Andres Sarda Swimwear Norma - Wild
The last series of the Barcelona segment is inspired by Norma Merrick Sklarek. Born in 1926 in Harlem, New York, she is considered the first black female pioneer in architecture. She worked behind the scenes on some of the biggest architectural projects in America. She was also the first African-American woman elected as a member of the prestigious American Institute of Architects (FAIA). Close collaboration with the Spanish printmaker allowed freshness and light to be obtained in the contrasts. It is accompanied by a spaghetti set with each garment embellished by a small black jewel. Wild offers us a new take on animal print. It plays on colours inspired by the savannah, in a young, spirited, and unexpected version of this print.
