Maisie Wilen follows the principle of critically questioning old things and, through the Spring 2021 collection, challenges the viewer to rethink his or her perspective. Everything is based on the investigation of how the image of a garment can be manipulated by its design.
Loose, matching silhouettes, which create an exfoliating illusion, were skilfully staged for the presentation. Included are not only popular elements such as jersey or perforated knitwear, but also new fabrics such as silk and metal mesh.
Maisie Schloss, the designer behind the label, said about the collection that it was primarily about observing and not about live interaction. Even though she had already dealt with this in February, the lockdown offered the perfect conditions: “…this inspired me to create the fantasy-like imagery seen in the prints as quarantine warped and idealized the now inaccessible.”
