Pre-Fall 2020 Fashion Collection. N°21 turns ten.

I fused together in my mind all the references and designs of the last ten years, stripping relative meanings down to the core so as to get mere marks of recognizability, from which I then drew new shapes and proportions, innovative silhouettes, quite unusual combinations. Yet at the same time I highlighted all the characteristic and characterizing traits of N°21’s history. It’s a process I had a lot of fun with and that enabled me not only to reread the brand’s backstory but also to range beyond visions and images I’ve already tried out and worked with in order to create other ones more in sync with today. I did this by operating in a creative transformist mode.
