‘Forgotten Pacenotes’ is an homage to Turkey’s little-known rally culture of the 70s and 80s, as well as icons like Renç Koçibey, Serdar Bostanci, and Ali Sipahi. The women’s collection—which was also inspired by the ever-relevant aesthetic of Turkey’s rally heritage—also gave a nod to French pilot Michèle Mouton’s iconic style. Merging athleisure with the dynamism of motorsport-inspired cuts, this collection subverts classical racewear–giving it a new sense of proportion and function.
Narrating the cycle of a rally, from the driver’s mental preparation to the race itself, the collection is divided into two chapters: ‘’rally-style’’ and ‘’crash & repair’’. Style and performance are the collection's spiritual and functional pillars, which are translated into a rich range of tailored silhouettes, experimental textures, and bold patterns in earthy hues with eye-popping dashes of magenta.Vintage racing uniforms are reinterpreted with a sharp street twist, with track clothes mimicking rally aesthetics in their stark contrasts. Inspiring visions of heavily-modded cars emblazoned with bright sponsor logos, jaw-dropping wild landscapes and occasional wrecks-the Fall/Winter 2021 collection is a juxtaposition of raw and utilitarian codes.
