OUR
CULTURE

CR

The fashion industry is today the second most polluting in the world. 93,000 million cubic meters of water are used every year, a volume sufficient to meet the needs of five million people; half a million tons of microfiber are thrown into the sea, equivalent to 3 million barrels of oil; and there are more carbon emissions than all the aircraft flights and international sea shipping’s together. That is why in CR we work for a more sustainable fashion industry, which values ​​people, the environment, creativity and profits everyone equally.
HISTORIA-HILO CR

INTERN

In Colombia there are approximately 117,018 inmates in the 138 prisons of the country. The reality that inhabits prisons is cruel due to overcrowding and poor resocialization programs. Prisons are called by inmates the “University of Evil” where the chances of living with dignity are void. Through our collaborations with the inmates we offer the possibility of generating an economic income for themselves and their families, and a space in which the mind flies and takes them out of those 4 walls by being concentrated in a specific work.
HISTORIA-SER INTERNO

INDIGENOUS

In recent years, the indigenous ancestral craft has started to get lost in the country of Colombia due to industrialization. Many artisanal techniques such as the mola, which originally are made by hand, are starting to be mass produced by machine. In CR we joint forces with different indigenous communities to exalt their cultural knowledge and reveal the magnificent work of coworking, while promoting the use of ethnic crafts in contemporary fashion garments.
HISTORIA- SER INDIGENA

ARTISAN

A third of the women who are mothers in Colombia are single and head of their families. Only 8.4% of these women in the country have a professional level of education, and this leaves them finding only poorly paid jobs with long working hours, which makes it impossible for them to raise their children. Through our program of “Artisans for Fashion” we offer them the possibility of performing a decent job, which allows them to work from their homes while taking care of the house and their children.

Nuestra
Historia

CR

La industria de la moda es hoy en dia la segunda mas contaminante del mundo. Cada año se utilizan 93.000 millones de metros cubicos de agua, un volumen suficiente para satisfacer las necesidades de cinco millones de personas; se tiran al mar medio millon de toneladas de microfibra lo que equivale a 3 millones de barriles de petroleo; y se producen mas emisiones de carbono que todos los vuelos y envios maritimos internacionales juntos. Es por esto que en CR trabajamos por una industria de la moda mas sostenible, que valora a las personas, el medio ambiente, la creatividad y las ganancias en igual medida.

A traves de nuestras colaboraciones con los internos le ofrecemos la posibilidad de generar un ingreso economico para ellos y sus familias asi como un espacio en el que la mente al estar concentrada en una labor puntual vuela y los saca de esas 4 paredes.

COLLECTION
BASICS

These are those pieces that will help you bring your outfits together from start to finish.

COLLECTION
OPPOSITES

For this collection Carolina Ronderos dives into the universe of nature, but not the green and colorful one as the word suggests, but a more melancholic version of it, Dead Nature.

The Collection develops through a path of Opposites, always looking to create contrast, structured vs airy, heavy vs light, layered vs plain. The only color used was black, allowing all the attention to go to the details, cuts and manipulation of the fabrics, as each of these relates closely to the source of inspiration.
Jackets and trousers in crepe take the lead with sinuous lines and generous folds and shapes in organza, chiffon and satin silk. These are then triggered up a gear with a more complex coat-dress in crepe with layered pleats in satin silk and a chiffon skirt.

Opposites collection was staged in a timeless space were the colors black and white play an essential roll in the game of contrast.

COLLECTION
STORM

For this collection Carolina Ronderos was inspired by a new god from the Olympus, Zeus the king of gods and the god of the sky and thunder.

The collection celebrates the storm and captures the visual magic this creates between chaos and perfection. Nodding to the colour shades, structures and strength for which the environmental event is renowned. Sharp silhouettes, cinched bodices, voluminous shapes and the implementation of black and white evoke the drama generated by a storm.
The palette starts with black, dark blue and extends to lighter shades in blues, shimmering silvers and whites in light georgettes, silks, chiffons and organza. The renewed implementation of a traditional fabric like Denim gives a sense of rebirth and sophistication to the collection.

This Carolina Ronderos collection is the epitome of women empowerment, elegance and allure.

COLLECTION
WAVES

For this collection Carolina Ronderos flies to the universe of wind, evoking the ripples and shapes that wind bursts create in the sky. The gods of Borea and Cefiro reincarnate in the bodies of women.

The collection celebrates art and its importance in cultures histories. The color palette was extracted from the sun’s gold overtones on the alabaster sky and its contrast with the darkness of the night: pearl white, intense gold and black. The outfits have been created monotone to allow all the attention to go to the details, textures and color accents.
Finesse, femininity and sensuality are the characteristics of each of the looks in the collection. Layers of fabric and interlaced satin threads are the principal focus of each piece.

Sophisticated and timeless Carolina Ronderos collection highlights exquisite craftsmanship and elegance.

COLECCIÓN
EMERALD

We have always explored the inexhaustible universe of nature and that is why this collection celebrates art and its importance in the history of cultures. The main color used was black, which allows all the attention to be directed to the details and reflections of color. The layers of fabric and interwoven satin threads are the main focus of each garment. Each fold and curve make us remember the perfection that resonates in the creation of nature.

COLECCIÓN
EMERALD

Siempre hemos explorado el inagotable universo de la naturaleza y es por eso, que esta colección celebra el arte y su importancia en la historia de las culturas. El color principal utilizado fue el negro, lo que permite que toda la atención se dirija a los detalles y reflejos del color. Las capas de tela y los hilos de satín entrelazados son el foco principal de cada prenda. Cada pliegue y curva, nos hace recordar la perfección que resuena en la creación de la naturaleza.

COLECCIÓN
ROOTS

This collection seeks to return to the brands roots by presenting pieces that fuse a modern aesthetic of cuts and textures with ancient artisanal techniques from Colombia. The mola is the protagonist in the garments, through its vibrant colors makes each piece unique and special. Along with other techniques such as the macramé that make this collection one that represents our beginnings, an ancestral and artisanal legacy.

COLECCIÓN
HERITAGE

The friendships that the summer left continue to shine in the cold streets of London. City that remains a great source of inspiration for the designer who has some of her best memories of youth in the streets that she still glimpses in the distance.

London on a whim, spontaneous and urban. Tomorrow will be another place, a place with the same vibration and style. Well, some time ago she discovered that sites and dates don’t matter much, what really matters is the people who are in them.

The fluid timeless silhouettes with slightly more rigid structures generated by manipulating the fabrics make a perfect match with the floorboards, the formica tables and the authentic decorations of the small coffee shops that are located in each neighborhood.
In these places the brand’s garments are mixed with a familiarity capable of crossing the years and traveling in time, looking as fresh as ever.

Vivid colors such as peach, hyacinth purple, blush red, sunflower yellow, green and orange, present in molas, macramé and silk stitches, stir things up dancing in harmony as a poem with colors such as white, black, gray, ivory and indigo characteristic of the brand.

Looks of layer over layer or a single piece used on bare skin, the garments of the collection allow each personality to shine. Each shape seeks to highlight the female figure and empower the woman who carries it. It is a weekend of uncontrollable laughter, improvised parties, unexpected encounters and moments suspended in time. A story they will want to tell before starting over again.

COLLECTION
MOVEMENT

This collection revolves around BEING and LIVING. Get up early, take time, live the moment. Away from the noise, in the rooftops of the city the hours stretch to infinity. Hits sound on the radio, those of singers from before. Nothing has changed. The clear sky, the open windows, the freshness of the spaces, all so smooth.

In the closets, a sleeveless top, a silk dress, a long skirt and a chiffon cover. The maxi shirts that slept here and the delicate clothes with less layers wake up with the contact of the sun. This time, natural fibers meet again and the maxi covers that we used layer over layer to cover us from the cold, today are used over a thin top or on bare skin.
For several months, we purely saw neutral tones such as black, pearl, shades of gray and blue, which are still kept but on this occasion upon contact with the rays of light they are recharged, transferring all the power to that craft of intertwined silk threads called macrame and to the mola, those layers of fabric over each other that let glimpse a geometry of small lines of color. The protective silhouettes with geometric cuts that wrap the figure with a familiar aura, continue with strength and mix with slightly lighter garments that remind us that the sun has come. Without having to think about it, as if it were an intuition we know that this is not a season, it is a sensation. Is the summer!
