Even during such an unprecedented time, designers have unveiled seriously bold and compelling designs for Spring/ Summer 2021 Fashion Week. From pandemic-inspired collections to themes of individuality and gender, we have rounded up this season’s top fashion trends!
The pandemic has clearly seeped its way into the designers’ fashion process as we see the large-scale netting becoming one of the ultimate spring layering pieces for Spring/Summer. This season is all about home and relaxation; where designers experiment with macrame and slouchy open-work net patterns for added textures and extra breathability. Burberry took it to the next level by adding stunning crystal embellishments to their netted outwear as bold statement pieces, truly captivating our hearts.
Power shoulders are back this season, and they are here to stay. Spotted everywhere on the runways, these iconic shoulders presented themselves in many exciting variations. From puff-sleeved tops to strong-shouldered power suits, these iconic shoulders are a symbol of strength and empowerment. For example, take inspirations from Balmain’s innovative collection: it features powerful silhouettes with sharp, dramatic shoulders that are unforgettable and iconic. So enter the year 2021 with a brand new sense of confidence. Go big, or go home!
One of the memorable trends from Milan and Paris Fashion Week would be the see-through trend. At Fendi, soft sheer fabrics were juxtaposed with woven knits and embellished with artful embroideries to convey themes of family and nostalgia. This season, you can try wearing a sheer organza blouse over a simple cami top for a minimal, delicate look.
Who says self-isolation has to be sad and gloomy? Look on the bright side! Designers like Riccardo Tisci, Miuccia Prada, Raf Simons, and Silvia Fendi have embraced plenty of bold and bright colours for their S/S 2021 Collection. Especially for Miu Miu, the collection was overflowed with playful candy colours like bubblegum pink, electric blue, and scarlet red. So take your outfits to the next level by mixing fun pops of colours to it!
Shiny metallics have made quite notable appearances on several catwalks this season. From the gorgeous shimmery jackets and glitter tops at Isabel Marant to Louis Vuitton’s iridescent metallic suit, and the gold embellished dress at Cynthia Rowley, designers are bringing the opulence of the 80’s into the outfits. So get ready to stand out from the crowd and celebrate the most exciting post-pandemic party!
