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.
