Last year, we interviewed Mr. Marco Re, Boglioli’s Creative Director, to learn more about the care for details, the inspiration that is coming from both tradition and innovation as well as the future direction of the Boglioli brand. Now, it's time for that future direction reflected in their Spring/Summer 2021 collection, entitled Plein Soleil.
Through the casual elegance of the protagonists of the above mentioned film, Boglioli wants to narrate the style and attitude of spring summer 2021. The film shimmers with the seductive heat of an Italian summer, and the costumes, atop the lithe, magnetic frame of Alain Delon, playfully pull at classic codes of relaxed irreverence.
Their looks center around our iconic garment-dyed jackets, though this time they are more lived-in, in lighter combination of tencel with cotton and linen, touchable fabrications like cotton/silk blend, solaro dyed, performance wool, herringbone and prince-of-wales linen, and tropical weight cashmere.
Jackets take on new forms to become work jackets and painter jackets, outerwear meets the world of tailoring creating a contemporary style. The clothes have fresh lines and soft fabrics. The light blazer, worn with the soft shirt, creates a timeless, sophisticated outfit.
The color palette closely follows that of the film: sun-drenched earth tones, cool blues and frothy whites set against the weathered greys of ancient ruins, the yellow of the lemons, the bright colors of the flowers and it is immediately Mediterranean style, unmistakable, timeless.
Spring Summer 2021 collection builds on the principle that clothing should endure and free the wearer. He shouldn’t be bound by trends or rigid construction, and should be free to focus on what makes him unique —the Boglioli DNA.
