Buyers are pretty much experts at navigating a remote fashion month, now going on their third season of seeing collections and planning their buys mostly digitally. This also means they’re on their third season of trying to predict what their shoppers will want to wear six months down the line. And, if all goes according to plan, their Fall 2021 buys will hit shelves as our lives return to some version of normalcy.
So what will we be wearing post-pandemic? Below, buyers and fashion directors from department store chain Saks Fifth Avenue, luxury e-commerce sites Ssense and Mytheresa, contemporary e-commerce site Shopbop and Charlotte, NC- and Los Angeles-based boutique Capitol share their picks.
