About Cinq à Sept Spring/Summer 2021
The Cinq à Sept Spring 2021 collection originally drew inspiration from natural environments around the world. Designed during COVID-19 while in quarantine, the thought process evolved and references from urban cityscapes began to play into how we thought about the collection.
Longing for the outdoors and finding space for natural elements in our urban environment of New York City became of utmost importance. Instinctively, the collection pivoted and the design and aesthetic became more about evoking a sense of love celebrating life’s little joys.
The prints and colors for Spring 2021 translate feelings of freedom and breeziness that we longed for during months of isolation. Enhanced colors and prints such as Ikat Floral and Woodblock Zebra are a reaction to the difficult times the world was facing. Fire Corals, Acid Yellows, and Peacock Blue hues are direct results of wanting to return to the scenic outdoors. This season there is an appreciation for having the freedom to explore and take advantage of nature’s rich offerings of color and texture.
