There are certain important dates in the fashion calendar. Even during a pandemic. Obviously, the spring and fall seasons are big business. Such are the haute couture shows. But the pre-fall constellations don’t always get the same respect. (Heck, the resort offerings are usually billed higher.) Now that the pre-fall 2021 collections are starting to decline, brands are obviously using the platform to make a statement.
From not-so-simple basics to dresses worthy of the red carpet, there is a lot to love. Brands pretty much stuck to their comfort zones. Chanel revamped its classic silhouettes and offered a lot of tweed. Salvatore Ferragamo made really good leather goods. And Etro gave us more of their unique boho aesthetic that never gets old.
Some lesser known labels have really improved their game. Staud played with patchwork patterns and stripes, not to mention cutouts. Petar Petrov gave a master class in draping. While Simon Miller was delivering loungewear, we still feel like we’re getting dressed.
