Carreras presented their men's wear label Jan Iú
Més during the Cibeles Madrid Fashion Week in February 2009.

Question: Where did you get the inspiration for your ‘cool’ concept of "isolated, arctic, wood, comfortable, delicate, bounding, cold, hostile, mountain, dark and lost" – was it from literature, music…?
Més: We get inspired for this collection by a trip to a very small village on a mountain; almost we got lost on the mountain. There, surprised us a storm that almost leaves us isolated. This is the reason for the main concept "isolated, arctic, wood, comfortable, delicate, bounding, cold, hostile, mountain, dark and lost". The models wear big coats and big sweater of knit for to escape to the cold.
Question: Please let us know which music titles you are using for the Jan iú Més Fashion Show fall/winter 9/10.
