Nature is magical, and magic is all around, a fluid continuum between men, animals, rocks, mountains, forests, and lakes. There are moments in which a Scottish or Irish landscape still retains a sense of druidic knowledge, of wise men who loved and respected their land with its intense green landscape which nourishes and cures, and its hazy air which protects from the dragon’s breath.

Then, as if in a dream, the spell moves to swinging London, suspended between tradition and new fashions in spired by the stars of British pop-rock.

AVANT TOI’s new smart journey ventures in these atmospheres which, between romanticism and restlessness, indulge and exalt creativity and valorize the themes which are important to the brand . Soothing shapes, ample volumes, noble and sustainable materials whose colors are inherited from nature: in addition to the usual palette, we can find Ochre, Mustard, Chocolate, Wine, Blue Navy, Ocean, Irish Green, Apple Buzz.

The Avant Toi Fall Winter 2021 Woman dreams of the North and of lands with a fascinating asperity. Places and times in which comfort and convenience are not wild because she owns a rich collection of refined garments in warm and enveloping materials: each one is to be loved and combined with great freedom according to personality and mood.

The smart tour can start with one of the innovations of this season, presented in white for the first time. A line in silk combined with thick wool with an Irish treatment: the sweater with jacquard clouds in relief, or with a stockinette stitch dusted with a silver lamination; the turtleneck with maxi pied - de - poule with lasered tuft and destroyed details; and the ribbed sweater with fur - stitch sleeves. An ample turtleneck is made unique by its jacquard, hand - cut in certa in points to create original fringes which are then hand - colored with a camouflage effect in Ice tones.

The total look can be completed by a knitted pencil skirt or by pants in iridescent silk with the same color hues.

A new coloration technique provides peculiar and ever - changing results, appearing like a scratching effect on the felted jacket, a nocturnal frost on the fisherman’s rib stitch, and real flashes of light on silk.

Another novelty is the re - elaboration of the classic diamond pattern , almost a decomposition in which it loses its geometry and takes on a pictorial aspect with hand made colorings which appear to be reflections, according to the applied tints. The outfit in mustard degradè velvet has a very rock effect, with its seventies jacket and pants and a flannel shirt in bright velvet.

The collection continues with a series of garments in merinos jersey, with a new fur effect: the overcoat in blended Chocolate color, with a shawl collar and internal l ining, or the unlined Mustard coat with a round neckline, large pockets, and pressure buttons. The fur effect is also present on the front of the chanel coat in Ochre colored cashmere, lined with silk.

As always for Avant Toi’s collections, nature’s inspi ration also manifests in many other details. A unique animalier V - neck sweater in Ochre cashmere and silk looks like a real leopard’s mane thanks to its hand painted camouflage effect and black spots which are added one by one with a needle - point technique . A bouquet of large, variegated flowers appears on the round - neck sweater in Mustard cashmere and silk, and on the silk skirt in Wine color to match with the coarse wool sweater.

As usual, AVANT TOI combines accessories which accentuate the collection’s t hemes, materials, and colors to create original total looks. The large quadrello squares, iconic of the brand, are developed in Casentino pilling, in silk with a large cashmere border , in camouflage colored cashmere, with lasered mottling, and with a light ribbed knit with embroidered flowers.

A novelty which is filled with memories comes with the large scarves with pockets, in Taupe ribbed knit with a brine effect, in Ocean with needle - pointed insertions in silk, and in White fur stitch.
