Ailanto is a designer label created by the twin brothers Iñaki and Aitor Muñoz, recognized and admired for its artisan designs and noble materials.
The designer brand was founded in 1995 by the Spanish duo, who both studied Fine Arts at the University of Barcelona. Iñaki completed his studies with a degree in Fashion Design. As a result of their love for art Ailanto is a primarily visual brand. The name Ailanto refers to an ornamental tree, which appeals to the imagination.The collections are inspired by nature and avant-garde movements such as Bauhaus, Mondrian and Ellsworth Kelly, as seen in the combination of colours and the geometry of shapes. The brothers' studio is therefore stuffed with art books. The creative process of Iñaki and Aitor Muñoz starts with the design of the prints. These are developed with great attention; various pictorial techniques such as collage, tempera, watercolour and oil are applied, depending on the desired result.
