‘’The visual represents movement, strength, flow-through and abstraction; the world’s ‘new normal’ is not yet defined’’, the collection notes stated. ‘’In order to face what will come, to progress as a society, and to evolve for the greater good, fluidity – even if imperfect – is necessary’’.
The blur treatment appears on tailored pieces and ruffled, pleated garments alike. Blush to rose to mauve to black, and back again. Silhouettes, with an emphasis on the shoulders’ edge, are anti-static. They shift with the wearer, floating near the body but always maneuvering. Added separates, from leather jackets to puffer coats to skintight rashguards to cargo pants, amplify the dynamism.
The collection is complemented by a secondary suggestion: wardrobe simplification. A clean scarlet red double-breasted blazer-again, with a pronounced shoulder-stands alongside a leather moto-dress, a lean tracksuit and a crisp all-white shirt. In a moment when much is uncertain, fundamental elements are key.
Accessories span from nostalgic box bags to casual baseball caps. A cutout-toe second-skin bootie, in an electric Yves Klein-blue dye, anchors the footwear.
