Tracking all the standouts from this season’s top collections.
Milan is the city of elegance, where sumptuous materials and pristine tailoring are front and center. And for the spring 2021 season, the city’s designers showed ample amounts of both. See the five best looks from each collection.
We’re going to be candid, earth is a mess right now, so when Donatella Versace tells us her new collection “transports us underwater to Versacepolis,” where the rare beauty Medusa dwells, we’re ready to grab our passport and hit it. While so many collections took the pragmatic route this season to give the people the clothes they’re most likely to have an opportunity to wear right now, Versace went all in on the fantasy—a melding of mermaids, Miami, and mythology.
There’s suiting with oversized jackets layered over bikini tops and mini skirts, neon mini dresses in coral reef-inspired prints, color-blocked pastel short suits, and glimmering bra tops paired with easy sarong skirts. “I wanted to create something disruptive…,” Versace says, “To me that meant dreaming of a new world. A world made of popping colors and fantastic creatures and a world in which we can all coexist peacefully. This collection has an upbeat soul and is optimistic, dreamy, positive… These are clothes that bring you joy.” -Kerry Pieri
