What to wear after lockdown?

Are you starting to think about returning to outside world? What is in and what is no longer in your life? Have the priorities changed?

It is very acceptable if many things have changed for you. Nevertheless we are here for you whatever changes you are facing.

We are looking at the Vogue trends for Spring/Summer 2021 to see how to best wear it.



Monochrome Magic

In a world with no simple answers or even straightforward questions, designers showed a predilection for black and white – most often, together. At Dolce & Gabbana, chequerboard patchwork dresses utilised archive rolls of fabrics from previous collections, while at Chanel, crisp layering semaphores a new mood of restraint. Meanwhile, at Ports 1961 and Gabriela Hearst, black and white dresses looked just the kind of elegant, no-fuss eveningwear we’ve been longing for.


We unwrapped the monochrome trend and looked at two categories. Monochrome evening gown and monochrome workwear options.

Artist Bridget Riley started the Op Art with her optical illusion black and white lines and shapes.
