It’s all about exaggeration for Cruise 2021: extra long, extra fabrics, extra big or extra tight.
Sleeves are cut close to the knuckles, pants come in weighty fabrics that end beyond the heels, and all are worn with this cool relaxed attitude. All that translates to the languid language of the season.
At Sportmax, tight knit tops are cut high to expose some skin and paired with tailored pants and an oversized all-nighter, capturing that holiday vibe of just returning from a sunset dip in the sea.
Over at Bottega Veneta, Daniel Lee plays with clashing colours and proportions, experimenting with different weights of knits and silky wool pants that are borderline masculine yet rooted in feminine allure. His goal: a timeless wardrobe in tried-and-tested silhouettes that women would wear beyond the season. We’re definitely buying it.
