Txell Miras combines photography and illustration in her f/w 2014 collection

Txell Miras is a Barcelona-based fashion designer and illustrator that has always been keen on combining both disciplines in her work. With Marcel Duchamp, Ingmar Bergman, Joseph Beuys, Franz Kafka, Gary Hill or Nick Cave among her references, Txell divides her time between Milan, where she is the responsible since 2003 for Neil Barrett´s womenswear line, and Barcelona, where she founded her namesake line back in 2004. With her innovative take on volumes and proportions and the cinematic and mysterious appeal of her creations, Txell passed from being a young promise to establishing herself as one of the most prominent Spanish designers. For her latest collection, which was presented during 080 Barcelona Fashion Week with great success, she was inspired by the captivating portraits of photographer Manuel Pandalis. Txell made a series of illustrations based on Pandalis’ work that were later printed on t-shirts with amazing results. What’s more, the catwalk was tuned into a modern gallery, with Txell’s illustrations hanging from the walls. Of course, we couldn’t expect less from a fashion designer that has experimented practically with everything, from painting and installation to short films like Ànsia i calma (2003) and Immersió (2007).

The collection, which was entitled “Portraits”, was based on the contrast between the natural and the artificial, combining wool and polyester or cotton and neoprene, and was limited to a black and white palette, with touches of electric blue and silver grey. It had also an oriental feel to it, but with a contemporary touch. Txell, who covered the models’ faces with animal masks, wanted her collection to reflect the feeling of a “soulless and cold solitude”, and her otherworldly illustrations, with their ambiguous charm, definitely played a big part of it.
