After 9/11, or during the spread of AIDS, the world…
Following in his father’s footsteps, Antonio Carnevale founded TwentyOne inspired by the features that make Italian fashion famous and recognizable all over the world: refined, high-quality and unique.
The company was born in the Apulian region, surrounded by the beauty of landscapes and architecture that make the quintessentially Italian region a cradle of tradition and creativity. TwentyOne’s aim is to create clothes and collections that convey the true value of Made in Italy, always keeping up with the times through modern cuts and fittings.
Fabrics are treated in an original and innovative way to give them a fresh look while not losing sight of the elegance of the past.
TwentyOne’s collections are inspired by Italian masterpieces, borrowing concepts from the fine art and literature traditions.
Michelangelo’s David, carved in marble, represents the uniqueness and genius of Italian manufactory and artisanal production.
As a musical composition seeking its perfect harmony, so each piece of the collections is designed to be a perfect harmonious whole of fabrics, cut, stitching and accessories that complete each item making it exclusive and extremely personal for the wearer.
In literature, Italo Calvino’s essay entitled “Six Memos for the next millennium” emphasizes the importance of lightness, a virtue that can lead to changes in perspective. He refers to exploring new attitudes to the world, to look at it with a new eye and approaching it with a clear mind. So does TwentyOne, with its work of balancing innovation and tradition and by conveying lightness with the colours that characterize its collections.
Each garment represents a journey in search of the unexplored. The new Fall/Winter collection looks to the future by presenting knitted fabrics and jerseys in earth toned colours. It is perfect for those who love the sophisticated elegance of the past with a touch of innovation.
