All-embracing SS21 collections reflect on an unpredictable world
Layering layering layering – the key to spring’s adaptable wardrobe. A season like no other, the Spring, Summer 2021 shows gave us a charismatic take on comfort with palazzo trousers, fluid maxi-dresses and sportswear finishes. Need a lift? Update your working from home wardrobe in elevated staples or with a spot of decadence - fearless colour combinations, Victoriana detailing and architectural silhouettes build your mix-and-match look.
Ganni’s blown-up silhouettes continue to court attention. This lamb leather mini-dress is the perfect rock-and-roll counterpart to spring’s whimsical blouses. Collars are only getting bigger – Shrimps’ Amelia blouse is updated in Alpine Fields print which take its lead from the von Trapp family in The Sound of Music.
Exclusive to Liberty, MOZH MOZH’s thoughtful production safeguards artisan techniques in founder Mozhdeh Matin’s native Peru. The lively brand’s summery cuts mean you don’t have to miss knitwear textures in spring – Loewe’s cat-eye sunglasses are the finishing touch.
The Scandinavian authority on It-pieces, Acne Studios drops this season’s icon. This sheer tulle dress is christened by the brand’s new season emblem, embroidered amongst decadent baroque-style detailing. An oversized bow adds to the frivolity – clash against winter’s motorcycle boots.
The Canadian tuxedo done the SS21 way, double-denim is always a springtime favourite. Contrast hues in Totême’s washed blue army jacket with Ami’s deep indigo jeans – with iconic heart-with-eyes logo, Comme des Garçons PLAY’s classic t-shirt completes the look.
With contemporary classic status, Issey Miyake’s PLEATS PLEASE flaunts the same radical pleating techniques the designer has been renowned for since the ‘80s. We love the juicy tangerine hue of this cocooning midi-dress against Issey Miyake’s BAO BAO sculptural accessories.
