A rise to a new prospective about fashion has revolutionized the way people perceive this industry. Social media has kept the industry alive and we are ready to experiment and explore new aesthetics. The fashion workplace is moving towards equality while empowerment is abiding in the hearts of the people. The costumers’ taste is influenced by a certain sense of nostalgia for past era’s; thankfully fashion’s fascination with the 2000s is less overt than of late, but the slouchy jean rave- like denim remains a must have; and the skirt/dress–over–pants styling trick looks back to the early days of influencers. There’s a lot of post-war energy in popular culture now; with the cult of Marilyn and the upcoming Barbie movie being just two examples. Designers added the Golden Age of Couture to that list. Not only are there big occasion looks, but models struck poses that could have been borrowed from 1950s issues of Vogue.
Tailoring is the main message of the season. Designers, like many of the rest of us, are looking for a bit of order post- pandemic, and as we enter a new year. While silhouette options are many, the full-legged pantsuit leads. A suit, be it a jacket with pants, skirts, or shorts is one way to look sharp and all dressed, but the neat thing about a tailleur is that it is also the basis of a mix-andmatch modular wardrobe.
Grasslands is inspired by steppe landscapes such as the Great Plains of Northern America. A sort of come-back to go further, rediscovering the pleasure and purpose of growing your own food, taking care of the land and animals. In general its a lifestyle outside the big cities, where nature is
the main character.
Between the Lines invokes the high-class quality of London’s Savile Row, the street known for bespoke men’s tailoring. Inspired by British culture, old England classic tailoring history, century old libraries where to spend hours, an intellectual mood.
White Noise. A luxurious stay, a resort far away. Pampered in the most beautiful silence, the wind blows through the canes, a time to relax, to meditate, to stay still. Elegance is extreme, is high and sophisticated, never too much never too little. The name of this theme is inspired by a muffled, cocooned noise, such as when the airplane is in flight mode; studies have discovered the power of this sound as a relaxing tool that also helps concentrate when needed.
Casinò Royal. Living for big dinners and after dinners, celebrating the last months of the year in full harmony and fun with friends and family. A theme where the dress codes meets edgy, modern and ostentious interpretations where a touch od madness and fun is welcomed. Studio 54. An ode to the party and clubbing life. Dancing all night long, New Years vibes. NYC vibes. All nighter in clubs and private parties getting us in the mood for a New Year to come. The vibe is sexy and seductive, dresses are mini, or long with deep gaps to show off the legs.
Patagonia is the restart. After all the festivities and parties and wild nights, socialites dinners and business talks, the body and mind need a deep detox and recharge to kick start a new year ahead of us. I wouldn’t call it escapism, since the balance between life and work is sacred, sometimes we also need a break from others, talking about other humans.
