The quest for well-being continues to emerge as a true underlying trend for S/S 21, and has now become part of our everyday lives. Yet an aesthetic appeal remains essential, with buyers turning to new, intelligent developments that deftly combine innovation and good looks. Performance features are softer, yet no less genuine, and indicate a silhouette with more feminine lines.
Check out our selection of fabrics and accessories right now for inspiration, and to build your leisure offer for S/S 21.
Sporty dresses and skirts
The S/S Sport & Tech Style Focus highlights the importance of dresses and skirts for leisure and casual wear.
Worked in second-skin fabrics, styles are designed for ease: maxi or below-the-knee lengths, side slits and halter necks are the go-to looks, with cut-outs on both front and back to subtly reveal the skin. New recycled viscose-polyester blends hug the body in a fluid way, caressing the skin – perfect for next season’s playfully draped asymmetrical dresses and skirts.
Light texture, reminiscent of tiny waves, in 1+1 ribs, follow the body’s movements, and lend a note of fantasy to these new responsible and appealing knits.
Interlock knits with an embossed look, and viscose piqués with a subtly satiny finish, lend a feminine touch to new full-cut and longer caftans with saddle shoulders.

Indoor sports – yoga, meditation, Pilates – continue to be popular and new variations are emerging to be practiced indoors.
The Sport & Tech specialists are catering to these needs, offering developments that are both sporty and elegant.
Styles are designed to accommodate gentle stretches. Pants favour high waists and flared, cropped legs, in viscose-polyamide blends. These fluid fabrics are also interesting for new jumpsuits and sleekly pure pyjamas, which are also available in very fine ribbed versions for pant suits or shorts and tops featuring thin straps in a lingerie vein.
For tops, hoodies with large front pockets can be worn against the skin thanks to new natural blends of cotton and cashmere, which are extremely light and soft for truly luxurious comfort. Wrap styles emerge in fully-fashioned knits in natural and breathable textiles such as lyocell or linen with refined finishings that are quite pleasing for summer. Enveloping shapes also redefine the idea of more sophisticated comfort.
Tops favour cotton bases for freshness, now elaborated in mercerised versions or Supima qualities with a subtle silky aspect. Cuts are full and feminine, necklines are low, and trims are elasticated.
Dual-fabric effects combine featherweight polyamides and liquid knits that highlight ergonomic cut-outs. This refined homewear goes in for colour schemes featuring whitened pastels that lend a certain poetry, and invite harmony and serenity.
Occasionally, accessories such as cords and ribbons with punchy accents and geometric decoration upend the harmonious look, adding fantasy to narrow-waisted sweats with an amped-up fullness.
