Junko Shimada Fall-Winter 2020-2021 Paris Fashion Week Ready-to-Wear. RUNWAY MAGAZINE ® Collections. RUNWAY NOW / RUNWAY NEW
Press-release: After having robbed the Florence Offices, having seized the treasures of Italian Painting, Junko Shimada invents a 21st century renaissance wardrobe.
Revelation of materials and textures: ultra dense cashmere, fluffy mohair, purses of corduroy or corduroy, but also ultra supple leathers and super mat organza, duchess satins resonate with the nobility and sophistication of this era.
Jubilation of prints and graphic patterns that unfold throughout the collection, vibration of multiplied “Vinci” jacquards, freshness of the seedlings of Botticelli flowers, mysteries of oversized chiaroscuro landscapes, all take part in this journey in time and space.
Detonation of colors, contrasts of electric tartans yellow & black, bright blue & black, purple or orange & black, sparkling black peas on a ruby or blood orange background, squeaks of velvety tones of autumn rust, purple, mouse, moss with tart nuances of precious stones or coppery golds and of course, the immaculate white of a false virginity.
Annunciation of silhouettes, perfecto suits, puffer jackets and pencil skirts, dust cover and draped dress, maximum knitwear or caftans on example pants, but also draped tunics, chasubles and blouses with “Belle Ferronnière” sleeves, Madonna coat and infant skirts, caressed with frivolities and silky falbalas.
Unveiling and protecting, revealing and hiding, seducing and diverting, affirming and suggesting, the fall-winter of Junko Shimada is a declaration of love towards oneself and against all hostilities.
