The Boss Spring 2021 RTW collection captures the current mood within fashion of creativity and renewal, with a focus on craft, color, and artistry. The work of London-based artist William Farr, which unites flowers with found objects, inspires embroidered and printed pieces, while floral motifs and metal eyelet details are seen throughout the collection.
The show continues a decisive move towards casualization, revealing a sportier, younger vision of the BOSS man and woman. Men’s hoodies, sneakers, drawstring pants, and bomber jackets all find a place on the runway. Looks for her feature ruching, eyelets, and utilitarian details. Boss dedication to craft is evident, with many materials sourced in southern Germany, while embroidery and laser-cutting draw the eye to the detail of the pieces. A refreshing palette of blues, vivid emerald and soft rose enhances this new attitude, along with shades of sand, cream, and forest green.
Held at The Palazzo del Senato, this venue holds particular significance for the brand, as the first-ever Boss Womenswear show was held here exactly 20 years ago. This return, two decades on, was an opportunity to celebrate the enduring confidence, elegance, and strength of the Boss woman, as she moves together with the Boss man into a whole new era.
The tree-lined Boss Spring 2021 RTW runway, set amid the columns of the open-air courtyard, brought architecture and nature into perfect alignment. Every tree from the show space will now be donated to the city of Milan, and cared for by Boss for two years.
