Fashion week is finally over! Take a deep breath, pour yourself a glass of champagne, catch up on our reviews, and dust off your salopettes. Yes, you read that correctly. If there was one key takeaway from Paris Fashion Week, it was that — even with travel restrictions still in place (perhaps even more so because of them) — apres-ski style is very much back on piste. And as usual, Lady Gaga is ahead of the curve. The AW21 shows may have come to an end, but of course, there’s never a dull week in fashion. So, here we are with our grace-saving edit of fashion news you may have missed this week! Congratulations on making it this far. Here’s what’s in fashion.

Online shopping has always been our preferred method of building out our wardrobe, but we’ve especially become reliant on it over the past year. In many ways, it’s better. It’s easier to find good deals, you don’t have to walk around the entire mall (or multiple malls) to find the types of pieces you’re looking for and you don’t have to deal with waiting in line.

The only real issue with online shopping is that you can’t try on clothes before you buy them. Sure, you can try something on and then return it — but some companies make you pay for shipping, and the entire thing is just a hassle. We’d much prefer if we could just try on clothes at home and then decide if we want to actually buy them

Here’s What Post-Pandemic Fashion Looks Like

FASHION IS looking beyond the pandemic. No, the fall 2021 season didn’t mean the return of thronged, star-studded shows in New York, London, Milan and Paris. Most of the collections were presented virtually via carefully edited films or streamed video in which models strode down runways in empty venues. But if crowds were absent, so, too, were pajama-inspired separates, cashmere hoodies, “elevated” sweatsuits or any other signs of the slovenly, WFH aesthetic so many of us have adopted over the past year. Instead, brands are pushing optimistic wares for our much-anticipated return to society.

Some, like Dries Van Noten, Prada and Paco Rabanne, proposed party-ready sequins. Others, like Chanel and Proenza Schouler, aimed to mitigate the sure-to-be-jarring transition to life beyond the living room with dresses chic enough for dining out but comfy enough for couch-based cocooning. And many, including Coach, Louis Vuitton and London’s Molly Goddard, suggested repenting for

Dior AW21 RTW Paris Fashion Week Show Review

Fashion loves a fairy tale. Usually, it’s ‘Once Upon a Time’ (very on-brand for origin stories of heritage houses) followed by ‘Happily Ever After’, the transformative moment when a protagonist becomes a princess. Maria Grazia Chiuri is a designer interested in filling in the blank space between those two lines, reframing the narrative of women and their dreams, desires and art. It’s no coincidence that her AW21 show for Dior falls on International Women’s Day, and at the Palace of Versailles. Dior is fashion for modern-day queens! MGC, after all, has made feminism her bestselling accessory, working with women artists ever since she joined the fashion house five years ago. Her latest show was an ode to those fairy tales, but rather than the usual trope of women finding salvation through love, she looked to the lesser-known group of women in the seventeenth-century court of Versailles. Madame d’Aulnoy and Madame
