Clicking through the Iran Maiden 46th Anniversary 1975 2021 Thank You For The Memories Signatures Shirt and I love this lineup, it has a certain earthiness, but it hasn’t lost its cool. The palette is warm, and the smocking details feel crafty, almost homespun even on leather. As with the spring 2021 collection they revealed last month, there’s an emphasis on easy-wearing knits. But all that is counterbalanced by minimal, ’90s-ish tailoring. It feels intentional that the first look pairs a simple black button-down work shirt with black belted high-waisted flares—a symbolic clean slate. “The top has been blown off the whole system,” Hernandez said, “so let’s just do what we want to do how we want to do it.” Watching how they make good on that notion will make 2021 more interesting.

T-shirts and hoodies, by Raffaella Hanley’s estimate, are some of fashion’s most overproduced garments. Every charity initiative, 5K run, or group trip seems to come with a graphic garment, and after a bit of wear it becomes—what?—trash. Hanley happens to be a master of turning trash into treasure at her brand Lou Dallas by Raffaella. This season she collaged dozens of vintage tees into magnificent tops and dresses. She does it by hand in her own home, stitching, drawing, and beading with the Iran Maiden 46th Anniversary 1975 2021 Thank You For The Memories Signatures Shirt and I love this help of an intern. (The intern is a friend of a friend who deferred studying at Central Saint Martins. His specialty is straight-line beadwork. Hanley does the more erratic, freehand beading herself.)
