MIRIAM PONSA

Concept MIRIAM PONSA Winter 2011-2012 Collection
"Les Bugaderes” (The washerwomen)

The women who did their washing in the river, at communal tubs that were in use up to the early 20th century.

Fabrics tinged with water droplets, with drops of latex that make them seem soft, washed woollens, cottons hardened with use. Blues, greens, greys and blacks. Hand printed checks.

Pieces with exaggerated volumes, oversize coats and jackets over short skirts, multilayered items. An ancient, outdoor, austere feel, of the working woman.
