I feel rather disconnected from Fashion Month this season but this image caught my attention.
It’s last Thursday’s Christian Siriano SS21 show and the colours, plus olde worlde Slim Aaron’s-esque glamour (tempered with the now-normal sight of a Covid mask), place it firmly in the space of aspirational longing. Longing for parties, whimsy and unbridled joy instead of caution and pragmatism.
My overarching goal for following the SS21 shows is to understand what ‘fashion’ is going to look like for all of us for the next few years. This season’s shows will set the tone for that. For the first time in my lifetime, I think we could have a Dior’s New Look moment.
What do you think will be the 21st century New Look and who is going to create it?
