Theophilio’s Spring/Summer 2021 collection will leave you inspired, craving a touch of island breeze, and wholeheartedly excited for the future of fashion. At least, that’s how it made me feel when I watched the streamed runway show this past September.

Titled “Migration,” the video features models and friends of Jamaica-born designer Edvin Theophilus Thompson wearing sustainably-made garments that channel the soul of the island. The looks appear over a video of a Jamaican highway — footage Thompson shot himself, on his way to the airport from his family’s home. From the clothing to the beauty choices to the format, “Migration” tells a visual story about Jamaican culture.

Thompson was born in Kingston but moved to America at the age of 9. He’s interested in capturing not just the spirit of Jamaica, but also

Fashion has always been an accessible creative outlet, but after more than a year spent inside our own homes, the future of getting dressed feels uncertain. We traded stiff jeans for pants with elastic waistbands and heels for house slippers—will we ever want to put on real clothes (or at least, clothes that don’t explicitly shout comfortable!) again?

The answer, according to fashion psychologist Shakaila Forbes-Bell is yes—but the approach to fashion won’t be the same. By applying psychological theories to how we interact with clothing, including the buying, selling, styling, and design processes, Forbes-Bell works with brands (she is also currently the in-house Fashion Psychologist for Afterpay), to determine not what the trends are, but why they exist. Now, she’s using the same approach to think about what post-pandemic dressing will actually look like.
