Miriam Ponsa

    Located a few blocks off Via Laietana in the heart of Borne, Miriam Ponsa’s edgy womenswear store is a far cry from the cheaply made, mass produced highstreet shops in the centre. Hailing from Manresa, with a degree in Fine Art from the prestigious Winchester College of Art in the UK, her main inspirations draw from the Bauhaus and strong working women of times gone by. Rather poetically, Ponsa’s own great grandmother owned a thread-factory in the same location during the nineteenth century, adding to the sense of history and tradition of the store itself. The idea of fortitude and good, honest work is reflected in the subtle use of tough, durable materials in the collection. Industrial-strength woolen jackets are offset by delicate silk pieces and chunky knits, whilst clothing tags are gently carved pieces of wood, hand-sewn onto each garment. Ponsa’s clothes are designed to reflect traditional values within a modern aesthetic, using natural, layered fabrics, traditional dyeing techniques and a highly artistic approach to fashion. Ponsa’s training in fine art is evident throughout the collection, and each piece has been designed to almost theatrical effect. These pieces are unique, built to last and would be an ideal gift for anyone who appreciates understated luxury.Show lessRead more
