The Extreme Collection was born in Madrid in 1990 from the creativity of Jorge and Mariano Garcia Magariño. The Garcia Magariño brothers had a clear vision: to create an accessible fashion luxury brand, 100% designed and made in Spain. Their idea was to design women’s blazers inspiring to men’s tailoring, adapting that style to women’s body, reinventing the shapes and classic cuts, to achieve a modern gentlewoman.
The Extreme Collection’ goal is to enhance the elegance and style of each woman with unique pieces that make her feel confident, unique, powerful and beautiful. Our clients fall in love with of our creations again and again season after season.
The Extreme Collection is above all a love story between creativity and savoir-faire.
Made in Spain
We are pioneers and firm believers in sustainable manufacturing. That’s why all our limited editions and capsule collections are handcrafted in our Toledo workshops by expert tailors and embroiderers.
We are very proud to be part of “Moda España” association, that gives us the opportunity to raise the awareness of our customers and the entire industry about the importance of relocating production in Spain.
At The Extreme Collection, we defend traditional tailoring which is subject to very high standards in quality, with designs that our creative team reinvent every season. We vouch for a concept that defends the creation of sustainable fashion in Spain, with classic designs that will last over time.
The level of professionalism of our craftsmen is crucial for our garments’ production, as they are all finished by hand. Every Collection each style finishing needs at least 30 working hours
We have rescued old artisanal trades, such as traditional tailoring and the «knowhow» of the craftsmen at work.
At The Extreme Collection, we are pioneers of the sustainability in fashion. We protect our resources, the environment and we have a limited and controlled production.
We use materials that respect and do not harm the environment, as well as promote a fair and transparent supply chain: nothing we design and create is made in clandestine factories.
Everything is made right here in Spain, where we respect workers’ rights.
We focus on the quality of our garment more than the fashion trend of the season, creating classic designs that age well and are wearable season after season.
Sometimes it seems challenging to compete against fast fashion and the massive diffusion of sportswear and casual wear. Even though we strongly believe in slow fashion (ethical fashion): we create in Spain, our creative process is conscious of the impact it has in the environment, and above all, we take care of all our workers.
