Manrique on the Catwalk

The veteran Spanish fashion designer Roberto Verino has presented his spring/summer collection, inspired by César Manrique, at Madrid Fashion week.

The collection, titled Island Dreams, features four of the famous fish paintings that Manrique included in his Atlantic Fauna project. The fish have always been among Manrique’s most popular works, featuring in children’s colouring books and many souvenirs.

The young Spanish model Lucía López arrived on Lanzarote in mid January for a photo shoot to promote Verino’s collection, which is described as “a homage to the beauty of a unique place and a tribute to the visionary architect who fought to protect it.”
