CHRISTIAN WIJNANTS presented the Spring Summer 2021 In pursuit of happiness collection, inspired by designer’s childhood memories of his family garden and Summer days spent in beautiful surroundings and cities in Italy. The collection explores what happiness really is, and what really matters in life. This season Christian Wijnants is all about solace, positivity and hope.
Photographer Stig De Block directed the video and captured the lookbook featuring models Tessa Bruinsma at Elvis Models and Bastian Bergstrom at Uno Models. In charge of hair styling and makeup was beauty artist Sanne Schoofs. Video editing by Ward Geerts. Eyewear by Gentle Monster.
“In his SS21 collection built around this jardin secret from his childhood, Christian Wijnants dresses women in free-flowing silhouettes with extreme volume and enlarged flower prints. The handdrawn daisies, irises and lilies fill any room with soothing feelings. Alongside new key pieces, timeless trench coats with neutral colors and impeccable cuts add a clean aesthetic to the flower garden of SS21. Innovative materials – such as Tyvek, water-repellent canvas and coated cotton – add an extra layer of protection throughout the collection. A collection that encourages you to pursue happiness from within.” – Christian Wijnants
