Grown-up and Grounded

Not only did designers' outlooks change over the past year; so, too, did ours. What do we want from our clothes now? Practicality? Comfort? Fun? Our habits over the past year have changed with a shift away from trend-driven items and into shopping with a purpose.

And what does this mean for your wardrobe, you ask? Several aesthetic moments emerged from this most unprecedented of seasons: from serotonin-boosting joy to a grown-up move on from loungewear via escapism in the form of dreamy romance and beach-bound pieces, SS21 threw up trends that suit manys current work from home lives while looking towards a more hopeful future. With this growing sense of optimism is a season of trends that act as an antidote to the never-ending doom and gloom by injecting a healthy dose of serotonin into collections.

And with this in mind, we may have embraced coordinating loungewear last year but for 2021, we’re looking to feel a little more put together. This needn’t mean abandoning comfort; on the contrary, designers such as Leem have introduced easy styles and soft-touch fabrics which suit a more paired back life while allowing us to employ some sartorial structure.

Taking cues from the current climate, Leem has given special attention to chic comfort. Making a statement for Spring Summer is the loungewear range, which is back and better than ever with the inclusion of “comfort dresses”. And, as always, quality is front of mind for Leem, with its unique knits, fleeces and jersey fabric with soft finishing, as well as new additions - a very special and soft Tencel, a bamboo-viscose blend and cotton jacquard, specially created for this collection.
