Meet The Maker: Paloma Lanna

March 7, 2017

The daughter of designers, Paloma Lanna grew up surrounded by art, fashion and beauty in San Sebastian. Although she now calls Barcelona home, not all that much has changed. “Right now my studio is full of women, light and flowers—it’s so messy!” she tells us. “I can see Gaudí’s ‘La Pedrera’ from my window.” Are we jealous? Yes, of course, but we expected no less from the designer and photographer behind Paloma Wool. Inspired by modern portraiture, her latest collection of casual-cool basics is as refreshing as spring itself.

A great day begins with my cat Yohji waking me up.
The last song I listened to on repeat was “Catalina” by Rosalía.
I never leave home without my keys—can’t get back in without them. 
I’m proud of how we approach femininity at Paloma Wool.

I’ve always wanted to play the guitar—I have zero musical talent.
My dream dinner party guests include Matisse and Picasso. I would like to ask them about how they chose to depict women.
My most prized possession is a letter my mother wrote to me for my 25th birthday.

If I wasn’t an artist I’d be a restaurateur.
The next place I want to travel is Japan.
Weekends are for biking.
Happiness is being grateful.
