Even though the pandemic is still at the forefront of our lives, London Fashion Week found a way to safely take place. Through a series of digital shows, we were blessed with the genius creations of some incredible designers. Two designers with instantly recognizable looks are Simone Rocha and Molly Goddard. Goddard, a London-based phenom, is a wiz with tulle. I mean, she brings it to places even it didn’t know it could go.
“I hope [the collection] makes people happy. It’s been a hard few months and so I wanted to make something that might brighten up someone’s day …” Molly Goddard
Molly’s Spring 2021 collection is like playing dress-up but in real life in the best possible way. It’s colourful, comfortable and full of ruffles, ruching and hand-smocking. Pure happiness at a time when there hasn’t been enough of it around. There hasn’t been reason. 2020 has been a tough year so it’s nice to see something that represents Spring of 2021 in a hopeful and joyful manner
MOLLY GODDARD DESIGNS ARE JOY
At first glance, the playful nature may lead you to think it’s only for the younger (under 25) crowd. Not so. There are many pieces that would work for any woman regardless of age, shape or size. She manages to do this while maintaining that frilly but really edgy cool factor.
Her designs mix and match really well too – you could create so many different looks with them for day or night. She paired them with her beautiful handbags complete with signature ruching. She also recently collaborated with UGG to create two slip-ons: a towering platform and super furry slippers. These UGG designs suited her Spring 2021 collection perfectly. They kept that comfortable hip vibe flowing right down to the ground and I’m here for it.
Take a look below for a few of Molly’s designs from the thirty-one looks she included in her Spring 2021 collection. You can see the full collection on video on the Vogue site here.
