Simone Wild – AW21 ‘Lonely Planet’ – Text by Ivo Barraza Castaneda.

Where do you find comfort when the world is chaos? What is familiar when everything outside mutates as soon as you can recognize it? You have to build your own comfort, as close to your self as possible, you shelter in the joy of that one person you’re stuck together your entire life: yourself.

This is what resonates in my mind as I go through the lookbook and collection notes of the new Simon Wild collection. The brand is finding strength within its own roots, materials they know very well, the base materials that were since the beginning: velvet and mesh. Softer than ever, more comforting than ever, the Simon Wild AW21 collection is all the armor you need in a never ending introvert dream, you can escape in these pieces into a more beautiful place, a place within.

Hello, my name is Ivo. My three favorite things in life are: Thinking deeply about visual creation. I like having long discussions of ideas that might reinvent the course of history. And finally, spending time with the people I love. Since I was a child, I was always involved in some activity around plastic arts, music and literature. That’s how I learned to sew by hand at the age of five, which later led me to focus on my main professional media: Fashion Design.
