The last year has been one of reflection, and for the fall-winter 2021 season, designers spoke to our quarantined times in what we hope will be the final fashion month at home. There were lingering notes of indoor life with cozy knitwear trends, but also an acknowledgment that we're at the precipice of the world reopening with a spectrum of optimistic dressing. Chanel and Miu Miu declared the slopes as your next wintry vacation. If you've forgotten how to dress, Marni, Prabal Gurung, and newcomer Osman are suggesting playing dress up in saccharine princess gowns, but for the bold, Laquan Smith and Tom Ford are not-so-subtly suggesting that the catsuit is the sultry silhouette of the season.
