Condensing reflection, love for nature, contemplation the FW 2021 collection by Luca Larenza. A proposal that relies on the natural tones of beige and blue, and that warms through enveloping fabrics and textures, as soft as the merino wool cardigans with alternating points, or maxi-pullovers in wool with multicolor pixel motif or braids.

A collection that does not want to be only a reflection of his style, one that transposes a nostalgic taste for classical art and the desire to disperse in one’s own thoughts, but also a means of Social Responsability. The designer has in fact cooperated with Campania region for the historical-cultural recovery of the old looms of Real Belvedere of San Leucio. The historic site was born in 1779 from the dream of King Ferdinand to create an autonomous community, based on the production of the finest silk, now well known all over the world for its refinement and elegance.

The monumental complex contains among its numerous rooms a small jewel of industrial archeology, a large room with wooden looms for the production and processing of perfectly functional silk, therefore contextualized in a permanent exhibition that makes up the Belvedere Silk Museum in San Leucio. The restoration of the prestigious frames by the brand has allowed them to give them a new life, returning to shine and to continue with pride to perpetrate their historical testimony. The works, which began in early December, ended during the first days of 2021.

Right here, between history and charm, the new collection by Luca Larenza was shot, in a continuum between past and future.
