This week in Milan, fashion houses are presenting Fall/Winter 2021 collections both in person and online. Here, we’re sharing what’s new from Iceberg, Tod’s, Sunnei, and Woolrich.
For his latest collection, Iceberg’s Creative Director James Long channeled an eccentric spirit brought on by carefree happenings during the 1990s—underground rap, British Pop, and acid rock atmospheres. New unisex looks featured 3-D quilting, gathered details, graphics that re-interpreted luxury sport, and retro-inspired details in silhouettes, patterns, and materials. Between hues of cream, grey, and acid pink, we took note of athletic stripes and check prints on tailored suits, as well as characters from the “Peanuts” series on ribbed and oversized sweaters. For a hint of femininity, Snoopy and Woodstock are emblazoned on basic pieces—incorporating cultural icons on luxe knitwear for next year’s cooler months.
Tod’s reveals its latest line by Creative Director Walter Chiapponi through a visual story entitled “#sevenT.” As a riff on the days of the week, followed by “T” for both “Tod’s” and “time,” the label’s Fall/Winter 2021 collection is inspired by an array of touchpoints—the Giuseppe De Finetti-designed Villa Ronchi in Vigevano, the actor Lorenzo Zurzolo. Further interpreting classic styles, the new collection aims to express style through warm, earthy tones on woold, tweeds, and thick cottons. Pieces of note include a trench coat, a shirt-jacket, riding pants, ribbed sweaters, and a college sweatshirt, which all aim to dress a free, cosmopolitan gentleman. Shoe styles—like lace-up shoes with Norwegian stitching, ankle boots with Texan heels, and multi-material sneakers—complement deconstructed bags and geometric briefcases.
Sunnei continued its use of digital characters to show its new collection, virtually modeling a line that lends its styles to the future. Dresses, coats, tops, and trousers are joined by unconventional accessories—like large satchels with asymmetrical buckles across the chest, hats with side ties that hang down to the waist, and backpacks with openings at their tops for dogs. Shirts and dresses are layered atop long-sleeved tops and coats, and paired with puffed scarves, bright gloves, and chunky boots with dotted rubber treds. New for the collection, as well, is a monogram print bearing the brand’s name, as well as a striped coat and collar combination for dogs to wear.
After nearly 200 years of fashion, Woolrich reveals an empowering collection that’s focused on function, comfort, and versatility. Regardless of the elements one might face in their urban or natural landscape, the brand is debuting three sub-collections to help combat wind, rain, and snow. “Charming Versatility” maximizes adaptability through clothing with water-repellent overshirts, insulated short jackets, and lightweight capes that provide protection and warmth. “Authentic Comfort” takes a look at Woolrich’s archive and reinterprets classics with functional fabrics, like waxed cotton parkas, knitted jackets with detachable microfiber sleeves, and trench coats with premium down. And “Iconic Performance,” which revolves around the brand’s partnership with Gore-Tex®, welcomes pieces that are lightweight, wind-proof, water-resistant, and breathable, with the addition of wider hoods, welded seams, and oversized pockets.
