The autumn of 2020 is unlike any other autumn we have experienced before when we enter
The second wave of the pandemic.
This time we are aware of it and we are also prepared and know how to protect ourselves.
We continue in the quieter and spend time mainly with friends and family.
But we have started going out to restaurants and shorter excursions, some of us on
slightly longer. What we all have in common is that we do it in a controlled way.
We try to hang out outdoors as much as possible and when there are more of us, we stick
WHAT DOES THIS HAVE TO DO WITH THIS YEAR’S TRENDS?
Yes, we would like to say everything. For trends is just that. A mirror of what is happening in the world, situations the world is going through, both economically, culturally and socially.
We have all heard the myth that the length of the skirt and the economic situation should have a connection. The thesis is that the skirts are shorter during a boom and longer during a recession.
Autumn 2020 is a time of trends that are very reminiscent of the trends of the 1940s. The 40s can be divided into two parts: the years during World War II when the trends were androgynous and more practical and the time after when they were festive and luxurious.
During the war, the woman had to take over many of the men’s jobs when the men were at war. The clothes needed to be practical and women began to wear trousers and those who started working in offices began to dress in clothes that mimicked the men’s suit.
Double-breasted jacket with marked shoulders became very popular, mainly for trouser skirts.
The second part of the 40’s, after the war there were reasons to celebrate and we see how the big fashion houses changed the muted colors to happy colors and the silhouettes became very feminine.
Maybe 2020 is a rehearsal where the war is replaced by a pandemic, a time of uncertainty. But also a time that strengthens us.
Because once we have gone through this, we will come out stronger than we were before and in the meantime we can be inspired by women who went through a much worse crisis than our time now.
2020 MOST IMPORTANT TRENDS ACCORDING TO US:
After a long period of street fashion with great inspiration from sportswear and comfort, large jackets and casual silhouettes, we are now turning the page and becoming more “dressed”.
The jackets have a waist and the large trousers are replaced with a trouser skirt or high-waisted trousers.
ACNE STUDIOS story for their collection in the autumn of 2020 illustrates a clear picture:
“We imagine a young woman who is hunting with royalty from Great Britain, she dresses in wool trousers / skirts and merino wool polo, well-fitting jackets, scarves and woolen hats, high boots or lace-up boots. Late night she has had enough of the conservative life and escape to Milan to dress for the nightlife in the big city. ”
