In May of this turbulent year, Paloma wool charmed the fashion world with their “virtual runway,” the result of a call-out made on Instagram to anyone willing to sport their Paloma Wool garments and turn their garden, porch, verandah, bedroom, or living room into a runway. The light-hearted spirit and inclusive attitude behind the initiative helped further consolidate Paloma Wool’s dedicated online community of creative people—largely women—around the world, such that the label has withstood much of the economic pressure of the COVID crisis.
This most recent instalment of the ongoing project from the Barcelona-based label shows us how the label amassed such a close-knit following in the first place. Whether delicately evocative graphic prints or knitted psychedelic swirls, Paloma Wool always seem to find a way to weave a gentle sense of wonder throughout their pieces. The new range presents us with a selection of the label’s coveted knitwear items, silky lyocell tops adorned with intoxicating patterns, vintage-inspired pants, and more, all made in Spain and Portugal from the highest quality alpaca, wool, lyocell, and, of course, organic cotton.
Paloma wool have proved their aptitude in working with a broad variety of materials. Looking at any given denim piece from the label, it’s clear as to why denim has only made relatively infrequent appearances in the Paloma Wool catalogue, such is the level of quality and attention-to-detail of each garment. Paloma Wool only use denim when it contributes to the label’s unique vision.
The Milla Denim Jacket evinces the distinctive approach to denim that the Spanish label has consistently pursued. Cut from high-quality indigo denim, 20% of which is recycled, this short denim jacket features a laser-printed all-over seasonal logo pattern. This boxy-fit piece also features front button closure with branded buttons; pleated cuffs with branded button closure; horizontal back yoke; two patch pockets on the front; horizontal front yoke, with two pockets at the seam; and a classic collar.
