Victoria Beckham Spring Summer 2021

Victoria Beckham proposes for Spring Summer 2021 a collection composed of 20 looks, all with great attention to detail. The protagonists are the ultra-long trousers with apple green and cream side slits, with a 70s vibe that reverberates throughout the collection. Midi dresses with simple lines and neutral tones, masculine-style suits ("Mick Jagger style") and a big "welcome back" for the low waist and trousers in denim. Most of the looks are completed by jewellery and details with golden chains.

"Limitations may be waived. Working from a distance for this collection, we reacted spontaneously. We were instinctive. We asked ourselves: what has changed? Who do we want to be? What do we want?

This collection is about freedom, about exploring, about dressing, about being ourselves. It is rooted in our true DNA, in our language: strong tailoring, strong colour, modernity. And dressing women.

"Eclectic is a word that I keep bringing back this season - it really encompasses women, their attitude, their nonchalance. There are different silhouettes, different facets of dressing - coats, fluid dresses, denim and elongated trousers. The hems are longer, the fit is easier, there is fluidity and ease. In fact, it is a real wardrobe. This collection is rooted in reality - in life, and in living. But it is a dream inspired by reality". - Victoria Beckham



Erdem Spring Summer 2021

For the Spring Summer 2021 collection, Erdem was inspired by the historical romantic novel "The Volcano lover", set in the 18th century and written by Susan Sontag. In 18th century Naples, the love triangle between Emma Hamilton, her husband the British consul Sir William Hamilton and Horatio Nelson takes place. Erdem reinterprets Emma Hamilton's wardrobe which is described within the novel. Emma is a very enterprising character: daughter of a Cheshire blacksmith, she grew up to become an important political personality and will find herself at the centre of this strange love affair. The volcano looms physically and metaphorically over the lives of the characters, creating the same feeling of uncertainty that the whole world has experienced in recent history. 

Airy and feminine shilouettes juxtaposed with floral patterns that in the details are reminiscent of 18th century dresses. We can't help but wait to see the Duchess of Cambridge (an admirer of Erdem) wearing one of the pieces in the collection next spring.
