Blue is the Freest Color for N°21 SS18

By Nicole Gabe

June 20, 2017

The N°21 spring/summer 2018 collection, which debuted during Milan Fashion Week, was inspired by relaxation and optimism. A touch of frivolity was expressed in the line, as well as a sense of freedom. Prints included surfers in action on a white shirt, and beach games on a yellow trench inspired by late 80s images of Matt Dillon. Fabrics were all about feel, in soft rich textures. Blue dominated the color scheme, with Alessandro Dell’Acqua, creative director of N°21 saying, “Blue is very important in a man’s wardrobe since it mixes easily with any other color. I use it a lot because I love it: for me, it holds both the idea of freshness and the idea of freedom.”

“I designed a collection where freedom prevails over construction and lightness describes a wish for escape—not the type that’s synonymous with flight from present reality, for in his detachment from normal life the man I have in mind expresses the will we all have to rise above day-to-day goings-on in a world that seems to make everything very difficult, very arduous,” continued Dell’Acqua.
