THE VENETIAN STRIPPER SS 21
VENETIAN STRIPPER is the title of the new SS21 Simona Vanth collection. I don’t know if there are any strippers or strip clubs in Venice nor have I ever read a story or seen a film about one. But in my mind, the Venetian stripper has the same confidently loose and hazy elegance as the watercolours Turner painted in his last visits there, or the glamour of Catherine Deneuve in Robert Aldrich’s 1975 film Hustle. She also has the same attitude as some of the teenage girls I noticed around Milan last year, who I could see were discovering their sexiness and femininity for the first time.

FUKU is Simona Vanth’s new garden sandal, inspired by legendary Japanese ceramicist Shoji Hamada and rural life in Liguria. It is manufactured with Sardinian cork, leather, Vibram outsoles and discarded beer tops and has been designed imagining a new wave of innocent travellers exploring the world and themselves this summer.
ARGENTO MATTO IN COLLABORATION WITH PABLO LIMON
ARGENTO MATTO is a collaboration between Simona Vanth and the industrial designer and artisan Pablo Limon. The starting point of the collaboration is our signature clog shape, originally inspired by traditional Chinese rice farmer clogs, Milanese architecture and the stories of Robert Louis Stevenson’s New Arabian Nights. The clog is manufactured in Italy from European beechwood, less than 50km from our shoe factory.
TRIPLE PEAK BAG WITH RAYON VERT INTERNATIONAL
The Triple Peak bag was designed in collaboration with, and is manufactured by, our friends Rayon Vert International, an ultralight outdoors lifestyle collective based in Milan. The original inspiration was a vintage, 1970s leather handbag from our archive which has been retuned into a contemporary all terrain unisex bag. Three coin-purse size bags are sewn from resistant lightweight fabric X-pac. Each of the three bags can be removed or added according to one’s personal needs and are attached to lanyards and a carabiner, allowing for cross-body or wrist-fastening. Our personal preference is to use all three bags contemporaneously, one for money, one for keys and hand sanitizer, another for our mask.
All bags are manufactured to order by Rayon Vert International in Milan and will be ready maximum two weeks from order day.
CARRY-OVER ICONS are Simona Vanth’s continuative models, carried over from previous seasons in classic and, sometimes, special editions, with small manufacturing tweaks to improve the comfort and longevity of the final product. While Simona Vanth also offers seasonal collections we don’t believe in the fashion system’s values of seasonal obsolescence.
