This month’s New York Fashion Week was primarily a virtual affair, with designers opting to release their collections via video or photo slideshows, but there was no shortage of buzz around the brands that did show.
The look is a sign of our sartorial times: In this pandemic, when we’re at home dreaming of more stylish days, trends are yours to take and make your own. Whether your fashion fantasy involves cocooning yourself in head-to-toe knits or sporting stilettos and a decadent dress, designers offered everything from the practical to the truly fantastical.
Here, six trends we’re eager to embrace post-pandemic.
Because who couldn’t use more? Designers served up electrifying collections packed with playful pieces that you couldn’t have a bad day in. Collina Strada brought double the fun via layers and psychedelic prints, while Studio 189 showed multicolored skirts with flouncy tiers that suggest twirling (at home, on your own, why not?). And in a runway video, during which the models all smiled brightly, Zimmermann’s pastel patchwork finale gown swept the show.
