A few months ago, we told you about DET BLEV SENT's Spring/Summer 2024 collection, Sleepless, in this article. Today, after having closely followed this brand that continues to consolidate its personal identity in the current fashion scene, it’s time to present its newly launched Fall/Winter 2024 collection. Titled New Colors, their latest release draws inspiration from the provocative art and style of Robert Mapplethorpe. The iconic American photographer whose black-and-white images were seen around the world is the starting point of a collection very connected to the rebellious spirit of the 1960s and 1970s in New York City.
Masterfully combining fluid tailoring with punk-inspired elements, showcasing a juxtaposition of luxury and rebellion, the new DET BLEV SENT collection demonstrates once again the contemporary vision connected to art that the brand has been committed to since its origins. A vision to which they now add new codes resulting from having immersed themselves in the work of photographer Robert Mapplethorpe, whose artwork is transferred to the garments that make up New Colors through a monochromatic palette of black and white that dominates the collection.
Putting the spotlight on the artistic partnership between Mapplethorpe and Patti Smith, DET BLEV SENT celebrates strength and vulnerability in the form of very balanced female silhouettes, accented with shades of grey and brown reflecting the urban landscape of the era. The fashion brand continues to give much importance to the quality of its garments, including in this collection materials such as Italian baby mohair and vegetable-tanned grained lambskin, which take centre stage, adding opulence while maintaining an air of innocence. It is precisely this convergence of two worlds—the equilibrium achieved between different universes—that makes DET BLEV SENT a unique project.
The pieces that make up the new collection show a rebellious and sophisticated spirit. Designed for those who are sure of who they are, and who are not afraid to express how they feel, the versatile garments cater to the metropolitan wardrobe. We can't stop talking about the standout black Italian baby mohair coat inspired by Mapplethorpe's self-portrait. If you want to learn more about their new collection, click here
