SPORT CHRONICLE

The men’s fashion week was back in Paris for the 21/22 Fall-Winter season, but there was no difference this year from a Parisian or a New Yorker trying to have access to the shows! This season’s défilés were 100% digital and available on social networks, showing how resilient and creative the fashion industry can be. From Haute Couture giants to underground brands, this season has given various outdoor inspirations mixing creativity, adaptability and safety with trendy high-end garments.

Slowly leaving an era where streetwear and sportswear was massively present on fashion shows, outdoor inspirations gained maturity with detailed pieces, emphasising statements made from designers through their collections. INMOUV saw 6 particular trends on this season’s Parisian fashion week proving the new dynamic of outdoor clothing in the fashion industry!

5 – Sportswear collabs

2020 has already been a crazy year in terms of collaborations ( Dior x Jordan, Prada x Adidas, Louis Vuitton x Nike), and 2021 is starting with encouraging collaborations, not only coming from top-tier brands ! Sportswear is still a driver for designers using this potent culture to strengthen their statements

6 – A stronger presence of high-end outdoor brands :

The streetwear trend opened the possibilities in terms of brand representation at the PFW ! Here are some brands that excelled this season to build high-end garments, still authentic and close to their own world of sportswear and outdoor clothing.

Reese Cooper “Pyrophyte” collection

White Mountaineering

Loewe “Eye / Loewe / Naure” line

What a season this FW21 has been in Paris! Facing new challenges to create their universe with digital tools, brands pushed their creative limits to the max to offer great shows and share emotions that we wouldn’t have imagined we could feel behind a screen.

The pandemic might have positively boosted the impact of outdoor influences where this season, sportswear and outdoor pieces did not seem to be an extra on collections in order to follow the sports/streetwear trend (slowly decreasing now). In times where humans have been separated that much from nature, outdoor clothes became an inffluencial category in fashion, responding to the strong desires of comfort, exploration, fun and safety, combined with the boldest creativity that designers can offer!
