Montgomery, the new Güell Lamadrid collection
Two of the great generals of World War II, each on one side of the Atlantic but in a same side, give name to this collection that stands for one of the most daring tendencies of this autumn: camouflage. It is composed of two designs of velvet woven in a military-inspired jacquard in three color combinations: green, brown and gray.
We dedicate this article to give a brief review of World War II from different disciplines, since it not only marked a before and an after in history, but led to a multitude of ways to approach the conflict.
Montgomery as a movie
Dunkerque, Christopher Nolan (2017). Based on real events, the film tells the story of how British soldiers were trapped by the German nazi army in the town of Dunkerque, France. An exciting story and an example of survival.
Montgomery as art
One of the most incredible stories of World War II is the Men of Monuments, a 345-person command led by Ettingler, which included prominent art curators and museum directors from around the world. They worked to ensure that the tragedy of war didn’t destroy the cultural heritage of the heart of Western civilization. “The Nazis had designed a system that in addition to ending the enemy it took over the land and its culture,” Ettingler said.
Montgomery as a novel
Slaughterhouse Five, by Kurt Vonnegut (1969). It is a satirical novel whose American author tells the experiences of the soldier Billy Pilgrim during the end of World War II. It is written in an autobiographical code, since the plot revolves around the bombing of Dresden, since Vonnegut was in the city during the massacre.
