Sottish Artist Georgia Russell is the inspiration behind the collection, transforming paper objects into sculptures using a chisel.

The Gabriele Colangelo Pre-Fall 2021 collection, interpreted by Veronika Kunz through Senta Simond’s shots, expresses the idea of a personality which is strong and kind at the same time. The colour palette combines soft neutrals, ranging progressively from white wool to beige and camel, with shades of coffee brown, clay and intense hues of light blue and water green.
Intentionally irregular pleatings convey sculptural three-dimensionality to pencil skirts and silk dresses enveloping the body. Textile surfaces gain movement through the refraction of light on wrinkled velvet, giving new lines to tailor cut suits. Splongè leather crafts precious oversized shirts and asymmetrical overlaps on chemisiers featuring metallic elements.
Maxi ribbed pullovers in a wool and cashmere blend, characterized by sensual openings on the back, alternate with micro ribbed dresses featuring long leather fringes hooked on the neck slits.
Raw-cut boiled wool with long-pitched stitchings, soft shearling with an astrakhan effect and double cashmere have been selected for shouldered coats, presented both straight and shaped on the waist.
Tube boots featuring chain and ball bracelets on the ankles and braided sandals with fringes on the front are paired with hemmed skirts and elongated pants with side slits on the bottom.
