The Fall Winter 2021/22 B(l)ack in time project is an up-to-date revival of six all-black iconic coats — an ode to the past through women who defined the 20th-century idea of style.
Over the decades, these landmark silhouettes have transformed in tandem with the times and in the name of fashion. Their iconic contours have been etched in the pages of fashion history for their contribution to the style of each era.
Varying volumes and proportions envisaged for the time in which they were made, have been reinterpreted in a contemporary light. Awash in absolute black, the non-color par excellence associated with a multitude of fashion souls — each coat is unique in its different meanings, seductive poetry, its rebellion, austerity, and design. Filtered through an optic of sobriety, pragmatism, impetuosity, every style is unique with dissimilar attitudes, united by the incredible sculptural power of a timeless present.
Six coats are tied to six unforgettable women, all of whom embody bold, decisive femininity and permeate a spirit of independence: Colette, Renée Breton, Dovima, Penelope Tree, Lauren Hutton, and Guinevere Van Seenus.
Distinct fabrics were selected for each model, with the aim of conjuring a sensorial memory and the legacy each era left behind.
