 Autum-Winter Collection was designed as  an ode to the past, integrating futuristic elements . It harmoniously mixes opposites: The austerity and simplicity  of the shapes  combined  with  shiny materials.  Day wear items are designed to be comfortable and seductive.  Evening gowns and jumpsuits come with an outstanding elegance. Optical illusions of  a sidereal world. But also a woman that evokes the essence of feminine icons of  Hollywood ‘s Golden Years  or  the sensuality  of  the Wong Kar Wai  films. The collection flourishes in cosmic colors: blue and petroleum green, orange, and purple, with glitter effects. There’s also a spot for the always effective black and white; and prints of  galactic inspiration.

Classic and modern lines are in search of beauty, depicting sensuality through the extremely delicate materials: lace, silk  muslin, sateen, tulle, Chantilly, in  loose silhouette with artisan draped shapes.
