Marcos Luengo is not interested in rabid fashion, he prefers the quality of fabrics and artisan techniques. “In Spain we have everything to do luxury,” says this Spaniard who chests on the talent he discovers with the workshops he works with.
With a beautiful “tartan” print, wool felt, houndstooth and mohair, Luengo has developed winter pieces reminiscent of typical English Amazons.
