The universe of Alabama Muse is progressively underground, influenced by music with a rock vibe. Intrigued by the pop icons, masters of contemporary film like David Lynch and Quentin Tarantino, it bursts into a rainbow of dazzling colors full of life. It’s rebellious and cheeky, free and unconventional, and always terribly independent.
The Alabama Muse FW 2021 collection of animal-friendly fur made in Italy by Alice Gentilucci explores the vitality of its DNA and surrenders to the charm of new shades and refined avant-garde materials that resemble the real fur of the animals after which they are named but are not because being sustainable simply means being cool.
Artisan sartorial techniques are used to produce iconic outerwear. Details and finishes are luxurious, and the intarsia and patchwork of different furs and contrasting colors become a manifesto of style. Curly Mongolian lamb debuts with its rainbow soul created with different colors — white, purple, gray, and red — and intarsia, and it is often mixed with different furs and colors. It bursts out in the style dedicated to the Grace Joneses of the new millennium, where the purple fur blends with yellow kidassia on the cuffs, and in the gray Mongolian lamb parka toned down with gold kidassia inserts.
The unconventional animal print appears on the long lynx coat and on the cheetah, which offers a new interpretation and adds a captivating touch to the coat with sweet sixteen collar. Black astrakhan is the star of the kimono coat, a genderless and seasonless must-have style. Black is also used in a patchwork motif (with mongolian lamb, kidassia, and goat) that explores vibrant volumes full of charm. Volumes follow and, in some cases, emphasize the silhouette, as in the striking white Mongolian lamb fur coat and stole that glamorously interpret the majesty of the British royal crown.
Coats and jackets with a rock party vibe are updated with intarsia and come in bold color combinations (like purple and yellow), while astrakhan and black Mongolian lamb capes are perfect for metropolitan parties. Jackets have wide lapels and a slim fit. The fur coat for the Kate Mosses of every latitude comes in bright red or flashy yellow, and there is also room for the long vest with wide seventies-style collar.
Starting this season, the wild heart of Alabama Muse is also expressed through accessories that complete the collection like an eccentric, stylish divertissement for urban Lolitas in search of fun and sophisticated rocker chicks. For them, there are collars big and small, eco-fur totes, and stoles used to break up looks. Gloves are made of cheetah and vinyl or astrakhan and eco-leather. There are sailor-style hats in cheetah and black astrakhan, while winter hats are oversized and are decorated with pompoms.
