As many of you know by now, Spain is one of those countries where you can find unendless creative talent; in every corner there are ten fashion designers, six graphic designers and probably a photographer going all conga and praying to heaven for job opportunities. That’s why, filled with good taste and working capacity (treats that in case of events and festivals are scarce), we got a new edition of South 36.32N, another chance for those artists and creators to show what they’re capable of. It will happen in Cadiz (Southern Spain); lots of sea breeze and fried fish to enjoy shows by designers like Timo Zündorf (Antwerp), Pedro Covelo (Barcelona), Juan Carlos Pajares (Madrid), a showroom with pieces by, for example, Beatriz Peñalver (Granada) or Airova (A Coruña/ Paris), music by Grebnellaw (Stockholm) and talks by Topacio from La Fresh Gallery. So, yeah, we’re all meeting in Cadiz from the 25th to the 27th of June, right?
You, beloved readers, know that in La Monda we are honest people that aren’t easy to cajole with a few cocktails and some sweets (at least, not for this). And that we always tell you our most sincere opinion. In this case, a very positive opinion. Yesterday we had the opportunity to go to the Pretty Little Thing online store new collection launch party held at the Disco Club in London, where we had a preview of their new clothing pieces. Inspired in the 90s decade and mixing it up with a punk twist, we saw lot of long dresses, studs, sequins and velvet and all designed to be really stylish (heaven of hipsters, Dalston is cheering!). But, above all, what caught our eye was the affordable price of the items; let’s face it, we are all very cool, but also rather poor. So, totally up for it. The funny moment of the night happened when we were apparently surrounded by X-Factor celebs and our Editor, due to her absentminded general tendency, didn’t even notice.
