Discover 1910 Borbonese‘s Fall Winter 2020.21 collection, that celebrates brand’s history and looks towards future, presented on Saturday February 22nd, during the recently finished Milan Fashion Week.
“2020 marks Borbonese’s 110th anniversary. Founded in 1910, the brand has crossed the XX century forging bonds with preeminent figures from the Italian and international artistic milieu and is now marching fast into the XXI century. Filled with artistic masterpieces from the whole century, overlooking landmarks such as the Duomo and Palazzo Reale, Museo Del Novecento is the perfect backdrop to reaffirm an awareness of the past and an outlook towards the future. Here 1910 Borbonese, the parallel dimension to the Borbonese label envisioned by Dorian Tarantini and Matteo Mena, takes life.
This season, the 1910 Borbonese woman is gloriously severe, her legs stem from chunky-heeled boots or sandals, a long collared scarf wrapped around her neck like a cut-out trompe l’œil of a coat. The focus is on construction: collarless kimono coats and round skirts are opened by slits and panels; small jackets have darts that mark the waist. Shirt-dresses flow gracefully and precisely. Leather and OP, the latter both as a fabric and a pattern, define the spirit, mixed with floral prints and solid masculine fabrics in dry textures. The silhouette is solemn, in black, chocolate brown, aviator blue and green lit with touches of red and peach.“
