Escapism Mode

Beach prints, crochet bags and seashell embellishment were all seen on the catwalks for S/S 21. Look out for platform espadrilles, effortless shapes creating a fluid feel, and vibrant patterns. Natural materials and handcrafted details add the finishing touches to this trend and bring us back to nature. Embrace the joyful aesthetic with vibrant floral bursts!

Cut-out Details

This is a return to style reminiscent of the 1990s, complete with clean minimalism and unisex designs. Slinky silhouettes and cut-outs, especially in dresses, were featured on the catwalks. Designers such as Victoria Beckham and Nanushka have created dresses with cut out necklines and open back details.

Romantic dresses

Although occasion-wear was not at the forefront for 2020, it is reimagined for S/S 21; The more fantastical the better, with the catwalks dominated by embellishments, tulle and eye-catching prints. Additions of lace and ruffles update the basic summer dress. The exaggerated sleeve is here to stay, featuring on everything from dresses to blouses and even coats! The bigger and bolder the better this season.

Classics with a Twist

Versatile basics and classic shapes were at the heart of the catwalk, with a nod to the creation of a concise capsule wardrobe. Tailored trousers, shirt dresses and blouses are all reinvented, creating practical, wearable pieces (whether you are working from home or in the office).  Exaggerated shoulders and pleated details are just two of the standout features.
