HISTORIA STORY

La Condesa es una marca española establecida en 2010 por la diseñadora Marina Conde. Ella empezó confeccionando chaquetas para su marido y amigos hasta que, gracias a un cantante de rock, tuvo su primera aparición en la revista Rolling Stone. Desde entonces sigue creciendo, su reputación aumenta y cada vez son más las tiendas del mundo en las que vende sus creaciones.

La marca es reconocida por crear chaquetas de inspiración militar con un estilo muy personal que las diferencia del resto, pero al mismo tiempo sigue las tenden-cias con diseños originales de todo tipo en sus colecciones de temporada. La Condesa crea prendas que resaltan la feminidad gracias a patrones entallados que estilizan la figura, embellece los tejidos con estampados originales de la casa y forra sus prendas con un color rosa distintivo de la marca. 

Marina Conde, ingeniera interesada en la moda desde siempre, escribía sobre este tema en su blog y con él consiguió un hueco en la industria. Desde sus inicios ha buscado inspiración en el rock, en el cine, en vivencias personales, en el champagne y en los escándalos, siempre con el mismo leitmotiv: la aristocracia decadente. 

Esta aristocracia se refleja en patrones logrados a partir de tradición mezclada con la actualidad, en los detalles dorados y en las líneas limpias pero con un toque barroco. Por eso uno de los lemas del Palazzo donde habita el proceso creativo es "más es más".

La Condesa creates unique aristocratic jackets that will make you feel special and confident when you wear them.

La Condesa’s name translates to 'The Countess', and it comes from the variation of the maternal surname of the designer (Conde) as a tribute to her origins, in particular to her mother who taught her how to sew. Our royal emblem makes an attractive reference to glamour and wealth, since we are all seduced by the delusions of grandeur deep down. However, the countesses that inspire us lean more towards champagne and scandals rather than afternoon tea and a good reputation.

We began in 2009, when we designed our first jacket for a rock singer in his début concert. Since then, we have continued to expand and today we sell in multi-brand shops internationally and send dozens of jackets via our online shop to clients all over the world. We value craftsmanship, art and those small ingenious details that make one fall in love with an item of clothing.

We strongly believe in discovering and passing on knowledge from past generations. We are inspired by honesty, sincerity and having a good time. We love fashion.

Marina Conde is the unlikely aristocrat behind La Condesa.

It is believed that her dreams began during her teenage years, when she was awarded a scholarship to study in Wales. It is thought that this intensive British education in the medieval castle of Atlantic College could have been where her creative bipolarity was born.

At university, she combined her Industrial Engineering degree (ICAI School of Engineering) with fashion courses and workshops at the Centro Superior de Diseño de Moda in Madrid (UPM - Polytechnic University of Madrid). After several years of working at a strategic consultancy, she decided to reinvent herself by studying a Master’s Degree in “Strategic Management of Luxury Brands” at the IE Business School in Madrid.

In 2008, she started a blog in which she wrote about the fashion she saw on the streets and it soon became very popular. [lang2] One day, she used the blog to publish her first design, a military jacket for women. The response was unexpectedly overwhelming and she soon began to receive her first orders for similar jackets.

Despite having left everything behind to follow a dream, Marina continues to personally update her blog today and still believes in her idea of belonging to a lineage of nobles that fell into decadence. Her sensitive brain may have been left irreversibly damaged but her spirit and energy has never been better.

Long live La Condesa!
