Spring Time Chinoiserie
In turbulent times, nature provides peace and energy - it grounds people. The new AIGNER Spring/Summer 2021 “Mother Nature” collection embodies this longing for closeness to nature and one’s own roots. The colour Green becomes a representative of this feeling and conveys strength, joy and optimism. The shades range from delicate Moss Green to strong Matcha Green. They are accompanied by earthy brown tones such as Terra Brown or Walnut Brown. Honest natural materials such as leather, jute and straw dominate the selection of materials of the collection and focus on sustainability and the conscious use of precious resources. Again, in this collection, AIGNER remains true to its roots and combines selected vintage pieces with modern shapes and colours. The new “Mother Nature” collection is thus a consequent continuation of the last season.

The perennial Chloé optimism looks ever forward, embracing the possibilities of women and the power unlocked by their vital communion. Reflecting on intimacies and affirmations with oneself and the world around us, the Summer 2021 collection designed by Natacha Ramsay-Levi appears as a series of signposts: silhouettes in constant movement on the streets of Paris that converge on the steps of the Palais de Tokyo. The digital and physical gesture explores the concepts of walking and watching as contemplative exercises, inviting interpretation by both the wearer and her spectators. As female bodies united in this haven of artistic excellence, each strikes a new chord in the show’s harmonious soundscape.

Giuseppe Zanotti’s Spring Summer 2021 collection brings the idea of transformation to a new level. It’s a step-change that started by first reflecting on the results of the past few years and all the unexpected and diverse experiences that have fed into them up to now. As we hold a mirror up to the societal changes we are experiencing, the collection seeks to break down every barrier, every limitation and aim for the absolute. In this new dimension, the concept of seasonality gives way to a constant flow of ideas that transform a story into multiple chapters. The desire to rewrite one’s own stylistic code translates into a language that is insistently of-the-moment.

For her Miu Miu's Spring/Summer 2021 Collection, Miuccia Prada draws a global community of women today, at one time and to one digital space, to experience - to enjoy- together as in a perfect Miu Club.
Inherent is a sense of polarity: evening clothing against sportswear, pragmatism and preciousness, reality versus digital, an event staged to an empty stadium, yet simultaneously observed by many. Clothes draw on the spectacular language of athletic clothing and embellished event clothing: block colour, jersey, streamlined shapes, harness against decoration, embellishment, femininity, softness. The twin demands of action and attraction lead to similar aesthetic conclusions. Shapes are simple: blousons, straight pants, wrap skirts moving apart at the thigh. Fabrics are light, hemlines abbreviated, to free the figure inside.
There are few finer expressions of horological art than that of ‘skeletonisation’ - the intricate reduction of dials and movements to their bare minimum in order to reveal the true, beating heart of a watch in all its mechanical glory. Creating a skeleton watch requires vision, confidence, time and the considerable skill and experience of numerous specialists in order to combine exceptional aesthetics with dependable functionality - and it is a genre for which Piaget has been renowned for half a century.
And now Piaget is delighted to announce its latest adventure in skeleton watchmaking: A fully skeletonised ultra-thin version of its celebrated Piaget Polo, the ground-breaking luxury sports watch created by Piaget in 1979.

The Spring/Summer 2021 Prada womenswear show is, by its nature, a dialogue -the debut collection by co-creative directors Miuccia Prada and Raf Simons, a creative conversation in progress. An initial proposal, the first example of myriad possibilities, it propounds Prada as part of a dialogue between the different viewpoints of two collaborators. A definition, and then a redefinition, of values and ideology, a fundamental examination of the meaning of Prada. This season, in a period where the mediation between technology and humanity has become vital -bringing us together, even as we are apart-inspiration is drawn from this inherently contemporary and inevitable fusion. The process behind the collection was, inevitably, shaped by these necessary restrictions: fashion as both reflection of and reaction to the time in which it is invented. On a deeper level, technology’s indispensable presence within not only life but daily action has led to a different dialogue between ourselves and information: today, technology is a part of humanity itself.

The F-shape heel is one of Salvatore Ferragamo's greatest inventions. It defies the eye's perception of gravity and leaves the foot seemingly suspended in space.
The 2021 F-heel shoe shares the original curved heel shape that ingeniously appears to leave the wearer's foot walking on air. It is crafted in nappa in two bold yet lustrous colourways: Hedren Green and Technicolour Yellow. A third fabrication is made in black nappa punctuated by pearlescent beads.

The song –a harmony of a voice and several instruments -materialises as we discover Villa Necchi room by room. Bringing the casual and outdoorsy nonchalance of a collection that captures the spirit of an ideal grand tour through easy shapes and washed, worn-out textures. And just like in a song, each instrument alone is somehow naked, so the spirit of simplification, the taste for the elegantly unfinished give character to the pieces, like they have already lived a life. At the head of the T Factory, Tod’s Creative Director Walter Chiapponi works on the brand's lifestyle, interpreting a collection that is both eccentric and spontaneous, always personal and definitely made by humans. While clothing is made up of archetypal garments, accessories highlight the Tod's know-how, the excellence of the craft and workmanship which goes into making the most intricate details and handmade elements.
An egalitarian collection that swings between extremes and is fuelled by the will to purify. Lines are fluid, either extra-long or extra-short. Colours range from the tones of nude, that make body and clothing fuse one with the other, to bright hues that burn the retina like a signal. Flowers bloom on nylon pieces, swarm as prints, turn into lace, and lace is made of straw. The language of craft and of Couture mingle and merge. The idea of simplification and the quest for a new meaning guides the selection of pieces: masculine blouses, yet made of chiffon; five-pocket jeans; loose blazers; fluid long dresses and short-short dresses. At night, Valentino’s character arises. Even accessories undergo a process of re-signification: Rockstuds enlarge in a macro version, flowers bloom on sandals, boots have an assertive presence, bags are materic and tactile. The collection is a set of modules that can be individually adapted.
