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.
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.
