Palmio & Güell Lamadrid Collaboration

We present a collection of Limited Edition bags by Palmio, a Spanish firm specialized in leather accessories. The creators behind the brand are Guiomar Ozores and Guiomar Fernández-Castaño, mother and daughter.

We have created a series of 3 unique suitcases with them. They are made with striking and daring fabrics from our collections, chosen between both teams in the Madrid showroom. In addition, it is composed of very good quality leathers that use vegetable tannins and oils, making the process more sustainable.

 

Kane suitcase

At the time, the editing of “Citizen Kane” by Orson Welles was innovative due to the superposition of elements and crossed arguments. Thus, in this fabric woven velvet borders are woven on a very elaborate background, giving the fabrics a daring appearance.

 

Vecchio suitcase

Inspired by a visit to the Palazzo Vecchio in Florence, this fabric has a geometric and bold design; a jacquard that draws a small stepped border that reminds us of the battlements of the Florentine palace.

Buckingham suitcase

This bold fabric is inspired by Buckingham Palace, a palace full of light, color, and rich in ornaments. It has a geometric-modern design, decontextualized and very impressive.
