Tradition and innovation, past and present, masculine and feminine elegance: the new Eleventy collection for next Autumn Winter 2020/21 is a winning mix of all this.
References to Deco modernism and the 70’s style characterize the collection which, with great skill, blends “the art of know-how” with the most contemporary style.
The project was born with the desire to create and transmit a recognizable, identifiable message, full of chromatic contrasts and suggestions of a modern deco. The collection it brings to life is reminiscent of the velvety and opaque surfaces of the handcrafted pottery softened by soft nuances of sensitive and peaceful mélange tones illuminated by reflections of winter skies.Rigorous wales, pinstripes and soft-flannel maxicecks in the sweetest and most curative melange tones become feminine must-haves in “masculine suits” and impalpable corduroy velvets, shearling over in the delicate pastel shades of powder, apricot, powder, wraparound dressing gowns in shades of cooked pottery and oil and spicy paprika and camel offer moments of reassuring well-being.
Classic allure and sophisticated graphic processes for the knitting in soft and precious yarns that interprets the most classic and recognizable patterns of sartorial elegance: maxidiamond, multicolor stripes, bicolor ceck, Nordic flavor jacquard in merino, cashmere and mohair.The must-haves of the season are re-proposed and are tinged with modernity with increased volumes and new proportions: dressing gown coats and modern hoods with a ’70s flavor, suits with a sculpted silhouette, sheepskin blousons, modernist geometries that design oversized duvets with an Urba flavor, soft shearling and ensembles in pastel corduroy velvet, trousers and pants with wide bottoms, new seventy chemisier in satin with a paprika-colored line, new asymmetrical closures and pleats give a modern touch to past classicism.
Once again Eleventy exalts Made in Italy by dressing with elegance and professionalism a confident woman, who aspires to improve herself, to be feminine and suitable for any occasion.
