2. Fendi flips the headband
"Hair accessories have been big news for a while now, but Fendi managed to bring fresh appeal to the trend by taking a backwards approach to the classic headband," says InStyle beauty editor, Bettina Tyrrell.
3. Freewheeling fringe at Bottega Veneta
"With so many of his Bottega Veneta designs becoming instant hits—think the pouch bag and strappy square-toe sandals—it's safe to say Daniel Lee has the golden touch," says InStyle fashion news editor, Natalie Mell. "This season he went all in with fringing, producing a host of movement filled looks that are sure to spice up the street style scene very soon."
4. Prada's big news
There's not a lot that can shake an entire industry, but when Prada announced that Raf Simons (formally of Calvin Klein, Christian Dior and Jil Sander) would be joining the label as co-creative director, it was all fashion insiders could talk about. Simons will possess equal authority to current creative director Miuccia Prada, with the duo's first joint collection due during the spring 2021 season in September.
On the collection itself, Wood says: "Each look felt distinctly Prada which feels all the more poignant knowing it was one of Miuccia’s last solo outings for the label. I loved the pastel sequin embellished dresses and the oversized leather belted blazers in vibrant hues."
5. What's old is new at Marni
"This season Marni presented pieces patched together from fabric offcuts, turning them into wearable works of art. And though he didn't call it as a clear-cut sustainability effort, Francesco Risso is clearly taking steps towards more conscious design," says Mell.
