Like many designers, Kiko Kostadinov has adapted to the restrictions forced the Coronavirus pandemic to deliver a digital presentation of his Spring/Summer 2021 collection. Titled 00102021 SIROKKÓ, the seasonal range was introduced via a Robi Rodriguez directed visual focused on models presenting the offering in Gothic Revival rooms of England’s Strawberry Hill House.
Spurred by a reference to the wind that blows from Northern Africa through the Mediterranean to Italy, Florence became a major point of inspiration. The Medicis and the 1973 Roberto Rossellini film L’età di Cosimo de Medici started the SS21 collection’s design built on 15th- and 16th-century dress. Kostadinov looked to reinterpret court styling and aristocratic themes of another time for present-day fashion.
Bright tones, hits of patterns, unmistakeable cuffing and distinct slitting marks the collection indebted to silhouette manipulation. The celebrated designer’s expertise in patterning carries the progressive nature of the SS21 collection effortlessly in seamless displays of outfitting. For the first time ever, Kostadinov has also prepared his own footwear model which comes in the form of square-toed boots. Coming in tones of green and purple, the boots continue the slit detailing accompanied by Victorian-esque motifs that match the themes found in the garments prepared
