Saben’s A/W 2021 ‘Heritage’ Collection Captures Femininity & Sophistication with a Nostalgic Twist

Inspired by heritage traditions, Saben’s Autumn/Winter 2021 collection brings together feminity and sophistication with a nostalgic twist. 

First dreamt up in lockdown, Saben’s latest collection brings a refined touch to the everyday wardrobe essentials.

The gorgeous autumnal palette of navy, tan and highland green is emboldened with accents of striking ‘scarlet’ red and ‘ballerina’, a soft pink hue for a more playful touch.

Inspired by the notion of heritage, designer Roanna Jacobson has introduced nostalgic details from the Saben archive with a feminine and modern twist.

The Blaise crossbody is the perfect work-to-weekend accessory, while the Odette handbag boasts practical luxury with a stunning gold chain handle.

Inspired by Saben’s archival Dash silhouette, the Lulu is designed for elegance and intuitive function, worn other the shoulder or as a crossbody. Saben’s A/W 2021 collection also introduces a covetable brown croc texture, seen here in the Ziggy wallet.

Watch: Prada Fall/Winter 2021 Women’s Collection

It’s been all eyes on the Prada Cup of late but fashion fans rejoice, there wasn’t a sail in sight at Prada’s Milan Fashion Week presentation, which streamed live at 2am NZT on Friday, 26 February.

The second womenswear collection since fashion tour de force Raf Simons joined Miuccia Prada at the brand’s helm last year, the collection picked up where Prada’s SS20/21 left off, taking inspiration from the ever-changing relationship between technology and humanity, and its evolution from being a sometimes-source of disconnection in our lives, to the thing that has brought us all together throughout the past year, allowing us to communicate and simulate a kind of closeness, despite being physically distanced from one another.
