We will also have witnessed many fashion moments … but it was not an easy year, 2021. It was first and foremost that of the restart, the one in which – as at the dawn of a new morning – we breathed a newfound strength, vigorous and overwhelming to face everything that would come later. From the physical return to the catwalks (after a 2020 dedicated to digital fashion shows) to television and public events in complete safety, fashion has been present everywhere. To underline one’s role and to navigate a new path, metaphorical more than ever. She, who until then had been temporarily put aside in favor of suits and loungewear of all kinds, has re-appropriated her own space. And we gave it to him, because it was exactly what we needed.
We wanted to retrace 2021 through 15 unforgettable fashion moments, who have written new pages in the history of fashion. You can relive them backwards, as we propose them, but also randomly: we are sure that they all still retain a special place in your memory. Starting from the end, where you will find Elodie in a long Versace dress on the stage of the Ariston Theater last March: in full lockdown, the Sanremo 2021 Festival consecrated the sequin trend as a (glamor) state of the soul, directly in our homes.
2021 was also the year of farewells and new arrivals for fashion: Pierpaolo Piccioli, creative director of the Valentino maison, has published an unexpected and surprising dedication never seen in history. A couturier who pays homage to his seamstress, declaring (already) her lack in the atelier after 53 years of honorable service. Still on the subject of “departures”, the English designer Daniel Lee at Bottega Veneta left us very baffled: shortly after, the Italian fashion house welcomed Matthieu Blazy. Still on the subject of fashion moment 2021, it is forbidden to forget what Giorgio Armani experienced at the venerable age of 87: the President Sergio Mattarella awarded him the title of Knight of the Grand Cross decorated with the Grand Cordon of the Order of Merit. An excellent year for King George.
