Positive outlook, Instagram friendly trends
In 2021, according to the fashion shows, elegance will go hand in hand with comfort and women no longer necessarily need to sacrifice the latter for the former. According to fashion critics at Vogue.com, over the past one year, fashion houses have doubted fundamental issues. For instance, how has this period spent at home has affected our desires and how much fashion really matters in an isolated situation?
Next season’s ready-to-wear collections include spectacular colours and patterns, and the so-called „sculptural pieces” became more “Instagram friendly” and wearable. Patchwork and collage styles are about to become a trend, while glittering cabaret pieces won’t go out of style either. Tom Ford will be keeping overalls with a catwoman effect. Meanwhile Phillip Lim and Arthur Arbesser have already designed office sets in case life returns to normal and the home office period, which has been here with us for a year, comes to an end.
The reminiscent pop diva style from the early 2000s sets the trend for the logo craze. According to Alberta Ferreti and Missoni, the poncho and cape mania will make a huge comeback, while Miu Miu and Thom Browne would rather bring puffer jackets and ski sweaters back in fashion.
Pieces to match the upcoming season’s defining trends can also be found in the selection at the Budapest Select Concept Store. You can never go wrong with THEFOUR’s uniquely patterned jacket and the super fashionable, sequin dress from MERO. The overlapping overall of Orovica is made in the spirit of comfort and elegance, while Virág Kerényi’s snake-patterned faux leather trousers are definitely for the braver fashionistas. The cobalt blue wool coat of Alma Vetlényi made with a zero-waste tailoring process is also an absolute winner for the second half of the year.
