Bologna-based designer Luca Magliano debuted their Fall/Winter 2021 collection. Magliano plays with proportions and materials as well as phallic symbolism. Magliano is also active in supporting independent organizations fighting for the rights of queer communities.
In a similar vein to Magliano’s FW20 collection, the FW21 lookbook is androgynous at times and contemporary throughout thanks to its subversive take on formalwear, but also works with a wide range of lush materials that elevate plenty of looks. For example, the blazer-tucked-into-suit pant situation and harnessed with a tight belt around the waist is beautifully tailored and considered, but of course goes against the usual constraints of a suit, while the henley that’s worn underneath an oversized blazer is giving off a very “underground NYC in the ’80s” vibe.
Leather jackets paired with leather berets look somewhat Tom of Finland-inspired, while the cream cable knit jumper with a phallic symbol on the front bares all without the need for interpretation. However, for those who want billowing graphic-covered silky shirts, super oversized denim workwear-inspired jackets (that once again allude to the styles of NYC), or playful cherub-graphic cardigans, then Magliano also has this in abundance.
The FW21 collection from Magliano is expected to release in the coming months at a wide range of stockists, all of which can be found on the Magliano website.
