As much as I love to review entire collections, what’s even better is to pick out a few highlights and talk about them in detail. Yup, my favorite part of the fashion weeks is to talk about some looks from random collections. Perhaps because it’s easier to pick a few favorites, than to find full collections that are entertaining and engaging. Here’s part 1 of the highlights from the fashion weeks February 2021!
Highlights February 2021
I wrote about La DoubleJ in this article. I love their mix of historic prints, dramatic silhouettes and clever styling. La DoubleJ Fall 2021 have all these ingredients, with a vibrant fall touch to it. One of my favorite looks is this green maxi dress. The A-silhouette, with the high neckline and mirroring sleeves are creating a 70s vibe. The dark green color in combination with the orange pattern is a gem. Love how the neckline also is framed with the pattern. What makes this outfit even better are the matching earrings and shoes. It creates a nice coherency. I must say though that the pom pom headband is what has my heart. Such a playful way of adding a more aristocratic vibe to the outfit. It gives it a twist.
Ports 1961 made knitwear wearable and fashionable again. Or maybe again is the wrong word, but the Canadian label presented a lot of wearable and innovative knitwear. I have a big crush on this knitted cardigan and skirt duo. Love the styling with the black boots and matching turtleneck. I would’ve personally skipped the gold necklace and the mint blue bag, but hey it still works. The black/white combination adds a timelessness to the look, whilst the cuts of the knitted cardigan balances the flow of the skirt. Another knitted favorite from the collection is this one.
One label that has refined the art of retro elegance is Emilia Wickstead. Season after season, year after year, she plays with timeless colors, silhouettes and details. This sophisticated elegance is embodied in this dove blue monochromatic look. There are several things that are contributing to this luxe vibe, one of them is definitely the retro blue hue. The cape and the midi length of the coat are also adding, as well as the choice of ballerina shoes and going sans details. It could’ve been an Audrey Hepburn outfit from the 60s! I must say though; an orange bag to this outfit would’ve made it pop even more, but I also understand keeping it clean and minimalist.
