Designers Antonio Burillo and Juan Carlos Fernández dress up the Mar de Frades Limited Edition. Its creators are inspired by the mysteries of the sea and wine to bring us a concept of elegance and essential luxury. An ephemeral, timeless and eternal design, like the waves that contemplate the Albariño vineyards.

Mother and daughter designed two limited editions of the iconic blue bottle, keeping the alliance between Mar de Frades and the world of fashion and design alive. The result is two pieces that perfectly fuse the essence of Mar de Frades with the unmistakable personality of the designers.
In 2018, Mar de Frades commissioned the design of this special edition by Ana Locking, a designer whose long-standing international career has an unmistakable cutting-edge style with classical roots, and who is a great defender of storytelling in the world of fashion.
In 2016, Mar de Frades entrusted the design of its new Limited Edition to the the devout sewing artist Juan Duyos. “My inspiration lies in the immense Atlantic and in the fabric of my next collection; silver rhinestones that simulate the crashing of the waves.”
In 2015, the Limited Edition was dressed in haute couture by fashion designer Jorge Vázquez. To create the label, the author travelled to his native Galicia and drew the garden from his childhood, with the intention of transporting whoever sees it to a landscape overwhelmed with flowers.
Mar de Frades by Alvarno is an explosion of colour with geometrical elements in repetitive harmony, revealing the characteristic blue this Albariño’s essence. In this Limited Edition, the designers portray an imaginary sunset through a series of elements from the world of fashion.
Palacio combines the waves of the Atlantic with Albariño in this limited edition: “My collections always contain the search for volumes made of drapings, knots, etc. I like to see the way the fabric hugs and gives the silhouette its shape… just as the Atlantic breeze envelopes the grapevines of Mar de Frades”, says the designer.
With the ocean as a her muse, Laura Ponte, creative director at the jewellery brand Luby&Lemerald, designed the new 2012 limited edition under the name Luby Lab, the brand’s youngest and most daring line.
