“Every album is something like a snapshot that only shows one moment in time. It shows what we feel and think right at that point in time, nothing more and nothing less.”
— Damon Albarn, lead singer, Blur
Pumping up the volume, Iceberg's Creative Director James Long unleashes a fall winter 2021/22 collection that channels the carefree eccentricity and angst of the 1990s Brit Pop, underground rap and acid rock scenes, as he continues to architect a fresh off-duty identity for both men and women.
Punctuated by 3D quilting and jacquard, ironic zips, gathered details and graphics re-interpreted for the world of luxury sport, co-ed looks take center stage in a live-streamed show aired during the January Milan’s Digital Fashion Week.
A sign of the times, this season’s womens wear selections culminate in a new, sporty sophisticate segment that pays homage to 90s raver silhouettes, retro styles, athletic stripes and the high-end wool check tailored suits that arose from late-20th century fashion scene.
Heeding traditional codes, ever-evolving athletic leisure wear becomes softer and more feminine and in turn, luxury knitwear embraces sports elements. Throughout the collection, a palette of muted primrose, egg-shell creams and greys is electrified by acid pink in order to energise a new, minimal silhouette.
Mens wear is amped up too, as the irreverence of 90s rap culture weaves itself into the collection via utilitarian closure details, contrasting tech-meets-knit textures and 3D puffer detailing. Sports wear is set ablaze by an all new heavy metal Iceberg label doused in racecar shades of black, red and yellow.
Infusing a dose of levity into the collection, Peanuts cartoon characters Snoopy and Woodstock are emblazoned onto ribbed-collared and oversized sweaters, underscoring Iceberg’s enduring flair for incorporating pop icons into the world of luxe knitwear.
A fusion of luxury sportswear, club culture and the innovative Italian knitwear techniques for which Iceberg is renowned and celebrated, live on in the fall winter 2021/22.
