Styles: ColorOptimist by Manual Mon and Gonzalo Zarauza, Spain

“We baptized our fifth collection with a strange word that, of course, is not academic at all. We love breaking the rules so… here’s ColorOPTIMIST!"

It seems we are starting to leave behind a gray period -a dark gray that seems almost black. It has been a very sad time for humanity. The whole world has been shaken as if a tsunami had reached the planet from top to bottom. A virus, one of the smallest known forms of life, has plunged us into total desolation and has exposed the miseries of human beings: selfishness, classism, aporophobia and, especially, inequality among our peers. Despite this, in 2020 there were also flashes of optimism, solidarity, understanding and respect between people, but was it a mirage?

Perhaps the pandemic has been a necessary turning point to look inward and start a catharsis that makes this a better world. The arrival of vaccines has provided a glimmer of hope. Hopefully, from 2021 onwards, that gray storm that invaded us will turn into a rainbow of vibrant colors, that move us and remind us of the joy of living, but of living in a more egalitarian and respectful society with humans and the planet. This is our inspiration from a conceptual point of view.
