Winter is approaching, and this season, we're going as bold as ever. Right now, it's all about who gets the most eyes on their designs, and how exotic you can style a look. Our favorite pieces are abstract, and avant-garde. They catch your eye, but they're still extremely wearable. Some of the looks include the black Balenciaga Couture coat with feather-like appendages, the blue Gaultier Paris by Sacai gown split down the middle for legroom to show off matching patterned tights, the pink and lavender smooth Armani Privé pants and soft top combination, and the black Schiaparelli Haute Couture dress adorned with gold ornamentation that looks like something Maleficent herself would wear.

Styled by V Magazine and VMAN Fashion Director Gro Curtis, these looks are nothing short of impressive. But the other half of the battle in making clothing really pop is the modeling and photography. With no solo shots, the main model is accompanied by one or two dancers, almost fully nude but covered in all different colors to help accentuate each look. To top it off, the photography was done by Sølve Sundsbø, who really captured the energy of each outfit. 2021 fashion is all about the eccentric, and these looks couldn't have emulated that better.
