Last season, designers scrambled to figure out how to unveil their collections. But now many seem comfortable telling their stories in new ways. Two brilliant examples from the most recent Fashion Month: Saul Nash’s video with a surprising twist, and a gorgeous film by Roksanda that proves all you need is a few famous friends and three iPhones to get the message across beautifully. One thing is certain: creativity lives on in this new, mostly digital, reality.
Here, FASHION editors round up the dreamiest looks from the Fall/Winter 2021 collections from New York, London, Paris, Milan and beyond.
Miu Miu’s Fall 21 formula is a simple one: skiwear over silk, plus a pair of sturdy boots for trudging through deep snow. But the actual look is anything but dull. The quilted outerwear comes in pretty pastels and there are knitted hat masks in bold stripes or ’70s floral crochet, a motif that also shows up on the boudoir-bound camis and slip dresses. The piled-on styling might be a bit much for many, but there are lots of fun pieces here we’d love to see on Canadian slopes and sidewalks. —Bernadette Morra, editor-in-chief
Move over Birkin. There’s a new Hermès must-have in town. And her name is Hermèsway. This clever little crossbody was easy to miss given it was clutched in the models’ hands as they strutted in their fringed suedes and dotted day dresses. Designed to keep essentials close at hand, the Hermèsway has a phone pocket, compartment for a lipstick or balm (Hermès, bien sur), front pockets that can fit two credit cards and a spot for an AirPods case (classic and Pro) with closure flap. Get on the waitlist now. —B.M.
