MADRID, Sept. 4 (Xinhua) -- Overall, it would be fair to say that the 56th edition of the Mercedes Benz Fashion Week in Madrid has been a reflection of the times and especially the economic times that we live in.
Although there have been some exceptions, such as the collection from Victorio&Luccino, which took its inspiration from the traditional Chinese Changshan with strident, bright designs of blocks of color or flowers and the typically flamboyant, display of Agata Ruiz de la Prada, which looked like a visit to a sweetshop.
You can't fail to see it at the catwalk whenever an economic crisis hit. For that reason many of the proposals on view in Madrid saw collections that were approachable, simple and comfortable.
The emphasis was on tradition and classic lines and also classic colors such as rose, turquoise and autumnal colors, or course with a fair amount of white and grey, colors that never go out of fashion.
