One of the main themes of the latest collections – both for him and for her – was the future. Not meant as a science fiction future, but the immediate one, the “after-lockdown” one. Many designers have wondered how to bring hope back, how to create joy and liveliness through their collections. Many imagined returning to society and many wondered the meaning of clothes today – from a moral, social and cultural point of view.
Lorenzo Serafini is no exception and, thinking of his Resort 2021 for Philosophy, he wanted to focus on the well-being that clothing can create, when well chosen, and on the fundamental role they keep playing in our relationship with the world. If many things change after this experience, it is also true that some things will always remain the same. For example, the desire to go out and have fun, meet and get to know each other.
These are more or less the sensations that Philosophy Resort collection evokes. The looks are very feminine and sexy and reinvent known stylistic codes but in a modern key, for example with innovative combinations of fabrics. We like tweed bustiers and shaped tops, but also suits with matching tops and men’s shirts.
