Inspiration for APN73 AW21 stems from the Italian movies directed by Bernardo Bertolucci, one of the most iconic Italian talent and visionary man.

We selected references for frames from his movies and combined these with paintings of Francis Bacon, which were a powerful source of obsession and inspiration for the same Bertolucci” said creative director Andrea Pompilio, “The blend and contrast between these influential figures personalities represented the initial stage of the creative process for the new collection.”

A PERSONAL NOTE 73’s AW21 collection is presented through the lenses of fashion movie VIRTUAL-REALITY.TV which, set on Hangzhou, was partially shot in JNBY’s newly inaugurated headquarters designed by Italian architect Renzo Piano. “While realising the movie for Milan fashion week, we thought we wanted to translate this traditional inspiration in a very contemporary fashion film depicting real life transplanted in a virtual setting”.
