The overarching theme of the spring collections was function. Yes, there were impractical trends aplenty. It wouldn’t be fashion week without some fashion with a capital F. Including, blazing prints, mood-alternating hues, and disco-ready pieces that sparkled and shone down the catwalk.
We’re looking at you Isabel Marant, Paco Rabanne, Balenciaga, and Burberry.
But, the majority of the pieces shown at fashion month reflected the fresh demands and comfy desires of customers.
Wearable, comfortable, uncomplicated pieces dominated. But just because something is comfortable doesn’t mean it can’t be chic as the slouchy, low-slung trousers teamed with t-shirts and trenches at Louis Vuitton demonstrated. Same with the oversized blazers and khakis at The Row and the luxe sweatshirts at Balenciaga.
So when it comes to pieces to invest in for spring for your own wardrobe, it’s all about items that tick the practical, stylish, and let’s face it, loose boxes. Pieces that look just as good lounging on the couch, Zooming, or for socially distanced meet-ups. When we are allowed, of course.
And that’s what my edit is all about – those classic, seasonless foundations for your spring wardrobe – pieces that can be mixed and matched, slotted into your own wardrobe right now and stay there for years to come.
