For his Azzaro haute couture spring-summer 2021 collection, Olivier Theyskens renews the spirit of Maison Azzaro and unveils the portrait of a man and a woman through a series of reflections and shimmers. Due to sanitary measures require, Haute Couture Fashion Week was once again completely digitalized, forcing designers to be creative. For the occasion, Olivier Theyskens has created a short film of a little over two minutes, during which we can discover his new creations.
Embodied by the essence of freedom and sensual glamor of the founding years of the House, Couture creations highlight a sober but fluid line, punctuated by sparkling crystal shards. The silhouette challenges timelessness by playing with subtlety, between notions of simplicity and sophistication. The sparkle of sequins littering the shoulders of the men's suit evokes raindrops, while a dense fabric of tiny metallic scales covers a structured suit with a silver coating. The bodice of a long black dress shines with a sinuous flow of rippling dark crystals. Tactile materials such as silk velvet or lurex bring a carnal touch to draped dresses or oversized suits. Dresses in jacquard pattern are embroidered with ornaments interwoven with shards of platinum.
Dear to Loris Azzaro himself, sequins are used on shimmering oversized jumpsuits as well as dresses with asymmetrical slits that hug the curves of the body. Iconic signature, the motif of the three rings is repositioned on the open back of long sheath dresses with voluminous sleeves. An immaculate cocoon dress, made of gathered tulle ruffles, is embroidered on its collar and basque with a constellation of crystals.
Flirting between reality and dreamlike, the collection designed by Olivier Theyskens boldly expresses a direct vision of the Azzaro woman and man.
