Fall 2021 sum
The new season elegantly embraces casual outfits. Let’s make it comfortable but keep it chic. Lush fabrics provide a solid foundation for clothing that can be tailored to any mood or occasion. Fluid satin, smooth velvet and comfortable alpaca yarns are mixed with vintage denim, the softest lambskin and comfortable Tencel. As with every new season, we strive to make our creations more sustainable, developed under the Aware label.
Classics such as the pantsuit, executed in familiar and new colors, are accompanied by loungewear including soft hoodies and matching wide pants, as well as new shapes like culottes and cardigans without. sleeves. Light colors, ivory and seashell are present throughout the season. They get a wintery glow with undertones of brown, gray, black, and navy with mauve, greens such as teal and sea foam, and a lemon curry for added sparkle. It’s not about contrasts, it’s about feeling confident in a cool and sophisticated way. Whether in denim, faux leather or real, it’s the Summum woman, who wears her outfits with joy and pride.
Fall kicks off in a lush and luxurious way with rich fabrics in familiar fits and designs. Think – and smell – thick satins, punto milano (especially good in the new culottes and long cardigan), beautiful cupro and coated fabric for joggers and skirts. In short, this capsule is all about comfort, but super stylish comfort: adult streetwear with lots of fancy tops and pants that range from velvet skinny to high waisted paperbag pants with a metal bucket belt for a military feel. The tailored pants have a relaxed look thanks to Summum’s camouflage print.
What’s a cool season without the perfect leather jacket? The lambskin biker jacket is translated into a modern staple with its new Alpaca shade and gold trims. The equally lively cardigan and culottes to adapt to the season’s fancy all-leather look. Knits are always linked to the suddenly chilling summer days, with pretty openwork patterns, lightweight alpaca yarns like feathers, oversized cardigans and jacquard knits. This season’s hit are the oversized sleeveless sweaters, which come in both lightweight and chunky knits.
As it is the season for beautiful coats, we have a wide range of styles for you to choose from. Two trendy styles have gone from an item to a wardrobe classic. First, the Shacket, in brushed checks in a neutral colourway, followed closely by the puffer jacket in a mid-calf or hip-length trapeze silhouette for quick donning. Formal coats such as the wool gabardine coat with playful pleat details to create a balloon sleeve pair perfectly with the relaxed yet lush feel of Capsule 7. We anticipate our version of the classic lamby coat will become the new staple for many seasons to come.
Sophisticated but comfortable. But sophisticated. That sums up the alluring Capsule 7, with its sparkling sweaters, boyfriend blazers and wide leg pants in a wonderful palette of whites and grays paired with a dashing teal and seafoam blue. prints are added to the designs, and these designs are combined to create spectacular looks. The well-known tile is a classic, but the combination of tiles creates a modern and playful look. The same goes for the prints that we have already matched with great pieces such as the buttoned maxi dress and the short crinkle dress. Think of animals hiding among flowers or leaves mixed with geometric shapes. The pleated pants are made from a beautiful two-tone satin fabric that shines through when rolled up. The pants overall are slightly looser, with a subtle or slightly tapered bootcut fit. Details such as the metal zipper add a funky touch.
Sleeves grab attention with balloon shapes, removable shoulder pads and kimono-inspired cuts. The puffed sleeves give the classic suede shirt a contemporary edge. Lots of cardigans help keep the cold at bay: big with cool buttons or made from super soft spandex wool. The structure adds an accent to openwork knits or chunky cables. The soft and silky seafoam alpaca sweater is as comfortable as it is pretty. The yarn-dyed stripes and lurex yarn woven into the tops give even the most basic sweater that little extra.
The colors get warmer and warmer as the weather outside cools. Brown undertones such as pecan and alpaca are accompanied by navy, ivory and seashell, and intensified by lemon curry. All the colors combine beautifully in prints such as faded stripes. The tops have a wide range of necklines: the collection includes everything from V-necks with balloon sleeves to blouses with a stand-up collar and wide sleeves. There are super soft knits like the boyfriend sweater and the cocoon cardigan: a feminine contrast to the sleeveless V-neck sweater in sturdy cardigan knit and the long, chunky cardigans. The classic skater knit gets a makeover in a short, playful cable knit.
There is also a novelty in lambskin: the A-line pecan skirt. Admire the luxurious details, including the leather-covered buttons. Those looking for alternatives can go for a rich looking faux leather, which is super soft and supple. It comes in a boxy shirt and straight cut pants with a matching belt. And if these are accessories you are looking for, the patchwork sarong scarf is a playful addition to any outfit. You will find a matching scarf for each capsule, with exciting prints such as polka dots and cashmere and colorful stitching for an extra pop of color.
This season, we’re proud to introduce even more durable denims in four more styles. You can easily identify them with our Aware label. As in the regular collection, denims are both stylish and comfortable. Comfortable stretch is mixed with fabrics used for classic fits with vintage details, such as sewn front pockets. The new denim style this season is the culottes, which can be found in various fabrics in the collection. Pair with high boots to lengthen the legs. Another fresh style is two-tone denim with panels made from contrasting washes.
To make layering even easier, the shirts are loose fit, in light black denim with small studs on the shoulders. The belted denim dress is made from the same fabric with pleated details and voluminous sleeves. The oversized denim jacket is a deep dark indigo. It looks as cool with vintage washes as it does with regular colors.
Besides the pareo scarves with a beautiful patchwork per capsule composed of all the colors used in the collection, other accessories are worth mentioning.
For a complete look, chunky leather Chelsea boots and tall black or ivory lace-up ankle boots are the perfect finishing touch. The platform sneaker has also made a comeback and is just as fabulous.
New to this collection are the fun faux leather bags: quilted, pleated and almost indistinguishable from real leather. The cozy and comfortable vibe of this season is complemented by warm winter scarves and woolen hats.
