In recent seasons, Paul García de Oteyza and Caterina Pañeda have had a new focus for Oteyza, the Spanish sartorial men’s wear brand.
“We’re working on connecting with streetwear,” explained Pañeda, adding that meanwhile, Oteyza continues drawing on long-standing inspirations, such as the Atlantic Ocean, fishermen’s aesthetic and art, like Nicolas de Staël’s sea works.
“It’s a progression for our house, with a very solid base in suits, high craftsmanship, quality and luxury,” continued Oteyza.
The fall collection is comprised of sophisticated yet functional garments, sometimes in saturated colors — orange and teal — reminiscent of de Staël.
A swashbuckling navy-blue Marino wool cape trimmed with white comes hooded. A deconstructed white suiting lapel is worn as a scarf. The burnt orange jacket comes decorated with rectangular white embellishments and sash, paired with a matching fisherman-style hat.
Oteyza’s fashion film features models sporting the fall looks against an entirely white background, which helps make the collection pop and gives it a dreamy aspect.
