Luxury retailer Harrods tackles the fall-winter 2021 trends with its head of menswear, Simon Longland. The latter notes that this season’s “messages have been consistent regardless of whether we’re talking about Ermenegildo Zegna or Fendi.” Longland adds, “There has been a blurring of boundaries–a lack of separation between work and home, formal and informal.”
The convergence of tailored and relaxed style codes is present with Harrods’ trend report that features a story lensed by Joachim Mueller-Ruchholtz. The photographer focuses his camera lens on model Nasser Mirza. In front and center, Nasser inspires in designer styles that reflect the changing times.
As leisure and business overlap, designers embrace relaxed shapes for tailoring–resulting in the general casualization of fashion. In the same manner that casual notes affect dressing up, elegant style moments transform the everyday wardrobe. From stylish oversized coats to shirt jackets, brands such as Frame and Valentino help set the tone for the season.
