    N21 CELEBRATES ITS 10 YEAR ANNIVERSARY WITH AN EDITION OF 12 ICONIC PENCIL SKIRTS

    10 YEARS IN THE FASHION GAME - N21

    The brand has gone through the last decade of a historical period still difficult to understand, always communicating a well-defined identity. 

    That of a woman with character, exalted by essential and almost severe forms for some, while for others an act of rebellion against fickle trends and the demonstration that staying true to yourself pays off, especially when you know how to do it lightly. N21's clothes revolve around this concept: you can see it from the contrast of the lines with the materials, from the desire to enhance personality with respect to beauty, from spontaneous sensuality with respect to forced sensuality. And you can understand it from the latest capsule collection on the occasion of this important anniversary which confirms the pencilskirt as the brand's iconic and definitive garment.

    12 models for 12 archive fabrics, where the "rigid" element of the tube skirt is combined with embroidery, sequins, duchesses or tweed originally designed for other garments. In combination with just one detail, a bra, so that nothing can shift the attention from the main protagonist and remind us that the best way to cope with mixed up periods is always to choose a garment that makes us feel good, even sensual. Even in this choice, N21 confirms that it has always made its feminine, open minded and anti-conformist nature a distinctive feature. In this new capsule, upcycling gives the garment a new value, authentically fluid, but also becomes an expressive tool in which no detail is wasted.

    THESE ARE THE ESSENTIAL POINTS:

    Each element was born as always from Alessandro Dell'Acqua's pencil. No item in this collection is more than 10 years old, yet each garment is already an archive piece. Each skirt has been numbered but no element in this series is the same as the other. Starting from the most classic piece of all N21 has created a rebellious collection showing us its lightest side ever.
