Emilio de la Morena's fall/winter 2014 collection "delved deep into the decadent yet sinister period of his native Spain's Goyesca culture", said the press release. The runway had an installation of red beads that was meant to suggest lascivious desires and all things fetish whilst repetitive tribal beats played in the background.

Minus the first look, which might have taken fetish a little too literally, the collection showed de la Morena's technical strengths in the handling of velvet, an infamously difficult fabric to master. Some of the pieces, like the iridescent oxblood full midi-skirted cocktail number with bare shoulders neckline make rich party options. The trousers were also beautifully cut which makes one wonder if de la Morena should explore razor sharp tailoring for future collections. Known for employing "obscure dress-making techniques", de la Morena featured plastified silk to give the look of glossy rubber in line with his fetish inspiration. 

His obvious strengths not withstanding, the styling of the collection looked more like 80's prom dresses, which could have been kitsch if that had been the collection's intended narrative. But citing the Duchess of Alba, mistress to Spanish Romantic Painter Francisco Goya, as the muse of the collection might be a bit of a stretch.
