Since the middle of the fifteenth century (1550-1750), the "Italian impromptu comedy" (Commedia dell'arte) troupe was born in the Italian Renaissance era and has been popular in Europe for nearly two centuries. The original artistic comedies were mostly performed outdoors. You could often see simple and temporary stages set up in the streets and near the markets in Italy. Since there are no complicated stage setting, the actors need to rely on their own body movements and a variety of stage props. These humble street performers walked the streets and alleys, and after performing in one place, they loads the entire stage into a carriage and move on to the next destination. Simple stories, complicated characters, loose structures, and more performance space constitute the main characteristics of Italian impromptu comedy. In the interpretation of Uma Wang FW21, you could see its influence everywhere. The model's pale face and crimson lips, the playful ingenuity on the silhouette of the ready-to-wear, full of dramatic tension.
In the 17th century, the Netherlands, which had just emerged from Spanish colonial rule, was in a golden age of rapid economic development. Social, cultural and artistic development is also unprecedentedly prosperous. Dutch painter Rembrandt Harmenszoon Van Rijin were particularly good at surpassing the external image of the displayed things, and has a deep insight into the spiritual temperament on the subject matter, using light and shadow, and his favorite black, white, red, orange, yellow, and brown colours to define one religion after another, and numerous other emotional moments that happened in the Netherlands at the time. If you are interested in photography, you may have heard of the term "Rembrandt". The fabrics and the colours of the new season's clothing are also very reminiscence of the Rembrandt style, fuzzy and soft with bright and dark silhouette.
