Designers look to the future for fall 2021.

With excitement and optimism for what lies ahead, New York-based designers Anna Sui, Tanya Taylor and Badgley Mischka deliver uplifting collections. 

From cheerful colors to bold prints, the future of fashion looks bright.

'As we wait "on pause" for the new world that will emerge from this pandemic, my mind is awhirl with visions of the vibrant world that lies just ahead—I can't stop thinking of that "black-and-white to color" moment,' said Anna Sui in a press release

 ANNA SUI'S PHANTASMADELIC

'As we wait "on pause" for the new world that will emerge from this pandemic, my mind is awhirl with visions of the vibrant world that lies just ahead—I can't stop thinking of that "black-and-white to color" moment,' said Anna Sui in a press release.

'The limbo that we are living in will turn psychedelic, exuberant with color and pattern-- it's going to be Phantasmadelic!'

The New York-based designer says the time reminds her of the 1968 film "Wonderwall" by Joe Massot, when a bored scientist (Jack MacGowran) discovers a hole through his wall and sees swinging sixties model Penny Lane (Jane Birken) on the other side. 

'In contrast to his colorless existence, everything about her is dazzling including her apartment, designed by The Fool who also did the clothes and decor of Apple Boutique for The Beatles.'

This capsule accessory collection was inspired by Anna Sui's live-your-dream mentality, vision of dressing rockstars and the classic must-have bags in Anna's bold and vibrant prints.

Global Vice President of Product and Design, Denielle Wolfe explains, 'Collaborating with Anna Sui can only be described as unmistakable femininity mixed with rock & roll eccentrics. 

'We created easy styles in bold executions that evoke confidence while striking a perfect balance of living light and living your dream.'

Additional collabs include Birdie Purl's hand knit fashions; cosmic jeans hand-painted and bleached by Anna Castellano; crushed velvet printed with snakes and peacocks by artist Monika Forsberg; psychedelic t-shirts and patches by Golden Daze Illustration, and much more.

BADGLEY MISCHKA'S THE RETURN TO WONDERFUL

For fall 20201, legendary design duo Mark Badgley and James Mischka were inspired by their friends and memories of fabulous dinners and nights on the town in New York before everything was shut down. 

Their excitement and optimism about the future lead them to design a showstopping collection in luxurious fabrics and colors. 

'Our particular inspirations draw from the most exuberant aspects of New York nightlife - Phoebe Legere performing in her pajamas at One/Fifth in the 80's, the Met Ball in the 1990's (when it was about society, not celebrity), and the theater of restaurants since we have lived in NYC,' they said in a press release.

The collection and video were shot at Keens Steakhouse, one of their favorite NYC restaurants.

'It provides a platform for us all to make the memories we have been missing, and to do it with effortless glamour.'
