A love letter to all the women in his life that have influenced him in every possible way.

Since he was a child, he has been nourished by the female figures around him composing his main inspiration source.

From the grace to the guts, he has created a character that embodies all the values transmitted by his grandmother, a muse. Lolita is a concept, Lolita is a statement, Lolita is a cry of freedom.

Following his instincts as the only rule when creating, he has developed a capsule collection full of symbols and details that pays homage to his Mediterranean heritage. From the printed recycled leather to the colour, Álvaro has kept developing his hyperbolic aesthetic to a pure form where nothing feels empty anymore.

Fashion is not just clothing, is a way of transmitting a message. Activism is key nowadays and he wants to use his voice to speak up and stand up for freedom, love and equality.
