Spring 2021 Fashion Trends: Sweatshirts, Knits, Day Dresses, and More

There have been complaints about the spring 2021 collections. People kvetch in group chats and Twitter threads that digital shows are not as good as the real thing—and that the real thing is not as good as it used to be. That’s one way to look at the current situation, but there’s a thrilling upside to this fragmented season: We are experiencing something actually new. In an industry that hews so passionately to tradition, heritage, and status quo, how exciting is it to feel that after seasons of talk, we are finally on the precipice of real, tangible change? That change will hopefully take many forms beyond a democratized digi-physical fashion week, but this season of shows has been a good start. 

The biggest shift in the garments that flashed across our screens is that, for the first time in a long time, these looked like clothes that are meant

Paris Fashion Week Wraps Sans International Retailers In Attendance. Will This Affect Their Offerings Come Spring?

The nine-day Paris Fashion Week physi-digital show experience for Spring 2021 wrapped last week, albeit in an altered manner. Live presentations accounted for roughly fifty percent of the brand’s collection reveals. The current Coronavirus pandemic kept all but local retailers away – and even some of those chose to sit it out and watch online.

With common sense dictating no travel rules for buyers abroad, they experienced the shows virtually. I asked four retail executives: Roopal Patel, Fashion Director, Saks Fifth Avenue, Laure Heriard Debreuil founder of The Webster, Lisa Aiken, Moda Operandi’s Buying and Fashion Director, and Libby Paige, Net-A-Porter’s Senior Fashion Market Editor, their take on the season in Paris and what their racks and webpages will be stocking this Spring.

NOTHING BEATS IN PERSON Unanimously all agreed that

Paris Fashion Week Spring Summer 2021: See The Best Looks

I’m sorry, did basic betch Emily from Emily In Paris show up to France and suck every inch of taste from the whole damn town? Maybe I’m being overdramatic, but I couldn’t help but feel like Paris Fashion Week Spring/Summer 2021 was lacking the magic it usually delivers. I oohed and ahhed very few times, and I ughed and ewed far more than expected.

Of course, prep time ahead of this Fashion Month was quite a bit different than it usually is, seeing as we were up against a global pandemic and all. Many designer ateliers closed down in accordance with safety guidelines, while others pivoted to making masks, developing hand sanitizers and aiding the fight against COVID-19 in any way they could. Still, they knew that in some way, shape or form, their SS21 collections needed to get done.

Extinction Rebellion Crashed Dior’s Spring 2021 Paris Fashion Show

Fashion is no stranger to gate-crashers, which makes it all the more unsurprising that Dior, helmed by creative director Maria Grazia Chiuri, saw an unexpected guest on the runway at its Dior Spring 2021 show in Paris today.

According to WWD, a spokesperson for the climate action group Extinction Rebellion claimed responsibility for the protest. The protester carried a bright yellow banner down the runway — stamped with Extinction Rebellion’s logo — that said “We are all fashion victims.” The woman was thought to be part of the show before many realized that she was indeed gate-crashing. 

The fashion house itself frequently uses protest messaging: Just last season, Chiuri featured neon signs that said “Patriarchy = CO2” as part of the show. LVMH’s (Dior’s parent company) head of communication and image, Antoine Arnault, initially told WWD, “I think it was part of the show. It’s so hard to
