Recalling a dream of her grandmother and a shell bracelet gifted by her mother, the designer Gabriela Hearst chose to let her subconscious guide the way for Spring/Summer 2021.
Elegant silhouettes and fabrications like cashmere silk, nappa leather, linen, and merino wool existed in a palette of black, white, blue, red, orange, and yellow. Hemlines of pants, skirts, and dresses all fell to the ankles, adding an air of sophistication to nonchalant styles like tank dresses and loose jumpsuits.
Looks were put together with simple styling that highlighted details in the designs, like small cut-out sections, detailed stitching, patches of rainbow knit, and delicate belts. Looks we loved included a multicolored pleated skirt and a collared blouse, a black leather dress with statement sleeves, and an airy white dress with patchwork stitches and a cream overcoat.
