Amidst the pandemic, designers showed resilience by showcasing their latest collections through a combination of virtual and physical shows. As expected, the runway was full of inspiration as we saw trends that ranged from classic monochrome and bold pops of color, to detailed sequins and luxury leatherwear. Here are some of the best looks from Fashion Week: Fall/Winter 2021.
1. Burberry’s Sophisticated Pinks and Greens
Burberry’s show was a breathtaking experience as it showcased oversized trench coats, luxurious leather ponchos, and other classic staples. However, what stood out was Burberry’s sophisticated use of pinks and greens in its colour scheme. The soft, blush-pink jackets were paired with complimentary green trousers, while the green and black fur-trimmed coat was a statement piece that captured everyone’s attention
2. Prada’s Futuristic Fashion
Known for her unconventional runway presentations, this time around, designer Miuccia Prada’s show epitomized futurism with her nod to the Matrix movie franchise. The runway was full of sci-fi inspired looks, with models dressed in leather and nylon jackets, and statement boots with chunky soles. We also got to see a mix of bold, bright colors, such as lime green, which added a touch of modernity to the collection.
3. Michael Kors’ Mixed Prints
Designer Michael Kors’ Fall/Winter collection was full of experimental and eclectic style. We saw the use of mixed prints as butterfly patterns were paired with leopard print trench coats, and snake print pullovers mixed with check pants. The collection still had Michael Kors’ signature sophisticated look, but this time, he added a playful element with the use of bold prints.
4. Christian Siriano’s Sequins, Satin and Sparkles
Christian Siriano’s show was nothing short of glamourous. The collection was full of sequined embellishments, satin dresses, and sparkly, feathered finishes. He stayed true to the brand’s core values, which are inclusivity and diversity. The runway was full of models of various sizes and body types, all dressed in showstopping gowns that shone as they walked down the runway
5. Balmain’s Classic Monochrome
Designer Olivier Rousteing’s Fall/Winter lineup for Balmain showcased the brand’s classic monochrome look. He used a combination of black and white to create striking monochrome jackets, trousers, and skirts. The collection also featured strong tailored looks and intricate embellishments, making every piece stand out.
