JJ Valaya FW 2022-23

 Titled ALMA

 The collection is inspired by Spain.ALMA (Meaning ‘Soul’ in Spanish), coincides with his thirtieth anniversary, the couturier additionally picked up easy nuances and motifs from throughout his collections of 30 years. And have merged them with this season’s assortment to create an all-new spectacular collection.

 Highlights

 JJ Valaya’s three constant expressions (Royale~Nomade~ArtDeco) finds their soul mates in three diverse yet well-known facets of Spain, namely:

1.       The costumes of the Matadors (Matador de Toros)

2.      The motifs on the Manton shawl (Manton de Manila)

3.       The patterns of the Hand Fan (Pericon)

Luxurious fabrics, elegant details, inspired prints and of course, and timeless embroideries define this season’s couture collection in all its glory as it transcends its journey blending our ethos with that of Spain.

 JJ Valaya

“Every year, for the past 30 years, my inspirational journeys start somewhere deep in my soul and are triggered by something visual that was arresting …this is where I start my research, dwelling on the visual treasures I chance upon either in books or through travel. The history of this season’s inspiration, Spain, goes back to over a million years back and this is not the first time that I’ve been inspired by this magical country. But how can one fully and creatively explore any things that has such a vibrant past in just one collection!”
