EMBRACED BY STRIPES
As a timeless design we're seeing stripes continue from Fall21 into Resort22, in a bolder and bigger way than SS21. Just like the rainbow, stripes are bringing a much needed optimistic colour injection across wovens, jersey and knitwear. It's making a visual statement when worn top to toe. As the above image by Opening Ceremony Fall21 highlights. You can't help but see the stripe first and then the garment!
There's nothing subtle about the stripes we're seeing in the catwalk collections for Fall21 and Resort22. It's like a huge celebration with clashes of stripe combinations, spliced mixing, bias cut and playful chevron thrown into the mix.
Bright colours are often enhanced or grounded by black to make them pop and for Resort22 we're seeing the use of wide stripes in fresh and easy colour combinations. The seasonless stripe continues to be reimagined.
One of the key Fall21 collections where we love the use of stripe is by Philosophy di Lorenzo Serafini. The collegiate stripe direction and styling wholly represents the play on stripes, by the combinations of colour, mixing, splicing and blocking. The use of stripes is also a great update for the pleated skirt and we're loving the idea of bias stripes and 50/50 stripe combinations.
