Miguel Adrover confirmed with his second collection that he is one of the most creative new talents on the fashion scene. The Spanish designer clearly has an outstanding ability to identify the fashion moment, detect its undercurrents and transform them according to his unique sensibility. His presentation featured everythingfrom reconfigured garments made out of Burberry coats, Louis Vuitton purses and vintage denim to soft, feminine blouses with gathered sleeves, and strict, deftly tailored dresses with unfinished asymmetric hems. There were also functional plaid pants, chunky knits and ornate, spider-woven beaded evening dresses. The word is out: Adrover has shown that it is possible to maintain an independent creative spirit, and simultaneously produce chic, wearable clothes.
