After 9/11, or during the spread of AIDS, the world…
Pomandère’s A-W 2020-21 collection guides us through an emotional experience through three moments that mark the passage of time during the day. The colors and characteristics of the fabrics take us through a day out in nature with an authentic and precise narrative. The first moment is represented by the dewy morning light, the awakening of nature and the boundless spaces illuminated by a thousand colors.
The central moment of the day is identified by designer Carlo Zanuso by the rainbow, coloring the horizon with iridescent raindrops, mystically opening up to a day meant to be lived with total freedom. The third and final moment is represented by the moon rising and with it the night, the moment when the moon’s reflections illuminates the darkness.
Starting from this creative framework, the collection uses colors and fabrics inspired by the three cardinal themes of the collection to develop its characterization through a careful selection. Lace, fluid and warm gauze, bouclè for the outerwear, and flannels are the fabrics that best identify the first part of the collection, characterized by a thematic print “Dew” which recalls a delicate field of flowers on silk wool gauze.
The rainbow gives energy and personality to the part of the collection that is expressed with warm and precious fabrics such as mohair outerwear, degradè velvet and multicolor kid mohair knitwear. Daywear fabrics such as bull denim and moleskin are combined with fabrics with a rich and precious texture such as hammered shiny satin, smooth velvet and garment-dyed satin.
The moon welcomes the night with warm and enveloping fabrics such as pure merino wool knitwear, carded tweed, the two-tone madras fabric in wool and linen, the micro houndstooth, the wool mats and the double wales and vichy fabric. Brightness and refinement distinguish the golden jersey, the lurex pinstripe gauze and the flannels with micro lurex check.
The soft scarves and socks, hats, fabric bags and the small costume jewelry complete the looks created for a woman who conceals a free and sometimes irreverent soul.
