Limited Edition: SS21
With restrictions loosening their hold on our social calendars, the prospect of being reunited with friends and family and resuming some of our leisurely pursuits call for considered pieces that put the joy back into getting dressed.
A continuation of the wardrobe building blocks introduced last season, our evolved, thoughtful classics grow in importance for spring-summer ‘21. Pared-back silhouettes in palette-cleansing neutrals have a grown-up sophistication and are cleverly cut to subtly enhance the wearers’ shape. Shades of oat, stone and off-white are infused with earth tones of olive, khaki and cool blue tones, allowing for a failsafe uniform to be styled with ease for ever-adapting routines.
Sportswear influences and prairie-style detailing bring a casual air to the fore and underpin a refined yet laid-back aesthetic. Diaphanous materials like satins and slinky crochet knits are toughened with heavy-duty canvas jackets and crisp cotton shirting, making the transition out of loungewear into a renewed uniform a prospect to relish.
Denim continues to be the foundation of post-lockdown dressing – and it’s not just for jeans. Appearing in many guises, an intricate patchwork co-ord and a streamlined shift dress layered with a slub linen blazer prove this fabrication’s appeal extends beyond casualwear; a combination that makes sense for those who aren’t ready to abandon easy elegance.
Abstract watercolour impressions strategically elevate everyday staples that even the print-averse can get on board with. While a painterly suggestion of an ice blue snow leopard across a summer midi dress is this season’s answer to 2020’s zebra print.
Whatever 2021 holds, it is likely that a renewed comfort matched with cautious optimism will continue to inform our style choices – whether they’re to be enjoyed at home, at work or beyond.
