Twin brothers, Iñaki and Aitor Muñoz (Bilbao, 1968) are this fashion firm’s two creators. Founded in 1992, Ailanto is known for its colour combinations and its geometric shapes, as well as for being the inspiration behind avant-garde and contemporary artistic movements.
Its Madrid store (opened in the summer of 2012 and located in the glamorous district of Las Salesas) is a clear statement of the brand’s personality. The botanical and floral prints – some of the firm’s key features – appear on the numerous lamps hanging in the three rooms that comprise the space.
The interior design is the work of Sonia de Pietro and Javier García-Rivera de la Plaza. They have employed various materials – copper and brass – and camel, brown and mustard shades to achieve the laid-back elegance that transmits the Ailanto values and where it is possible to browse the creations the two designers exhibit on the catwalks each season.
