Martinez Lierah, a women’s ready-to-wear brand and winner of Best Collection of 080 Barcelona Fashion Prize, was established in 2010 by designer duo Daniel Lierah and Arturo Martinez.

The duo’s Spring/Summer 2013 collection, titled ‘Sardonicus’, is said to be inspired by facial muscle spasms. Daniel and Arturo state that “Sardonicus refers to the condition of facial muscle spasms that makes us smile even when we are badly disturbed. An involuntary gesture forced upon the co-existence of two opposite realities in a single entity” adding, “An investigation on the involuntary and violent distortion of the self” when summarising the concept behind the collection.

As with all of Martinez Lierah’s work, shapes play an incredibly important role throughout the collection. Asymmetric shapes dominate the majority of the garments and the fabric has been folded and draped in order to form interesting curves that enhance numerous features of the female silhouette. Wool, cotton and leather are just three of the fabrics that have been used throughout the collection, and the duo has kept to an unusually subtle palette of black and what appears to be beige. A deep purple also makes an appearance in a handful of the pieces, much like the brief appearance of green in the duos Autumn/Winter 2012 collection.

In addition to clothing, Martinez Lierah has released a number of pairs of shoes that match the collection. Black, purple, beige and silver is the palette for the shoe collection, and there are approximately 7 pairs, some of which cover the foot entirely and others that feature simple straps and show off a little flesh, alongside a pair or two that allow the toes to peep out at the end.
