Rather than a statement, this collection is an inner trip through all the things we missed this year.
The glory days.
The touch of others.
The feel of power when rocking the streets….
It’s a playful journey towards a new self, from the exuberant days of the childhood, through the youthful glory of 70s and the dramatic 90s air, toned down with natural accents.
The elongated silhouette, on which Andrea focused her attention this season, is accentuated by the juxtaposition between the clumsy grace of the oversized cuand the dramatic emphasis of the shoulders. The lines are longer, more languid, even slouchy. Light shirts with structural cus, 1970s fared trousers, mid-length jersey dresses- caress the body rather than constrict it. The tension is present in the spectacular neopren hood with yellow lime strap detail and the tactical vest interpreted in glossy black, that adds starkness and accent to the matte cotton based fabrics.
The theatrical volumes are calmed by discrete ironies like the mother of pearl buttons. The tender innocence of the rounded collar that can be worn as a breastplate plays an important role on emphasising the definition of andrea szántó woman, who’s in control of her emotions by owning her past. Everything in her life led to here and now. To a time where she is self aware, self absorbed and self sufficient.
