The Mood: Summer ‘21 Menswear
With uncertainty in the air, designers get creative – an optimistic, come-back feel elevates our summer menswear editRead more
The SS21 collections proved that pastels for spring are innovative once more. Brands leant on ‘50s silhouettes and classic American sportswear shapes - think luxe fabrics and marshmallow hues tucked into wide-leg nautical trousers. Our tip? Go head-to-toe.
Build a core wardrobe of neutral pieces that are a pleasure to wear. Shirts take on an activewear slant with zip detailing and sports collars. Fabrics are thoughtfully sourced with luxurious finishes that are gentle on the skin – clothes for a new cosy kind of formality.
The new season brings kaleidoscopic colour palettes and optimistic print experimentations. For SS21, Dries Van Noten developed pioneering colour filmmaker Len Lye’s kinetic artworks into psychedelic fabrics – saturate your look and layer these attention-grabbing separates.
From default wear of high-energy adventurers to stay-at-home staple, activewear goes full circle. Brands push the classic crew-neck sweater and tracksuit trouser to their elevated conclusion – sportswear you won’t want to break a sweat in.
