BOTTER has offered a backstage view of its FW20-21 collection at Paris Fashion Week. The show marks the label’s Paris debut, bringing to the runway a medley of vibrant colors and cuts rendered through Rushemy Botter and Lisi Herrebrugh’s distinctive design lens.

The label has been known for its ecological stance, both in the fabrics it sources and the poignant sociopolitical messages imbued in its collections. BOTTER’s critically-acclaimed SS18 “fish or fight” collection featured a series of inflatable toys that served as satirical messages addressing pollution in the Caribbean. But the brand decided to go another route this time around, dressing up the styles with transparent inflatable plastics instead. Apart from the props, the collection highlighted an assemblage of exaggerated volumes and bright palettes that take shape in the form of billowing coats, reconstructed denim, thick shearling jackets, glittery zip-ups, intricately cut knitwear, wool blazers, clean-cut trousers and graphic shirts.

One noteworthy piece is a dressy shoe harness, which was presented with the Nike Air VaporMax. The silhouette’s familiar mold was seen at the top half, complemented by a detachable midsole. It’s the sleek bottom part of black dress shoes, characterized by an almond toe and a slightly raised heel. Other highlights like iridescent fireman’s jackets, wool coats, a drapey long-sleeve with cracking paint and a “Happy Earthday” graphic, embroidered knitwear, pleated button-ups, silver-toned shirts and other tops with long plastic tassels round up the colorful showcase.
