The eternal values of the Madrid fashion consultant Barbara Martelo
Madrid stylist and fashion consultant Barbara Martelo collects masculine jackets, high-heeled shoes and tight jeans. The ability to effectively combine male and female motifs made her a streetstyle star.
Before working on my own business, I worked as a fashion editor in Spanish Vogue. Today I work with brands as a fashion consultant – I help them to develop collections.
About the wardrobe
I was lucky: the work of the stylist gives access to the collections of almost any designer. I always had a very clear idea of how I want to look, so choosing clothes for me is a natural process, and my wardrobe is always orderly and organized. I would call my style classic, albeit slightly masculine. Most of all I love strict jackets, jeans and shoes on a hairpin. Basically I wear black, but sometimes I add red, blue and blue. My great weakness is animalistic prints.
About Saint Laurent
I have a lot of Saint Laurent outfits. Creative Director of the House Anthony Vaccarrello is my old friend. In the first meeting I saw him as a talented designer. Anthony does not just smell the DNA of Saint Laurent – he gives the brand collections a special gloss. His work is both sexual and masculine. That’s what I need.
I go in for jogging, yoga and boxing – sport allows you to maintain emotional balance and physical balance. I train daily, regardless of the schedule and location. On trips I wake up earlier than usual to find time for sports, – only so I can start a working day.
About the body
In fashion magazines usually show slender, smart girls, and many feel that this is the gold standard. I categorically disagree with this. The main secret of beauty is the harmony of appearance and your sense of self.
