  • Perfect (and discounted) garments to shine on summer nights

Although Psophía, the brand of which she is creative director, was born in 2016,

Paloma Vázquez de Castro

(Madrid, 1964) has extensive experience in this fashion, where she has worked practically all her life also as a leading creative of whatever it was. Hoss Intropia.

His seniority in creating and managing national fashion companies is noted in the calm, not without joy, with which he remembers the day, close-June 25 of this year-, in which

Doña Letizia made

headlines when wearing a ruffled top of your beloved Psophía.

That type of news that would alter more than one, she receives it happy but aware of

the difficulty of creating a company in Spain.

"We must never stop trying, not even today, when the effort required is much greater, even with the knowledge acquired and the great team of professionals that accompany me," declares the creative.

From the Queen, his summer favorites -that we are in it-, and, of course, from '

his philoPsophía', we

ask, and are answered, by Paloma Vázquez de Castro.

What does it feel like to get up one morning and see that you are in all the media because Queen Letizia has decided to wear one of your garments? Great enthusiasm and joy, we were working in the studio and they called us to let us know.

We did not know when or at what moment she would wear the clothes she selected a few months before and we did not imagine the enormous repercussion that

Queen Letizia would have.

decide to wear one of our shirts for a public event. We went up in followers on Instagram, the entries on our website increased ... How would you combine this summer the garment chosen by Her Majesty? She has combined it wonderfully [with white trousers and espadrilles]. It is also very beautiful loose, as it is in the photo on our website, combined with mustard, deep blue or black pants. The sleeves are the protagonists, the rest is accessory. What has Psophía that the others do not have ... I suppose we have a character of our own, we do not follow the obvious trends if they do not motivate us, we do what we like. This subjective and more personal vision makes you different because in reality you are showing your taste, the way to combine colors, to use fabrics and patterns ...In the end you reflect a part of your aesthetic perception and I think that is what the public, without perhaps knowing it, appreciates the most. You created Hoss Intropia 22 years ago: How did you feel like setting up another fashion company? Because it's my job, I like it, I enjoy doing it and I keep the team I have worked with for the last 15 years. Without them I probably would have given up, but luckily they are and are chasing the same dream ... See? Without dreams there are no future realities, and here we are struggling to achieve it. When did you decide that you would dedicate your life to fashion? When I studied, I was not sure if I would dedicate myself to the theater, ballet, film or textile design and fashion costumes. It was the circumstances and the work that I was doing that have brought me here.How did you feel like setting up another fashion company?

Two tunic dresses from Psophía's S / S 2021 collection, the garment that is not missing in the summer of Paloma Vázquez de Castro.

.

Tell us: what print can not be missing this summer in anyone's suitcase? That is very relative, it depends on the taste of each one. For me, summer helps to wear bigger and more striking prints; in our collection there are several that have been a success, Adam's rib in colors [the tunic dress in the photo above] with a pink background, the white flower with an intense green background [in the first image, together with Doña Letizia ], the deco flower which is the one that Doña Letizia has chosen. And for lovers of 'discreet charm', what better than a small mole? And in your summer suitcase: what garment is never missing? It depends on the destination and trip you make, but one or two midi tunic dresses (one of cotton and silk) that can be used during the day or at night, accompanied by a powerful accessory.Bikini or swimsuit? I love swimsuits,but I wear a bikini because it is more practical for me, I love swimming and I do not like to be all the time with the humidity in my body.A garment that you can buy today and will remain in fashion all autumn is ... It may be 'anti-fashion' but I like that the clothes are used for years. When something is beautiful and you like it, it does not expire in your wardrobe from one season to the next. Only the weather can make you use it more in winter or summer.In addition to Doña Letizia, confess your favorite 'model', that woman whom you would like to see with your clothes I like many women and they are very different from each other. I do not like to be guided by a specific pattern, the 'favorite model' is the one who knows her body, with its beautiful and ugly things, and knows how to make the most of it.Should fashion make you dream or should you have your feet on the ground? Both. Dreaming about something is an aspiration and we must have dreams to motivate us; Reality is when you materialize those dreams and achieve them. You can be a dreamer and be down to earth. Fashion has great power to define us, it can reflect our attitude, our personality, but it can also camouflage it ... Therefore I ask myself: What is a dream and what is reality?
