PENNYBLACK FW21 Collection
For Fall-Winter 2021, Pennyblack is imbuing its heritage with eclectic modern influences. Taking the stylistic traits that express the dreams and desires of our times and projecting them into the future with renewed energy and a clear vision, asserting a precise identity. The setting for this new collection could only be Milan, Made in Italy’s fashion capital. On a perfect day from morning to night, the sights of the city breathe life into a style that offers more than certainty. Authentic values, now more refined than ever.
Classic coats and pea-coats, impeccably tailored, with constructed silhouettes and wraparound cuts sit side by side with shearling-effect eco coats and urban attitude. The dresses, enriched with 80s references, depict a mindful femininity through draping, puff sleeves, crossover designs and sashes that highlight the waist.
The soft volumes and gentle lines of the knitwear offer optimum comfort, with 3D textures and ruffle details. The tricot twin sets, the matching jumper-trouser and jumper-skirt sets offer numerous outfit options. Sticking with the theme of comfort are new items for the 24J collection, made entirely of jersey: minimalist dresses and suits, versatile enough to wear 24/7. Next-generation fibres are used to create gritty leather-effect looks in a stylish capsule collection of dresses, skirts, trousers and shirts. The offer includes a variety of suits, from 60s couture styles in basketweave lamé with slim-fit jackets and miniskirts to flowing double-breasted styles to pair with dresses in the same pattern. These are complemented by menswear-inspired shirts enlivened with ruffles, flounces and jewels.
Neutral colours dominate, from cream, to camel, to tobacco, to be worn en camaïeu with similar shades or contrasted with two bold colour palettes: one in fuchsia, ruby and burgundy, and one in green with ochre speckles on the warm tones and lime on the cool tones. The prints offer abstract reworks of floral prints and graphic animal prints, while designs drawing on tailoring stick with traditional patterns: chevrons, Glen plaid and checks.
