In a time when we’re all struggling with unknowns and losing a sense of normalcy, fashion has been a beacon of light for many of us. Brandon Maxwell’s Spring/Summer 2021 Runway Show is a stunning representation of that hope and light.

The designer’s most recent collection, which is now available for pre-order on BrandonMaxwellOnline.com,¬†embodies elements that all of us have encountered throughout lockdown. The simple head to toe black and grey looks reflect the lower points of the pandemic, both around the world and in our own personal experiences, while the breakthroughs of bright pieces in this collection help us recall the more hopeful times.

The materiality itself draws inspiration from casual wear but is executed with elegant silhouettes, pairing together high fashion with the low-key sweatsuit material we’ve grown accustomed to. The collection further explores this sort of simple elegance, finding beauty and style in easy-to-wear outfits and straightforward pieces.

The sporty belt bags and windbreakers mixed with simple, chic gold jewelry give off a sense of modern confidence, exploring all the various ways we can use fashion today to feel comfortable yet still retain our aesthetic. The models all look at ease as they breeze down the runway in these casual-luxe looks, making us at home feel more comfortable and further into the fantasy of the collection.

With these vivid colors and the exploration of elegance, Brandon Maxwell’s SS21 show tells a clear story. A story we’re a little too familiar with by now, but the brand does it in a way that brings all of us watching from home a little bit of hope and a lot of appreciation for fashion.
