The Folklore sweater is made utilizing the technique of digital printing by sublimation. The print is a photograph of Folklore Street. This hoodie is layered over the sleeves and in the front and back of the garment as well. The entire pattern matches at all cuts and seams because of the photographic technique used. The Folklore sweater is innovative and unique, and is made  with high quality stitching.

Architectual shapes, unexpected volumes, pleated fabrics, unstructured silhouettes…RUIZGALAN places himself in a group of designers that understand fashion as an experimental activity in a visual/sculptural sense. In this case, URBE takes its insoiration from the atmosphere of European capitals.

Walking in Madrid, the designer sketched a collection divided in two different parts. The first part- grey pallete- was inspired by abstractions from several urban elements. In the second half, colour breaks in, with chromatic combinations born in the most unexpected places: building works, insulating foam, plaster, rubble, walls damaged by time and scaffoldings create amazing copper-coloured shades, naif turquoise blue nuances and bright oranges sparkles.

After these fragments from the real world, URBE ends with a picture of positivity: a cocoon outfit that shows the light coming in through the gaps of half-closed blind.

The graphic works of URBE by RUIZGALAN are inspired by the fusion of two elements: photographs of Madrid and patterns from the collection, emphasizing the importance and beauty of the creative process, and must be considered as autonomous works with an artistic language related to the fields of design, architecture and painting.
