The world has turned upside down. What if clothing has turned upside down, too? For Fall Winter 2021.22 collection, Beautiful People is looking at things upside down, and downside up, to find a new perspective and a new balance. Inspired by 50s couture, the collection offers a new point of view on classic garments – Volumes are flowing, liquid and endlessly reconfigured, both ways.
Function stays, shape mutates. A cape becomes a fishtail dress. A down ruffled dress turns into a down opera coat. A map appears on a coat: an indispensable aid to navigate a world turned unfamiliar. Air force jackets become navy ones. Check patterns have up and down directions. A Gustave Verbeek drawing on a knit sweater has fish swimming against gravity. Wisteria and willow flower motifs migrate from summer to winter. Masculine and feminine collide. Hats can be flipped, too. – from Beautiful People.
