Fresh perspectives, new icons, modern mood. BOSS captures the spirit of Generation Next in a new collection that mixes statement styles and casual silhouettes with consummate ease.
A sense of possibility is in the air, as sporty designs are combined with tailored pieces – a baseball jacket with suit pants for him; slouchy track pants with a tailored coat for her. The iconic BOSS suit is transformed from purely professional outfit to everyday fashion staple, reworked in more casual, adaptable iterations for the way we live now.
The entire collection is designed to be mixed and matched by the individual wearer, and is conceived as an invitation to play with easy, modern style, where rules are made to be broken.
The base palette of black, cream, and camel is brought to life by the addition of vivid orange, red ochre, navy, tourmaline, and mineral blue. The natural shades of ochre and cream are reflected in the set design, which is inspired by the rock formations of Big Sur, California, and their ability to provide artists and writers with a fresh perspective.
The freedom of spirit that defines L.A. is a notable influence, with the city’s natural beauty, cool sporty style, and relaxed attitude providing rich sources of inspiration.
The timeless aesthetic of baseball, referenced in previous collections, is once again evident, with leather baseball bags, and sporty bomber jackets in wool-cashmere and leather. Collegiate styles for him and for her are embellished with contrast chenille patches, handmade in Germany, reflecting the BOSS dedication to craft and workmanship.
Heritage meets innovation throughout. A tonal check is made new with the addition of striking embroidery, while the same check pattern is also combined with iconic stripe motifs and sporty shapes. Unisex crossbody bags add contemporary appeal to the accessories collection.
Outerwear highlights for her include a voluminous bomber with detachable down- filled inner puffer. Elevated double-breasted coats for him are accompanied by more unexpected pieces – a hybrid coat and bag design, and a 3-layered parka in glossy nylon with detachable hem.
Revealing an instinctive feel for the contemporary mood, BOSS Fall/Winter 2021 draws on the heritage of the house to explore entirely new possibilities. From modern tailoring to fluid dresses and oversize outerwear, each piece combines elevated fabrics and techniques with an inimitable, easygoing attitude.
