Spring Summer 2021

Santaniello Spring Summer 2021 is an evolving reflection on the new ways of dressing.
“Fashion is a wave that must be ridden even when it seems unpredictable. You must go along with it, adapting to what’s new and interpreting it your own way”.

These are the words of Antonio Santaniello, creative director of the brand which has always looked to nature – in particular the sea – for inspiration.

“What matters today is evoking emotion and overcoming distances so we can feel close to each other again.” The collection emulates the contradictions of this exceptional moment, with the campaign set in a city bursting with contradictions – Naples. Here, opposites attract. Refined palaces are hidden within crumbling neighborhoods. Narrow, intimate streets suddenly open up to reveal a spectacular sea view. Naples is made up of water and fire, light and dark, colors and contrasts.

Santaniello once again intertwines the places with the garments, the past with the present. As Antonio recalls “The past is a film to be rewound, with scenes that still resonate, even if they require restoration”.

Sustainability has always been intrinsic to the Santaniello brand. Quality comes before quantity: fewer garments but more refined, durable and consistent. Sewn into each of them is the craftsmanship and knowledge that comes from generations studying design and adapting to trends.

2021 demands reconciling two opposites: comfort and elegance. Returning to an elegant way of dressing is a response to a moment of crisis that goes hand in hand with the need for comfort. For this, we have crafted airier trousers – such as the Clark model – and the comfortable Zagara overshirt as an alternative to a suit jacket.


The colours reflect nature: blues and greens, earthy tones and gray scales.White serves as a contrast to the natural tones.

As always, the carefully-selected fabrics are high quality, innovative, and sustainable. Stalwarts of any Spring Summer collection, cotton and linen are combined in blends that enhance their benefits and create surprising results, such as the denim effect. The Lycra® comfort stretch of the ‘Il Viaggiatore’ line is back. Designed to be machine washed without the need for ironing, it’s perfect for travelers, just as they start exploring once again.

Naples is the emblem of our sartorial tradition. Home to one of the oldest and most important harbours in history, it is a place where new adventures begin. A symbol of the dynamic Italian way of doing things – one that is relentless and constantly looks for new stimuli to evolve.
