Fashion trends 2021: our forecasts for the spring / summer season

What a (fashion) year! While the shows for autumn / winter 2020/21 in February could still take place as usual, the month of September was overshadowed by the corona pandemic. Only a few presentations took place physically in front of an audience; most brands showed their new collections for spring / summer 2021 virtually, as live streams or fashion films. But that didn't mean that the designs were any less exciting. VOGUE gives an overview of the fashion trends for 2021.

1. Ultra-short mini skirts

What you need to know:
"The Miu-Miu-Show stood like a symbol for the carefree style of the‘ Euphoria ’generation," wrote US VOGUE immediately after the live broadcast. The show was bursting with youthful energy and optimism - largely thanks to model Lila Grace Moss (daughter of Kate Moss), who made her big runway debut. In a nutshell, the design vision of ultra-short mini skirts (alluding to the original "Youthquake" of the 1960s, a term coined in 1965 by Diana Vreeland, then editor-in-chief of US VOGUE).

What you need to know:
Wide, balloon-like skirts and sleeves were a recurring feature in the collections for spring / summer 2021. As Sarah Mower from VOGUE remarked, the expansive proportions of the dresses, blouses and coats, as seen at Loewe, for example, stand for women who have space take in the world ". Or to put it in the words of Loewe designer JW Anderson: They are "poetic armor" that give us the opportunity to "take refuge in clothing".

What you need to know:
While the voluminous silhouettes of previous seasons looked as if they were intended to serve as hiding places, the designs of the coming season have a different aura. Louis Vuitton's wide-cut paperbag trousers for spring / summer 2021, for example, represented the desire for an "in between" wardrobe, ie clothing that is neither perceived as specifically male nor female.

4. Theatrics

What you need to know:
While the pandemic year 2020 was dominated by comfortable loungewear, the collections for spring / summer 2021 promise a return of the (long-missing) theatrics to fashion. Maison Margiela and Loewe presented collections full of imaginative drama. Just think of the layers of tulle that lay over the designs by Loewe designer JW Anderson. "We were locked down when we created this vision," Anderson told VOGUE. “We had big problems getting fabrics, so we used what we had. My instruction to the team was: Let your imagination run wild! Every look should emphasize the craft in fashion. "

What you need to know:
"I once heard a quote from Martin Margiela about the value of the 'trace of time' in clothing when I was working for him. That touched me deeply," Demna Gvasalia told VOGUE over the phone from his home in Switzerland. In his new collection for Balenciaga, antique-looking silhouettes combined with details that were reminiscent of lingerie (fine lace, shiny silk, etc.) to create unmatched modern creations. A press release said: "93.5 percent of the materials in this collection are certified as either sustainable or upcycled." An approach that is inextricably linked to Gvasalia's own worldview. “When I think about the future, I don't see a Stanley Kubrick Space Age vision. My dreams are very down to earth. In ten years everything in fashion will be sustainable. And we will reuse the clothes we have. Time makes things more beautiful. "

What you need to know:
After a season of exposed bras and flashing underwear, Olivier Rousteing from Balmain brought another expression of eroticism to the catwalk for Spring / Summer 2021. According to VOGUE Runway, there is "a touch of sex in fashion" - this is reflected in the drapery and flowing lengths of fabric, which reminds us of a sheet that is quickly thrown on and that could slide down on us at any time.
