Now in his seventh season, Alejandro Gómez Palomo has become a menswear mainstay, consistently bringing feminine whimsy to his praised Palomo Spain collections. For spring 2019, Palomo unveiled his latest work at the Museum of Natural Sciences in Madrid, and reinterpreted the "cabinet of curiosities" found in aristocratic European homes from the Renaissance through the 19th century.

Below, PAPER went backstage with Palomo models wearing spring 2019 inside the Madrid Museum.
