The six trends we will wear this fall / winter season according to Brown Thomas
Fall / Winter 2021 presents a diverse and fun upbeat season with designers once again celebrating the beginning of the return to normalcy.
Stunning party outfits appear as a major focus, color is in abundance with outerwear making an eye-catching statement with faux fur coats and bouffant styles. Couture once again dominates this season and takes on a laid back ease as we once again gravitate towards normality while also nodding to the ’80s with strong shoulders and decadent fabrics.
In this AW21, Brown Thomas Cork is delighted to present nine new labels including Anine Bing, Magali Pascal, Viktoria & Woods, CeliaB and Free People with The Shoe Rooms welcoming JW Anderson, Chloé, Off-White and Magda Butrym.
Hyper vivid colors add an injection of playful energy and optimism for the AW21. A bold approach to color is a key consideration this season with yellows and purples incorporated into many designer collections.
The emphasis on luxury comfort and weatherproof functionality brings novelty to jackets and outerwear as designers prepare for a season of outdoor adventures and winter getaways. Casual dress codes and the now appetite for high tops see the emergence of the bomber jacket as the key to this season.
The designers are marking the emergence of a post-containment reality with “dressing again” a key goal for this season. As seen here with Victoria Beckham, the designer’s graceful, everyday long sleeve dresses have been cropped up for flowing ease.
The designers are celebrating the return to normality for the AW21 by showcasing exquisite party wear that exudes glamor and updating the occasion outfits for smaller, more casual intimate gatherings. Metallic hues, exquisite florals, mini dresses and knits paired with ultra-feminine pencil skirts are all on the menu for this trend.
Voluminous shapes in forgiving fabrics resonated from the 1980s and on the AW21 catwalks. As shown here by Dolce & Gabbana, strong shoulders and bright colors bring this era to life for the AW21.
Fall / winter is never complete without on-trend coats with designers upping their outerwear basics with shearling and faux fur for this season.
