AZZARO FALL 2021 COUTURE
Party vibes in the post-pandemic time
Azzaro’s Fall 2021 Couture show that took place on July 5 was elegantly intriguing. A silhouette with fluid and sophisticated lines permeating the Azzaro night, Creative Director Olivier Theyskens evokes the dream in an ode to the evening and incants the real to sublimate it further.
In the black backdrop, the show dazzled the audience with the first look, a sequin smoking suit. The silver sequin is sparkling in the darkness, as flashing as a disco ball. The man’s suit is fully embroidered with microblades of sparkling sequins. And the sequins are also displayed in a series of micro jewel dresses for women. Embroideries of pearls, crystals and sequins of all sizes spread out across the collection with their multiple sparkles, rivaling with the brilliance of liquid lamé while necklace and chain embellishments adorn the edges of dark silk crepe styles.
Sharp sets of asymmetry cut the silhouette in an interlacing of pure modernist lines. Strong shoulders or a plunging neckline meet a long slit stretching from bottom to top of the dresses. Olivier Theyskens enhances the couture codes with the perfect balance of opposites where flow and structure, shadow and light, glamour and sobriety combine.
2021 is Theyskens’ second year at Azzaro. Since day one, he has marked his signature in the brand’s design. Feminine and masculine silhouettes echo each other in shiny or icy materials in a sober palette of blacks punctuated with silver, iridescence and pure white.
