Pre-Fall 2021 is a musing on momentum: being propelled by personal strength and glimmers of hope. The collection explores the notion of getting through, of making your way by surrounding yourself with what you feel you need. The instinct to seek comfort and to retreat into nostalgia is tempered by a craving for escape and by moments of pure joy.
Grounded in memories of childhood visits to New York— at once alluring and overwhelming, concentrated yet vast in its verticality—the collection brings together rich textures that evoke Gotham’s past and present, from gleaming patent leather and flashes of lace to plush bouclé cashmere and velvety suede, all shown with fishnet stockings. A graphic, urban palette of black and white is warmed by creamy and burnished hues.
