The latest Boss spring collections offer soft pastels, sweet florals and deconstructed design for the ultimate in comfort.

BOSS revealed an uplifting, colourful and relaxed Spring 21 collection with an outdoor show at the Palazzo del Senato in Milan. The space holds particular significance for the brand, as the firstever BOSS Womenswear show was held there 20 years ago. This return, two decades on, was an opportunity to celebrate the enduring confidence, elegance, and strength of the BOSS woman, as she moves together with the BOSS man into a whole new era.

The Spring 21 collection captures the current mood within fashion of creativity and renewal, with a focus on craft, colour, and artistry. The work of London-based artist William Farr, which unites flowers with found objects and inspires embroidered and printed pieces, while floral motifs and metal eyelet details are seen throughout the collection. The show embodied a decisive move towards a more casual look, revealing a sportier, younger vision of the BOSS man and woman. Men’s hoodies, sneakers, drawstring pants, and bomber jackets all made an appearance on the runway.

Looks for her featured ruching, eyelets, and utilitarian details. The BOSS dedication to craft is evident, with many materials sourced in southern Germany, while embroidery and laser-cutting draw the eye to the detail of the pieces. Simple shorts, wide-leg pants, and super-soft knits lend the collection a more easygoing feel than ever before. And a refreshing palette of blues, vivid emerald and soft rose enhances this new attitude, along with shades of sand, cream, and forest green. The collection is almost unisex in nature in that the menswear embraces the same florals and pastels as featured in the women’s offering.

And loose flowing lines give a nod to the current working-from-home culture that has seen us all seeking casual-smart attire that both looks and feels great.✤
