The seasonal stream will follow a warm-up launch on September 15, when the product line makes its debut on the Ellesse website under the #Behold tag before Larsson headlines the main event later this autumn.

In a statement, Ellesse wrote: “In celebration of Zara’s latest album, Poster Girl, the creative direction for the live shoppable gig will be combined with Zara’s vision against a backdrop of warping virtual terrains. All digital backdrops will complement each of her songs seamlessly to deliver a truly immersive digital experience for viewers.”

This will lead into the spring/summer of 2022, when Ellesse will return with a collection of lighter wear co-designed by Larsson herself.
