While some designers are striking against the agender trend and trying to bring as much glamor into fashion as possible, others, on the contrary, completely erase all the lines between masculine and feminine. They prove, that style is not a framework and restrictions, but a field for free self-expression. This season, when Grazia Malagoli, the creative director of Sportmax, presented the brand's new collection at Milan Fashion Week, she also decided to make the wardrobe as versatile and basic as possible. But at the same time she managed to leave it spectacular.
Also, before starting work, she did a lot of research on how women dressed in different historical eras. The designer took the best of each of them, so all looks from the her fall-winter 2021 collection have many references to art - from ancient Greek sculptures to Annie Lennox’s stage outfits. In order to accurately convey her vision of the fashion of the future, the designer looked for inspiration in the works of the French surrealist artist Claude Cahun. It was he, who in the 20’s of the last century forced many to reconsider the attitude not only to art, but also to the female image - strong, but the same being very fragile.
In her new collection for the fall-winter 2021 season, Grazia Malagoli found a fine line between asceticism, which makes the looks almost faceless, and sexuality, which adds the necessary spice to them: it includes leather trench coats, trouser suits with elongated jackets, column dresses, multi-colored fur coats, cardigans and gray classic coats.
