Songbird by night
Everytime Wolf & Rita launch their new collection
we’re happily surprised. Always! Besides their own qualities,
they get their inspiration from unexpected sources.
Some gents or ladies from the past inspired them
and you never know who or what and that’s awesome!
‘Expanding your horizon’ is definitely in their vocabulary : )
The SS21 collection is inspired by two;
Dutch conceptual performance artist
and photographer Bas Jan Ader
& on the great literature classic Robinson Crusoe
by Daniel Defoe. Two intriguing artists,
leaving the world ‘an aura of mystery and fiction’.
“Our story is about the endless power of imagination
and the fantasy of a chance encounter
between Bas Jan Ader and Robinson Crusoe
on a tropical island somewhere, where they might
share a good amount of stories
while admiring the beauty of Nature
and the wonders of the universe.”
The collection is bright and graphic-ly artistic.
With strong crisp colours and soft versions
of colour tones, all combining very well together.
They are archetypisch forms, the new classics,
…like the printed short-sleeve shirt
and the comfy pants, long and short.
All in soft comfy but sophisticated fabrics.
Of a very high quality. Which is the standard
at Wolf & Rita, since they inherited the knowledge
of their dad. Shoes in the same prints,
diverse accessoires & the lovely
‘Anyway’ as a badge or as a print on a few designs.
A joyful collection in many ways.
Wolf & Rita always have eye for this,
which is a true good in these days;
they always credit their source.
But not just by mentioning them, their inspiration…
the artist is a real part of their campaign.
As a little art class or history class.
And that’s rare in fashion. Exactly that is
what I like about this family.
They are very humble, elegant and cool
at the same time. Everything they do… fits,
because they are ‘a real family’…
a family with beautiful values and a big vision.
And you can see that through all the details
in their collection(s). Magic!
Looking very much forward to this summer…
Thanks again for inspiring us!
