Isabel Marant

You don't need to be a soothsayer to predict fashion trends in a difficult period of an epidemic: crisis breeds hope, hope breeds escape from reality, and escapism almost always brings us to futurism. This is the word Isabel Marant used to describe her second women's collection, created during the pandemic. In it, the designer showed how she sees the fashion of the future.

In an interview after a fashion show at Paris Fashion Week, she noted that moments like these give more time for designers to try new ways to showcase clothes and express different styles. “Fabrics from the 1980s in 2030,” Marant said about the collection. In her view, the trends that will be relevant in the next decade originate in the last century, gradually acquiring unusual meanings and transforming into something completely unique. In this collection, the designer combined the folk style and libertarian spirit of the 1960s, whose symbols were Jimi Hendrix and Janis Joplin, as well as elements of gabber culture, a musical direction of the 1990s that combines techno and electronic motives.

The Fall/Winter 2021 collection includes sheer lace dresses, wide leg pants, cropped jackets with embroidery, leather jumpsuits, denim shirts, coats, high-waisted shorts, bomber jackets and vinyl trench coats. Fall/Winter 2021 looks are focused to remind the history of human craftsmanship and cultural heritage. The collection is based on the contrast between natural materials and exquisite details, emphasizing the fact that masculinity and femininity can not only oppose, but also exist harmoniously with each other.
