As the virtual format continues to be the name of the game, the New York Fashion Week Fall/Winter calendar adhered to a mostly digital schedule, with a few in-person shows. Designers have now found a comfort zone in this solution.
Contrasting the comfort/leisure memo from Spring/Summer, trends for Fall/Winter included chic tailored silhouettes with amplified details. In the department of colour palette, the designers were in harmony with the Pantone predictions. After a year of above-the-torso dressing, people are excited to rejoin the workforce (partially) step out of the house and wear clothes that aren’t stained sweats. Fashion houses offered them just that, it was interesting to see the return of workwear-chic. Besides the seasonal big names like Prabal Gurung, Jonathan Simkhai and Jason Wu, NYFW 2021 saw an array of fresh new talent in labels like Studio Amelia, Pizza Slime and Epimonia.
Here’s our edit of the top 10 trends we bookmarked from the NYFW Fall/Winter 2021 presentation.
