Discover SHUTING QIU‘s Spring Summer 2021 collection, that was inspired by Martin Parr’s documentary-style beach photography, and by the colourful neo-cubist paintings by Russian artist Natalia Goncharova, presented during Milan Fashion Week. The collection explores vacation at an imaginary beach during an ordinary summer. For SS21, Shuting Qiu woman is elegant, strong and confident.
One of my main source of inspiration for my collections has always been represented from my exotic journeys. While working on SS21, the fact that I couldn’t travel left me with a deep sense of nostalgia and an urge to respond to physical constraints and uncertainty with a message of freedom and light, which took the shape of a summer beach wonderland.
I felt the need to add a playful and cheerful tone and bring a sense of lightness to my woman, which is daring yet soft, powerful yet romantic, strong yet cheerful – Shuting Qiu
