  • Ã minute with… Myriam Rincón

    We get to know Myriam Rincón, a fashion designer by trade and self-professed wabi-sabi lover who dabbles in film photography.

    Hi, please introduce yourself.
    My name is Myriam and I am a fashion designer currently based in Galicia, in the north of Spain.

    Although I work as a designer full time, it’s hard for me to describe myself within a vocation because I have a strong interest in the creative field in general, and I love to continuously learn and experiment in the arts spectrum.

    A pivotal moment in your creative thinking?
    Over the years I have been embracing the concept of beauty in simple things and giving great importance to details.

    With preference for what has greater durability over time, I consider myself a lover of wabi-sabi and objects that have a story to tell.

    How did you get into shooting film?
    I discovered analog photography thanks to my father who gave me his old Ricoh KR-5 Super. In the photographic process, you can’t see the result until you go through subsequent development steps. For me, patience and waiting in a society as frenetic as ours gives greater value to the result of each photograph taken.

    Your dream getaway?
    I am looking forward to visiting Japan again. I have great admiration for oriental culture and aesthetics and I think there are so many things to see and to do there; the surprises never end.

    I love the architectural brutalism and I would like to visit the Truss Wall House in Tokyo and Teshima Art Museum.

  • The future of fashion is…
    Vintage fashion, reworked garments and materials, and everything based in a circular movement.

    Favourite part of your home or neighbourhood?
    To have the beach next to my house and to be able to go for a walk along the shore or read a book in front of the sea. The feeling of disconnection at the end of the day is absolute.

    Currently vibing?
    A mood-board of sorts…

  • Sweet or savoury?
    Both at the same time! I love to eat and let myself be surprised by new gastronomic experiences. I really like mixtures – the last favorite dish I remember was a mackerel sashimi with an almond and garlic cream on a grape granita. Really nice combination of flavours.

    Cook at home or dine out?
    Definitely dine out. I have little time in my day to day and cooking is not one of my priorities.

    In my day-to-day life I usually go to places where local produce is served and I love to share dishes with my friends with whom I always exchange good conversations around the table.

    The last place you visited and felt inspired?
    I visited Lisbon last year for the first time and for me it was a very inspirational experience. The city has a lot of interesting buildings such as the Portugal Pavilion project by Alvaro Siza and the train station by Calatrava.

    But without a doubt, its museums deserve a special mention – both for the architecture and for the art pieces they house. My favorites were the MAAT, the Berardo Collection Museum and the Calouste Gulbenkian.
