And it is that the sailor motifs that transport the sea and the sky, its characteristic applied flowers, the patchwork, the impossible giant bows or the iconic balloon swimsuit have had an exceptional protagonist: the fabric. And this is because the designer, one day before the confinement began, had fallen in love with some fabrics that the designer Jesús del Pozo put up for sale when he closed his workshop. He bought 15,000 meters that later served him to invent a collection that recycles what he already had, as a great champion that has always been of sustainability, but using wonderful fabrics that have led to his own luxurious pieces to go to a pool party , as soon as the situation allows it, to the beaches of Gran Canaria or any part of the planet.
