Chapter III: La Bonne Aventure

Autumn Winter 2021 Fashion Film

Milano Fashion Week

The new Vaderetro chapter stems from the origin of the brand creation itself: the travel. For the last two years, the designers have travelled the world from the United-Kingdom and France to Morocco, reaching a current location in Italy, longing for the next destination.

The source of inspiration of the season is one of the most important minority groups in Europe namely: The Roma people. Chapter III named “La Bonne Aventure” takes root in the French expression “Diseuse de Bonne Aventure”; in English: fortune-teller in reference to the mystic yet potent figure of the Roma women reading strangers’ future.

The designers gathered their own personal experience as citizens of the World with these mesmerising nomads and never-ending travellers in the hope to transmit a powerful message: Trust the path, chase freedom, carve your own destiny.

Vaderetro guideline for this A/W collection follows the Roma process to create their own culture: bringing together all the cultures of the countries they visit and taking from these cultures what suits the most to the ethnic group they belong to. The garments channel this fascinating miscellaneous of aesthetics, traditions juxtaposed with heritage to transcend fashion trends, to create an eternal style. From long skirts and dresses to structured blazers and gangster-loose pants layered with heavy knits, the overlay is key and builds further harmony to the full looks.

Chapter II: Little Italy

Spring Summer 2020 Fashion Show

Between around 1880 and 1924, more than four million Italians immigrated to the United States, the majority fleeing grinding rural poverty in Southern Italy and Sicily. Today, Americans of Italian ancestry are the nation’s fifth-largest ethnic group. In the Second Chapter of Vaderetro’s Memoirs, we explore and deepen the theme of immigration — a most current topic worldwide that doesn’t spare Italy, exploring the history of the Italian immigration to the United States. The capsule SS21 lays emphasis on the flourishing of the Italian-American culture in the 1950s / 1960s with new garments that brings together the Italian unflinching sense of style and the American laid-back allure.
