Self-Portrait has unveiled its Autumn-Winter 2021 Collection through a series of images and film featuring British actress Phoebe Dynevor.
Captured in Self-Portrait’s hometown of London, the images were shot by British photographer Nigel Shafran encapsulating the mood of the moment and presenting a snapshot of a day at home with Phoebe, finding joy in simplicity and solitude.
Connected by their British roots and effortless independence, Self-Portrait and Phoebe unite to celebrate the brand’s key looks for Autumn Winter 2021 season.
Han Chong, Self-Portrait Founder and Creative Director, said:
“As I was designing this latest collection, I was thinking a lot about the British sensibility and that effortless approach to British style, which I am so often inspired by. I felt we needed to work with someone to bring this to life rather than present the collection in a traditional show format, and having captured the hearts and imaginations of so many people over the last few months, I knew Phoebe would be the perfect woman. The moment I met her, I loved how down-to-earth she was whilst still having this incredible spirit and energy that perfectly emulates the attitude and values of the Self-Portrait brand. She is warm, independent, sensitive, expressive and completely captivating. It’s been a real joy getting to know and work with Phoebe and I’m incredibly excited to have her on this journey with us.”
Phoebe Dynevor said:
“I was delighted and honoured that Han chose me to work with him and such a talented team on his latest collection. I first spotted one of his dresses on a photoshoot and it was an instant love affair. Han’s collections for Self-Portrait have always been an inspiration, I love the strong structures he creates from such delicate and stunning fabrics and this collection is a testament to his incredible work. I’m so proud to be a part of this new project and hope to have a chance to wear the pieces when life goes back to normal again!”
The launch of the images coincides with the introduction of Self-Portrait’s Autumn Winter 2021 Collection which includes new relaxed styles for day and night, as well as the reworking of the fashion brand’s existing staples. The season sees the evolution of the Self Portrait wardrobe, adapting to the changing needs of the modern woman with a focus on elegant simplicity. Fabrics and constructions are pared back and lightweight, creating a sense of freedom and ease, and are all designed to be mood enhancing.
The full Autumn Winter 2021 collection will be available online at self-portrait-studio.com, in Self-Portrait stores globally and through an international network of select retailers from July 2021.
Established in 2013 by Han Chong, Self-Portrait has become synonymous with empowering the modern woman through functional dressing for day and night. The brand is also strongly committed to supporting creative British talent through a number of initiatives including a scholarship program with Central Saint Martins.
