....When I arrived this morning at the Atelier, the sunlight filtered through the large glass windows, and gilded the delicate original pink velvet sofas while in the background were the first notes of Feels Like a Child by Devendra Banhart. This morning, upon entering the atelier, the sculptures seemed to whisper good morning. Sculptures, yes. They are everywhere. Like guitars and paintings, hanging and not hanging, books and clothing.
It smells like burnt coffee and on the living room table, wine glasses, obviously remnants of yesterday's party. The dried flowers in the vase are just another example of the beauty of the chaos that reigns in Calle Conde de Romanones 5.
I've been several days thinking about this first post, looking for the right way to approach it. Trying to find the best way to introduce Los Pecos Mutantes, and the Fortuny painting hanging on the wall knows it well and is all seeing.
Maybe I should talk about Florence, that wonderful city that was witness to the creation of the firsts LPM designs. Florence, with its Renaissance facades and its imperfect pavements. Florence, with its decadent beauty, invites you to dream and along with the love, music, art and fashion established the basis for LPM's birth.
Florence, that has passed the baton to Madrid. To Madrid, with its frenetic pace and that special light that absorbs you and makes you feel like home. That's it, because now Madrid is their home, their present, their future. Madrid with its old town, refuge of artists and creators, refuge of Alex and Mia.
Mia, to who i hear clattering down the long corridor. Mia, who has a light italian charming accent, very long long legs, and platinum blonde hair. Alex, who changed the drumsticks for the brushes and the chisel. Alex, who is not just an sculptor and painter but also designs the combinations of impossible prints.
Alex and Mia, Mia and Alex, who created from love and chaos of Los Pecos Mutantes, a parallel universe in which to escape, in which to be oneself, dream and enjoy the beauty of life. Is not just a label, LPM is a lifestyle.
Because of that, ladies and gentlemen, stay tuned because this has just begun... .
