The new women’s range, consisting of 21 styles infused with the brand’s aesthetic combining glamour accents with street references, will be presented twice a year to buyers and will hit stores before the pre-fall and resort collections, respectively.
The first lineup will be sold at the No. 21 boutiques, as well as the label’s e-commerce and the most important department and multi-brand stores in the world, starting from May. The second collection will be available in November.
“In this first N21 Transitional I collected what, from my point of view, better represents the brand philosophy,” Dell’Acqua said. “I actually started from a masculine/feminine inspiration juxtaposing it with an incursion into the irreverent punk aesthetic and a self-confident, sporty attitude.”
The N21 Transitional debuting range includes revisited women’s staples, including a tartan coat embellished with a faux fur collar, multicolor leopard printed dresses, mannish cardigans paired with pencil skirts, oversized parkas to be worn with Bermuda pants, as well as printed pajama sets and Dell’Acqua’s signature see-through frocks. The offering is completed by accessories, spanning from Mary Jane shoes and pumps to the Bow and Alice bags and the range of small leather goods.
According to the company, N21 Transitional, which will retail from 450 euros for knitwear to 750 euros for outerwear, will key to better serve those markets, including Asia and the United States, where sales are not driven by seasonality.
