I wouldn’t know how to describe everything we experienced last week at this winter edition of 080 Barcelona Fashion. Days filled with a lot of fashion, certainly, but also some fabulous people who enjoyed Mistinguett Sparkling both at our catwalk show and in the VIP lounge after every show.
I have to confess that before the event I wasn’t sure whether you would all fall for the Mistinguett attitude, but that’s the point! Taking risks and daring to do different things. Our catwalk show was crazy wonderful. People never stopped parading, taking photos, selfies, putting on makeup and, above all, a lot of laughter and bubbles. And by the way.. what a discovery! It looks like most of you were fans of Mistinguett Rosé. It all went!
Wednesday… was the day… Mistinguett Plume the queen of the catwalk! Oscar León presented his new collection, Plume Noir, inspired in our bottle, surrounded by feathers, in his own inimitable style, elegant and quoting phrases from our manifesto… We could not have felt more identified with the message.
La Plume, yes. Our iconic product. A tribute to Mistinguett, the most important French showgirl of all time. A ground-breaking woman whose legs were insured for more than 500,000 francs in the 1920s, who pioneered dancing among the public or using feathers in her shows.
An emotionally charged catwalk show, with a lot of female POWER, culminating in a sundowner that turned into a party with music by Nuria Scarp. We had the good fortune of meeting and sharing the Mistinguett attitude with journalists, bloggers, sommeliers and fashion enthusiasts such as Ruth Troyano, Meritxell Falgueras of Wines and the City and Gloria Vallès of Winestyle Travel.
In short, now all we have in our heads is the summer edition, being able to share more good times with the people we met and who are now devotees of the brand. We have so much to celebrate!
Until next time… which will be soon!
Kisses and lots of bubbles!
Hey, watch the video and you’ll see what a great time we had… Can you see yourself there? 😉
On Sunday the 27th we enjoyed a fantastic evening at the 11th Catalan Film Academy Gaudí Awards. A night filled with stars, authorities and the in-crowd, with Mistinguett bubbles enlivening the welcome drinks and the post-gala party. Nominees, award-winners and guests thoroughly enjoyed the Brut mini-bottles and the fabulous rosé. Toast after toast to celebrate an exceptional function! Nobody wanted the evening to end…
This was also a very special edition given the high number of women winners, which signals a surge in female film talent (from Catalonia and beyond). I am very pleased that Lola Dueñas and Anna Castillo won the Gaudí award for best female actresses, lead and supporting respectively, but I am overjoyed that in other nominations, in which gender is not specified, the winners were some great women professionals such as Celia Rico for best screenplay, Rosa Ros for best photography, Mercè Paloma for best costume design, Bàrbara Farré for best short film and Elena Trapé for best feature film. Among other female award winners!
Later, at the after-party, I raised a toast with some great actresses such as Marisa Paredes and Itziar Castro, so exciting, my legs were shaking, I admire them so much! I also chanced upon the president of the Academy, Isona Passola, who was delighted with the presence of Mistinguett. She’s a veritable brand lover, she adores our cava!
It was a truly magical night… 🙂
I certainly won’t miss it next year. Hurrah for the Gaudí awards, hurrah for films in the Catalan language and, above all, long live female filmmakers!
What a Christmas! This had to be one of the best Christmases ever.
Photo sessions thrown in with our very own Mistinguett, la Plume topping off the Christmas table, gifts and more gifts, cava, family, corks flying, laughter and bubbles…
Now coming back down to earth, feet firmly on the ground and a clear set of resolutions in mind for 2019!
This has to be the year of Mistinguett, our year, a year filled with challenges, excitement and projects I am so eager to undertake.
In a couple of weeks we’re off to a strong start! This year at the Gaudí Awards, I’m crazy thrilled at this opportunity! You can’t imagine the excitement of being present at this event. I’m longing to be there, to shout to the four winds who Mistinguett was, all about her feathers and our bubbles.
We then pack up and head for 080! Where Oscar León has more surprises in store for us…
Wow! I’m not sure I can wait! Ok, let’s get down to work! We’re running on and there’s still so much work to be done!
Have a great day! 🙂
Last Friday we were partying again, this time in uptown Barcelona, to celebrate the fourth anniversary of the Elena Estaun jewellery shop.
This brand has the most gorgeous things, I would have bought everything! And there we were with Mistinguett Rosé, mingling with people, jewels and bubbles.
A fantastic evening with a live performance while people tried on jewels, toasted with Mistinguett and said sweet nothings to each other.
As a good foodie, I adore the pairings of our cava with jewels… hmmmmmm… a match made in heaven!
In a nutshell: we had two fantastic days during which people greatly enjoyed our Brut Rosé both at the Festival’s welcome event and once inside the site, where they could also ask for Brut mini bottles… So many people discovered this fun and easy way to drink cava!
As the groups revealed themselves, the atmosphere turned increasingly festive, the music was ramped up and people just kept on dancing. And there we were, among the bubbles and some fantastic people.
Now we can only think of the Vida Festival 2019, which will signal the start of summer and a chance to again celebrate Vida and life together! ☺
The opening of the new Lola Casademunt shop in Madrid took place on 28 November. The flagship store could not be better situated: in the very heart of Madrid’s shopping district, on Calle Lagasca número 72. And there we were, surrounded by jewellery, apparel, glamour and glitter, this time with our Mistinguett Brut Rosé to put a mellow spin on the afternoon for all the celebrities and clients who attended. We had a blast and would like to wish the entire Lola Casademunt team many many successes. Here’s hoping that we can always raise a toast together! For this Christmas… take good note: Calle Lagasca, 72. 😉 Don’t miss the video of this fantastic event: https://www.facebook.com/174604179255860/videos/501940813638773/
Real women with great ideas who are very keen to carry them out, just like Mistinguett did in the past, and she went on to become the most important showgirl of all time.
And there we will be, joining them and filling their encounter with bubbles and magic, this time with our mini bottles.
We love the idea of informalizing cava, of drinking it casually from the bottle. Why not? We feel it is a defiant yet glamorous thing to do.
Let’s raise a toast, ladies, let’s toast to a world filled with talent and Extraordinary women!

We enjoyed some truly magical nights in Sitges during the Fantastic Film Festival of Catalonia.
After having worked on it for a long time, we had the opportunity of presenting our brand’s most iconic product: La Plume by Mistinguett.
The presentation took place in an incomparable setting, the balcony over the sea in Sitges at the “Blood Red Carpet by Mistinguett” party surrounded by personalities, glamour and authenticity.
The party turned into a cabaret when the actress Jordina Biosca brought the genuine Mistinguett to life. It was she, in an aerial performance, who revealed the new bottle to everyone, while thousands of feathers fell and the sky lit up in a pyrotechnic display. It was fantastic!
La Plume is the product that seeks to break with established moulds, a blanc de noirs made from pinot noir with fresh and fruity hints, dressed in an exclusive bottle inspired in the feathers used for the first time in a show by Mistinguett and which, to cap it all, won a gold medal in the most important packaging competition: the 2017 Pentawards.
At this time we need more products like this, products with which you can identify… different, brimming with personality, young and ground-breaking.
Are you bold enough to try it? I did and fell in love with it!
The first collaboration was at the Alimentaria fair, where the designer painted a mural on our stand with an exclusive phrase for Mistinguett where he wanted to make clear the philosophy of the brand. “A philosophy of being faithful to its principles, its illusions and fighting for them, to fight for their dream, which ends up being their way of life: their hobby, their enthusiasm,” he said.
In addition, for the 080 Fashion Week, he also signed exclusive totebags with his designs, where the assistants were able to take a gift dedicated by the designer, who was the star of the first fashion week parade in Barcelona. Everybody fell in love at the catwalk with his famous t-shirts with a message, where he talks about the various types of love. Unmistakable T-shirts with which he has also released two exclusive designs for Mistinguett.
