Fall 2021 couture marks our first mostly-physical Fashion Week in 16 months. Christian Dior, Armani Privé, Chanel, and Jean Paul Gaultier are staging shows in Paris, and we’re looking forward to two major debuts: Pieter Mulier’s first collection for Alaïa and Demna Gvasalia’s long-awaited collection for Balenciaga. Like the other “phygital” Fashion Weeks we’ve covered this year, though, there’s a mix of non-couture collections on the calendar, too; Virgil Abloh will kick off the week with an Off-White show. Acielle is going backstage at all the top shows to capture all the behind-the-scenes action; scroll through her latest coverage below, and come back for her daily updates.
The higher, the better.
