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 workwear jackets, relaxed cigarette trousers and quilted sweaters. Need a lift? Update your working from home wardrobe in animated basics or with a dash of eccentric detailing – adventurous prints, clashing colours and craft finishes build your mix-and-match look.
Bode is the label on everyone’s lips, beloved for its handcrafted finishes and appliqué details. This workwear jacket is adorned with miniature pom-poms and embroidery inspired by ‘30s vintage. Contrast it against a signature quilted sweater from Kapital and Dries Van Noten’s elegant, patterned tailoring – Dries doing what Dries does best.
Ami’s nonchalant take on luxury makes it easy to commit head-to-toe. This cotton overcoat allows the brand’s tailoring talents to shine. A hardworking piece that you’ll pull out of your wardrobe all year round – as easily paired with luxe activewear or formal silhouettes.
For SS21, Dries Van Noten developed pioneering colour filmmaker Len Lye’s kinetic artworks into psychedelic prints that run throughout the collection. Wear these drawstring shorts and summer shirt as a coord set for a high-octane take on summer streetwear.
Loewe’s turn-up jeans thoughtfully balance the brand’s off-beat personality and over-a-century long history as craftsmen of luxurious goods. The relaxed, slouchy fit makes them the perfect laid-back pairing for Albam’s fluid fits and Maison Kitsuné’s signature Fox Head t-shirt.
No SS21 wardrobe is complete without a chore jacket. Officine Générale’s striped cotton cover-up takes its lead from vintage French workwear. Like Barena’s beloved, casual tailored trousers, it’ll swiftly become indispensable – just add your favourite logo top.
