The No fear 2020 collection is the Horses by Patti Smith. It’s a Jimi Hendrix solo. It’s Coltrane’s free jazz. It’s the summer of 1969. It’s Gabrielle Chanel’s pants. It’s Billy Elliot dancing down the street. It’s Janis Joplin live. It’s Pollock’s dripping and the Surrealist automatic writing. It’s Tina Turner’s Proud Mary and Nina Simone on stage.

With a strong 70s inspiration, the show has been accompanied with music by Nina Simone, Aretha Franklin, Tina Turner and closed by the legendary Jet’s ‘Are you gonna be my girl’. And the catwalk has been guarded by two screens with the brand’s archive footage combined with videoclips, live gigs and films that are inspiration and referent for the creative director, Yolanda Pérez. These represented moments of liberation, independence, spontaneity: from Rita Hayworth, Mike Jagger, Billy Elliot, Charles Chaplin, David Bowie, Queen, La Dolce Vita or Woodstock from 69.

Rockers, hippies… there was equality and everybody was able to have a good time and feel special. And they knew how to show it”. The referents of the creative director Yolanda Pérez come from the countercultural movements of the ’60s and’ 70s, as well as from the art world, which she captures in her collections and fashion shows. 

– The Yolancris 2020 Bridal collection No fear celebrates the concept of freedom. Freedom as individuality, as difference, as exploration. 
– No fear is reminiscent and an ode to the freest moments in history in which clothing and aesthetics have marked and created important inputs that still exists today. 
– No fear takes inspiration from the historical moments in which women have been able to feel free and have been able to show their femininity.
