The new collection of exaggerated overshirts, hoodies, and capes paired with slouchy wide-legged crop jeans feature overtly feminine codes, complete with a sculpted bra, pussy-bow blouse, and chiffon-trimmed pencil skirt for fully dynamic looks. The collection plays with gendered proportions and fluidity, too (see: No. 21’s signature blush pink and and 7 For All Mankind’s iconic indigo blues). This debut arrives just in time for No. 21’s 21st (!) anniversary and includes an accompanying campaign shot by Robin Galiegue, who directs androgynous street-cast models with a powerful message of inclusivity and fearless individuality. The spirit of the partnership is a commitment to the environment, with pieces designed for people across all spectrums of identity.
