N°21 x 7 For All Mankind presents a meeting between high-end fashion and premium denim
For Spring/Summer '22, the founder of American premium denim is striking out in a new direction through a collaboration with Italian luxury label N°21 led by Alessandro Dell'Acqua. Characterised by a genderless aesthetic, the collection of deconstructed silhouettes offers a new look; more fluid and conscious, celebrating inclusivity and belonging with a sustainable approach.
The capsule places denim at the cutting edge of style, plays with layers and proportions and is characterised by unexpected details. Exaggeratedly cut shirts, hooded sweatshirts and voluminous capes go hand in hand with wide-leg and slouchy cropped jeans - finished with overtly feminine details. A sculpted bra, a pussy-bow blouse and a chiffon-trimmed pencil skirt complete the dynamic looks. The minimalist colour palette features N°21's signature blush pink with 7 For All Mankind's iconic indigo wash.
The exclusive collaboration with N°21 marks the brand's 21st anniversary in the year 2021. The spirit of the collaboration is captured in a high-octane, directional campaign by creative forces Robin Gallegue (photographer) and Elodie David-Touboul (stylist). Together, they present a concept of aspirational fearlessness and individuality, visualised through the line-up of androgynous street-cast models.
"It was a perfect match from the very beginning. When we met Alesssandro Dell'Acqua, it was without a doubt a natural fit; uniting the sartorial forms of N°21 with our denim expertise felt both organic and compelling. Dell'Acqua took our versatile and familiar fabric and created something unique, elevated and disruptive that set a new course for the future of denim. Most importantly, the collection is produced in accordance with our strict sustainability criteria as part of our ongoing commitment to the environment."
- Francesca Toninato, Global CEO of 7 For All Mankind
"The contrast between the aesthetics of N°21 and the Californian attitude of the 7 For All Mankind brand is, in my opinion, the strength of this collaboration that brings together two different worlds in perfect harmony. Functionality, respect for the brand's heritage and unexpected details are the striking features of the capsule collection".
- Alessandro Dell'Acqua, N21 Founder and Creative Director
The consciously made collection is a perfect fit for the brand to design and manufacture beautiful products with a focus on ethical materials and practices that reduce the impact on the planet. This global initiative called Sustainable For All Mankind is a commitment to ensure that more than 80% of products will have sustainable characteristics through defined criteria for materials and manufacturing by 2023.
The collection will be launched globally on 3 December 2021.
