Step Into the Lush World of Rains’ SS21 Collection

Published

on

This piece appears as part of “Not In Paris,” an online exhibition hosted and curated by Highsnobiety. Head here to see the full series.

For our special exhibition, Danish rainwear brand Rains is teasing its SS21 collection, titled “Never Lost.” Set backstage at fashion week, in the traditionally transitional space between the runway and the outside world, it captures the atmosphere of anticipation for the main event. As Rains co-founder Philip Lotko explains: “Waiting can often times get a bad reputation as a reaction to something that’s gone awry. In these times, waiting has been the strategy to pull through.”

The film also delivers a taster for the forthcoming season, which will explore questions significant to our current climate and what that means for the future of fashion. The next season will push you to think about, “which institutionalized methods of presenting fashion are holding us back from the future?” while Rains asks “how [it] want[s] to present collections in five or 10 years’ time?”

These concepts are navigated and teased via dramatic camera work and powerful compositions, which also highlight the standout silhouettes in Rains’ SS21 collection. At its core, “Never Lost” is undeniably futuristic, a reflection of an ongoing commitment to rethinking the quality of rainwear, as well as an emerging focus on the future of fashion.

Handled in a playful manner, the collection explores texture — polyurethane surfaces mimic linen, for example — and colorways like Pearl, Blush, Taupe, and Olive, all while keeping true to its heritage of Scandinavian simplicity.

Are you also “Not In Paris?” Not to worry, you too can join in on the non-gathering with our exclusive set of merch. Shop the collection here.

While timeless in nature, the classic button-down shirt has also been trending this season amongst the fashion crowd. Sure, an oxford blouse could be considered “plain” in theory, but its polished silhouette is what makes it an ideal piece in some of the chicest, effortless ‘fits. And as we’ve been spotting on the ‘gram recently, there’s one shirting trend that can enhance those button-down looks even more.

Yep, talking about the tie-front shirting vibe here. Whether purchased as an intentional tie-front top or tied on its own from a regular oversized shirt, the addition of this easy piece will take any simple ensemble to the next level as it will bring extra dimension to a look.

To showcase what we mean, we rounded up a bit of visual inspiration featuring the top. And if you’re shopping at the moment, we’re also showcasing how to master each look as well.

Banksy doesn’t know who he is eitherNewsBiscuit

Underground guerrilla Bristol street stencil spray paint artist Banksy may be suffering from early-onset dementia, it has been revealed, due to inhaling too many paint aerosol fumes over the years. The legendary street artist, who paints gigantic political cartoons on buildings or sprays his views and witty comments wherever he likes, was reportedly admitted to a care home by his parents, who were fed up with him living at home and wanted to let out the spare room.

‘He’s got millions in his account, but still refuses to pay us a bit of rent so we can make ends meet,’ said Mr Banksy senior, a graffiti art remover for Bristol Council. ‘Now we’ve painted the walls white and got a lovely top-end mattress in for our first tenant, a nice young lady called Tracey Emin. Our only rules are: no vodka, wine, cigarettes, pissing, shitting, vomiting or used tampons in the bed, but, just to be on the safe side. we have fitted a mattress protector.’

London Fashion Week will go ahead with physical and digital shows this September

The British Fashion Council has announced plans for London Fashion Week this September, confirming that some physical shows will be taking place. The organisation explained that both physical and digital shows would be on the schedule, which would be unveiled in full to the public later this summer.

The event will take place as planned from Thursday 17 September to Tuesday 22 September and both mens and womenswear designers will be invited to take part in the gender-neutral showcase. Traditional physical shows will be added to the schedule, but will of course have to follow government advice on social-distancing guidelines.

Alongside the shows, the digital LFW platform – which launched earlier this month when London Fashion Week Men’s usually takes place – will host exclusive content from designers.

One of the biggest shows on the LFW calendar, Burberry, had already revealed in June its plans to host a physical show this September, one which would also be played digitally to all.

“Now more than ever, we have to reimagine, to change,” the brand said in a press release. “We’ve always been drawn to nature and today we look to the purity and simplicity of the outdoors – where our founder Thomas Burberry laid our foundations – redefining our fashion landscape through new forms of expression.”

“Set in the British outdoors, the spring/summer 2021 collection will come to life on the 17 September as a live physical presentation that is open for all to experience digitally – opening new spaces to our global community as we reconnect with nature and each other.”

This confirmation from the BFC follows similar announcements from the organisers of both Paris and Milan Fashion Weeks, who revealed that a physical schedule would be in place, also complemented by some digital support.
