The physical events at London Fashion Week were scaled down and the usual crowds were missing. But this created a strong focus on a group of key influencers and also allowed for a closer scrutiny of each style. It was a unique opportunity, at a time when fashion events are few and far between, for self expression.
Events bring home the realisation that we are vulnerable and dependent on our health, the environment and each other. This is the mindset moving into AW21-22 and a good starting point for meaningful and authentic discussion.

This reactive report explores the fashion trends we set out for SS21 in the light of this current world crisis. The three trends cover Women, Men and Youth sectors for apparel and accessories. In a new move, we’ve combined the youth section for each trend into a genderless melting pot of ideas.
Unique styling is one of the biggest inspirations this season, and looks that stand out most are those with an individual edge. Sometimes it’s as simple as an unexpected print or colour but it’s the maximal looks that are the most directional. In addition to these maximal looks are bold statement pieces with exaggerated proportions or those with misplaced details, unexpected openings or additional panels. Suits are softened with full wide-leg trousers, a jogger-style cuffed pant or a pair of shorts. Full sportswear looks are out, but some individual pieces added to more formal outfits add an authentic vibe. Leather and leather-look fabrics have exploded onto the scene, not just for biker jackets, but reptile-pattern coats, trousers, skirts, shorts and even softly structured suits.
This gender mix reveals how streetstyle fashion is breaking down barriers with more inclusive ways to style accessories. Over 620 images capture the direction of street trends for autumn/winter 2020. A combination of bold statement pieces, full of personality and more nuanced styles with a softer impact. Personalised styling is key, for example, eyewear with chunky chains or jewellery/watches worn over cuffs or gloves.
As we move into 2021 the CONCEPTS that we set out in AW20 have become clearer – and the call for sustainability becomes more urgent. Each of the three themes approaches this future space from a different angle: Source encourages an exploration into ways to minimise the environmental impact of production, Reset looks at technology and how advances are shaping product design, Voice considers ways designers can connect with social, environmental and political issues – fearlessly.
