Conciseness, modularity, dynamism define the timeless modernity of Mila Schön fall|winter 2021 collection.
As in 1990 , the collection takes its inspiration from the mobile sculptures of Alexander Calder, destined to be moved from the air: the Mobiles. On this occasion Mila Schön had replicated the Mobiles in two-dimensional and polychrome form, waiting for them to be modified by the movement of those who will wear the dress, which in this case is a real work of art.
Fall|Winter 2021-22 collection is light, mobile, like Calder‘s aerial handwritings. It is made up of compact blousons, welcoming coats and double-breasted pencil-thin trenchcoats; rounded capes with hoods; shortened trousers, jumpsuits, A-line dresses; pullovers with multicolored motifs.
Curvilinear intarsia create color contrasts and geometric movements on the
silhouette, with a decidedly modernist feel. Curves and straight lines alternate in evolutive
balances, in graphic juxtapositions of yellow, blue, red, light gray and milk, plus the
unavoidable black and white. The same curvilinear geometries turn into brushstrokes on
coats, or into embroideries made of ribbons, jets and crystals with concentric shiny and
matte effects on dresses.
Clean cuts, liquid volumes and exact constructions reveal the beauty of the material:
double-faced crepe, cashmere, slow silk, bicolor felted wool cashmere.
The balance between the preciousness of the materials and the embroideries,
the accuracy of the workmanship, the mathematical exactness of the lines is resolved with
a gentle yet assured sign.
The woman’s personality sits at the center: the wardrobe is a repertoire of tools to
represent oneself, simply and effectively.
The collection was displayed on colorful structures freely inspired by the
work of Alexander Calder. The clothes hang from mobile metal elements that emphasize
their lightness and presence.
