We’ve been keeping an eye on the trends emerging from the Fall 2021 collection debuts in New York, London, Milan and Paris — and while each city usually puts forth its own ideas as to what we’ll be wearing six months from now, sometimes we see designers across all four fashion capitals come together and agree on a single piece, print or detail. This season, it was bows.
Many, many, many brands embellished their autumnal ready-to-wear lines with dainty, feminine bows. We saw them on gowns, dresses, suit jackets, belts at Prabal Gurung, Markarian, Oscar de la Renta and Staud in New York; Molly Goddard in London; Valentino in Milan; and Giambattista Valli and Paco Rabanne in Paris. You can see some examples of them in the gallery below.
The best part of this trend, though, is that you can start working it into your wardrobe today, thanks to bow-decked pieces from brands like Alessandra Rich, Cinq à Sept, Tove Studio and more that are out now. Give the Fall 2021 runway phenomenon a test-ride this spring with the items the gallery, below.
