The Letasca FW_20/21 collection is a continued exploration and expression of the brand’s utilitarian attitude. With a functional and refined approach, pieces translate the needs of the urban explorer who roams the city and the wild, being ‘hands-free’. An evolution of the concept of Carry & Wear, the collection focuses on ‘measures of identity’, where identity is treated as a variable measured by the daily items users put into their Letasca pockets.
An aesthetic research on proportions and measurements along with architectural references and methodology find place in the construction of the collection, creating jackets of varying lengths and body, functional vests, sweatshirts, t-shirts and trousers.
Each piece has character, from neo-formal and tactical styles to travel-ready and functional garments. Letasca attitude is defined by unconventional and utilitarian components such as suggestive prints, tech-magnetic closures, contrast draw-string cords and tech-performance anti-drip fabrics made for urban wear. Chosen materials and details are in iconic colours of the brand, namely black, military green, dark blue and ice grey contrasted through shades of copper, camel and petrol blue.
Accessories like transformable vests that collapse into fanny bags, size-adaptable tote bags and padded scarves, adhere to the multi-pocket structure and functional identity of Letasca as well.
The collection was presented in the Letasca showroom in Milan in January 2020 and subsequenty the brand featured in Italian dailys La Repubblica & Milano Finanza.
