“AIR” is a new progression in the companies`Street à Couture` approach, where lines continue to modify their formal axes to offer a message of freshness and streets full of functionality, colour and sophistication.

For this show, OTEYZA reflects on `Air' as a true vector and form creator in an exercise of constant balance, rhythm and progression.

Movement is the VOICE of form, the WORD of couture, the TRUTH of creation.


OTEYZA is also nourished by the great genius Raoul Dufy and is rubbed off on his colourful joie de vivre; the land and seascapes of the Midi Mediterraneen or by the strength and lightness of his line, marked by the subtle characterization of the form.

Splashed lines in the pieces affirm that in OTEYZA the past and the future are contemporary, that there are no time limits: the lines mark the sartorial gravity and the joy and drive of modernity.

In this season, pure lines in unstructured shapes with larger volumes, as well as pieces encompassed in a more urban atmosphere, will gain force, traced by and agile and versatile rhythm. Side slits and raised collars; sets of long volumes in trench coats and pants; pleated bermuda shorts, polo shirts and sneakers, as well as t-shirts and sweatshirts with great expression thanks to their piping, will compound the new collection, gifted with refined lines.
