All that Jazz








I've been looking for a (nice) biker jacket for years. If the leather wasn't as stiff as concrete then the sleeves were wide and longer than the bible or it just doesn't fit right. That's why last week, when my tanner called to let me know that the made to measure leather jacket I designed at his studio was ready I couldn't be happier, Im so getting everything done in leather! Anyway, I know I haven't been blogging that much lately but getting a collection of bags ready is not as simple as I thought and this season I've also adventured to do belts! This friday my latest collaboration with Davidelfin will be shown at Mercedes Benz Madrid Fashion Week, can't wait to show you! Follow me on twitter and I'll keep you posted


Llevo años buscando una biker decente. Si la piel no era dura como el cemento entonces la manga era demasiado ancha y más larga que la biblia o siemplemente no quedaba bien. Por eso no podía estar mas contento cuando la semana pasada mi curtidor llamó para decirme que la chaqueta que había diseñado en su estudio ya estaba lista, me lo voy a hacer todo en piel! Y bueno, ya se que no he estado blogueando mucho últimamente pero es que preparar una colección de bolsos no es tan sencillo como pensaba y esta temporada también me he aventurado con los cinturones! Este viernes se presenta en la Mercedes Benz Madrid Fashion Week mi última colección para Davidelfin, que ganas de enseñaroslo todo!
Sígueme en twitter y os mantendre informados!

Lost and Found













Almost a year ago I spent the most amazing, fun and well, romantic, days in the Caribbean ever.
I'm glad I took some pictures with a disposable camera because if I hadn't I wouldn't have bumped into them on a drawer and mentally travelled thousand of kilometers to the paradise to then share them with you. I know I normally talk about clothes and all that but sometimes is good to just wear a smile, and full on happiness.


Hace casi un año pasé los mejores, más divertidos y románticos días en el Caribe!
Me alegro de haber hecho algunas fotos con una cámara de usar y tirar porque si no lo huiera hecho no me las hubiera encontrado en un cajón ni hubiera viajado mentalemente miles de kilometros al paraíso para ahora compartirlas con vosotros. Ya sé que suelo hablar de ropa y todo eso... pues a veces es bueno ponerse simplemente una sonrisa y un montón de felicidad.

Feature on Harper's Bazaar










When you open one of those magazines that you buy each month and suddenly find a whole page on your latest work kind of gives you heart attack, in a good way of course. That's why I can help but being so grateful to Harper's Bazaar Spain and everyone that works hard to produce a quality magazine each month. I have to highly recommend you to get your hands on the latest issue to find the Polychromie Clutch, which limited edition of only 25 pieces will be available at davidelfin.com at the end of february. If you want to make sure you get yours still worm from the oven send an email to davidelfin-co@davidelfin.com to put your name on the waiting list. I just can't wait to see you all wearing it on the street


Cuando abres una de esas revistas que compras cada mes y de repente te encuentras tu último trabajo en una página entera es como si te diera un vuelco al corazón, en plan guay claro. Por eso no puedo evitar estar tan agradecido a Harper's Bazaar España y todos los que trabajan duro cada mes para producir una revista de calidad. Os recomiendo que os hagais con una copia del último número y le echeis un vistazo al Polycromie Clutch, cuya edición limitada de 25 unidades estará disponible en davidelfin.com a finales de febrero.

the street warrior look














I’m so refreshed with all the men’s collections for a/w12! I know, this winter is not over yet and I’m already sort of writing a wish list for the next one… Surely I’m excited that Riccardo is still using stars on his Givenchy collections and that Raf Simons is back to the boyish look but I’ll talk about all this properly soon!

Here I am, ready to take on the two weeks ahead, full of events and exciting happenings. That’s why I thought starting the week with this street version of a warrior would give me strength to safe any obstacle on the way. So for this gang-look I’m wearing a Nu Era cap, Umbro shorts, Davidelfin body, vintage gold crosses and Hermés bracelet, however, my favourite part of this look is the Timberland boots I had the opportunity to design myself, with my initial on the reed and all.

















Aquí estoy, preparado para estas dos semanas que vienen llenas de eventos y excitantes aventuras. Por eso pensé que empezar la semana con esta versión callejera de guerrero me daría la fuerza para sortear cualquier obstáculo.  Asi que para este look, del rollo perteneciente a algun gang, llevo un gorra de Nu Era, pantalones de Umbro, body de Davidelfin, colgantes de oro vintage y pulsera de Hermés, sin embargo, mi parte favorita son la botas Timberland que tuve la oportunidad de diseñar yo mismo, con mis iniciales en la lengueta y todo.

L.A.dy Dior








Yeap, this is my improvised flower vase, result from watching way too many times that fabulous Lady Dior short film with the gorgeous Marion Cotillard. The truth is always been in love with this iconic Dior bag that Princess Diana made her favorite and strolled around all over the world. Hence that this design was renamed Lady Dior under her own agreement. Yes people, not just a bag, you are in front of a piece of history, reinvented. Now watch the video it's definitely is a laugh.


Si, éste es mi improvisado jarrón de flores resultado de haber visto demasiadas veces el corto de Lady Dior (es genial!) con la impresionantemente guapa Marion Cotillard. La verdad es que siempre he estado enamorado de este bolso de Dior que Lady Di convirtió en su favorito y se paseó por medio mundo con él. De ahí que éste modelo de bolso fuera renombrado Lady Dior bajo su consentimiento. Sí queridos mios, no es solo un bolso, estais delante de un trozo de historia, reinventado. Aquií os dejo el video, aunque no hableis ingles o frances vale la pena verlo!

Grey Gardens

























I know, what am I doing lost in a garden instead of walking around Milan from show to show? Well, this is what happens when you have loads of projects in hands, you can't always be everywhere. This weekend I've spent such a wonderful time sticking shells with a glue-gun everywhere (random I know), eating pasta and disconnecting from the world.

Lo sé, qué hago perdido en un jardín en lugar de estar en Milan de desfile en desfile? Bueno, es lo que pasa cuando tienes tantos proyectos entre manos, no siempre se puede estar en todos lados. Este finde lo pasé genial pegando conchas con una pistola de pegamento por todas partes (raro, lo se), comiendo pasta y desconectado del mundo.

Stolen Girlfriends Club














Black trousers and a t-shirt might be my favorite outfit but of course, never short in details. If you look
 closer, the ranglan sleeve from this Stolen Girlfriends Club t-shirt have an haute couture-esque detail
 that made me fall in love instantly without losing that badboy look that the oversizeness gives.

Spotted shopping in Bond Street, London









After a whole morning of shopping some friends and I were off to lunch when this lovely woman called Dvora (from street-style blog fashionistable) approached me to take a picture of what I was wearing, she said she was captivated by my style and after the short interview I was captivated by her: She actually asked me about myself, my inspirations, my qualities... and well, of course my clothes. Have a look a it by clicking here. Hope to bump into you again soon Dvora!


Después de una intensa mañana de compras, unos amigos y yo íbamos de camino a comer cuando una mujer encantadora llamada Dvora (del blog street-style fashionistable) se acercó a mi para sacar una foto de lo que llevaba puesto, dijo que se sintió cautivada por mi estilo y después de una corta entrevista yo estaba cautivado por ella: Me preguntó por mis inspiraciones, mis inquietudes, mis cualidades... y bueno, mi ropa también. Echa un vistazo haciendo click aquí. Espero volver a verte pronto Dvora, fuiste encantadora!

Everything goes my way



















Wise up, run, this year do all those things you always wanted to do. Smile on the way and don't let
 yourself contaminate by negative people. Life is beautiful and this is going to be a bright year.
I want to learn, work and play at least double as last year. Ready, steady, go!

Espabila, corre, este año haz todas esas cosas que siempre quisiste hacer. Sonríe por el camino y no te
 dejes contaminar por gente negativa. La vida es bella y este va a ser un año brillante. Quiero
 aprender, trabajar y disfrutar al menos el doble que el año pasado. Preparados, listos, ya!
