Three Emerging Designer Fashion Trends for Spring 2021
Despite the hectic designer fashion calendar already sprouting Fall 2021 collections left, right and center, some spring trends are only rolling in now. Fashion weeks that took place all over the world in February surprised many with a sudden introduction of the latest looks for this spring - a rather short notice in comparison to the “traditional” fashion calendar, appealing to a more consumer-friendly model. In this blog post we will introduce top three Spring 2021 trends we have spotted on the runways.
After three springs in a row dominated by bright and bold prints, the world for designer fashion is finally turning its attention to smaller shapes and restricted color palettes. We’ve known that monochrome will be a thing in 2021 before the year has started which was difficult to believe – this trend, on the other hand, is a nice transition between the two.
It also allows brands to show off their creativity in new capacities. For example, Adam Selman Sport chose to feature a repetitive pattern of dumbbells in a geometric formation. The designer brand has taken a similar approach with floral designs and animal print. Rebecca Minkoff took a similar approach, intricating the infamous floral and animal prints. However, Minkoff still kept large-form florals, mixing them with the smaller counterparts for a more creative look.
The colour of spring 2021 is, undeniably, orange. Having a neon shade of it featured few seasons back, we can expect to see more variations of orange across designer fashion and high street collections. Bright, muted, dominating or added to patterns, orange will be taking the scene this spring.
Rejina Pyo and Anne Klein were the most notorious users of orange, incorporating it to the entirety of their collection as a vibrant touch. Other designers would use the colour more sparingly but its presence would still be notable. For example, Rachel Comey had it in a floral print alongside pink and blue tones. It even had a very sneaky tone of orange in the knitwear.
Moving towards more classical and sophisticated trend, we can expect a rise of white tailoring. Designer fashion has been banking on “borrowed from the boys” approach when creating smart casual womenswear for many years now and tailoring is the most popular way of doing so. White button-up shirts are a timeless staple of every wardrobe and that can easily be dressed up and down due to how versatile white is. This is why designers decided to marry the two: tailoring and white.
Anne Klein took the approach of creating an entire white tailored suit – the collection showcased blazers, collared shirts and fitted trousers. Another designer, Rejina Pyo, went for linen looks that would include tailored elements on various pieces of the collection. Similar idea is seen in Rebecca’s Minkoff shirt – it has tailored angles, combined with ruffle detailing.
