While most of 2020 was passing in an apocalyptic mood, the podiums also got their share. The couples of Noah's Ark in Thom Browne, with mannequins and visor-like headdresses at Commes Des Garçons, drew post-apocalyptic imaginations of the world, including the cancellation of some shows in Milan. Alongside the plaids, tassels, and block colors we've been accustomed to so far, a few more specific trends broke out this season: bright colors like fuchsia and red, ball gowns and daytime opera gloves.
New, Again, Re-Plaid
In 2020, the voltage of plaids is increasing. The squares that appear with larger patterns are more bold this season and increase their assertion when worn from head to toe. Mondrian-like patterns at Hermes, ginghams at Tibi, and top-to-bottom plaid looks at Burberry and Victoria Beckham welcome us.
Although not all heroes wear capes, we will all wear capes this season. From checkered models at Celine and Michael Kors to Isabel Marant's boho style ponchos, from Givenchy's dramatic cut red version to short elegant iterations at Valentino, capes have taken the wind behind the runways.
My Name Is Red
While the sexy meeting of red with drapes in Balenciaga is followed by sequined designs in Valentino and Bottega Venetta, Giambatista gains a romantic interpretation with flywheels at Valli and Alberta Feretti.
Many designers talk about sustainability and draw attention to climate change, while others feed the message they want to convey into their creative processes. With apocalyptic and end-of-the-world themes, we hope this revolutionary fall trend will push the industry to think about its own problems.
Like a Column
When you say Bodycon, if you think of the 2010s petticoat-like dresses, it's time to put your prejudices aside. In this period, bodycon column is adapted to dresses, and the definition of sex is redefined.
