French label Reception has just unveiled their Fall ‘21 collection in a new lookbook that is full of optimism and excitement for the future.
Reception creator Pierre Boiselle has taken time during the Covid crisis to reflect on human fallibility and a world in upheaval. From the Indonesian Tsunami in 2006 killing over 200K people, to the Arab Spring rebellions; the 21st century has seen some of our most afflicting moments.
But with the new collection, titled ‘A Nameless Journey’, Boiselle has chanelled a distinct sense of there being better days ahead through Reception’s Fall ‘21 range. Embroidery riffs on social norms – enjoying a bottle of beer is placed next to a flying dove, while slogans such as ‘Before the mountain fell’ and a call for ‘Poetry’ provides an optimistic look ahead to a post-pandemic future.
Sage greens, chocolate browns and dark blues are lifted from earthen tones and provide the backdrop to the bolder and brighter aesthetic seen throughout the new range – a nod to nature of which from all things come.
Highlights from the range include a single raglan overcoats and snap shirts are made in boiled blue wool, and houndstooth pieces are blended in a wool, cotton and cashmere mix made in Portugal, using premium fabrics from Portuguese, English and Italian mills.
