Elne is a fashion brand created by Elna Solans Planas. Born in Andorra, a Little country between the valleys of the Pyrenees, went to Barcelona to study fashion design in IED.
She started her work in June 2017 but did internships in a local company in the neighbourhood of Gràcia and also worked in the world of INDITEX and H&M.
Conceptual mixed with the very classic and nostalgic silhouettes is the key to her world. Her inspiration comes from Vivienne Westwood, Martin Margiela to Proenza Schouler and Celine; she loves mixing cultures, styles, history, colours, and fashion.
Everything is based on emotional things about her life, everything that made who she is; love, family, society etc. Her biggest inspiration is art and her Granma.
Feminine attitude but masculine style. Addicted to wools and cotton, the mix of fabrics is one of the keys in the collection, experiment with every kind of garments, manipulate and rescue thing from the past is also what describes her work.
Loves illustration, she expresses herself in the draws; she has de ability to summarize a whole collection through the papers. That happens also with photography, the art direction and styling is also a highlight about her. Thinking about the location, the decoration, making still life that matches the collection etc.
She is passionate about everything that involves fashion, loves working in a team and knowing new things about the world that she is into.
Elna’s work seeks to create feelings of transcendence, escape, and surrealism. To her fashion is more then just clothes, for her is art she can create.
