Colour Pop. Molly Goddard SS21

Molly Goddard‘s spring-summer 2021 collection is pure joy. Although in the very beginning of the works on the collection, the London-based designer wanted to keep everything in white as a response to the current circumstances, she observed as things slowly started to reopen and totally changed her mind. Her signature, ruffled, full-skirted dresses come in vivid greens, the checkerboard sweaters go neon, and explosive tulle gowns shock with the deepest of reds. A minimalist gesture of colour hits through joyous, maximalist shapes – that’s how you can sum up this delightful collection. But the designer has a grounded approach. Goddard’s taffeta and tulle clothes tend to have a dry hand and a utilitarian aesthetic that works for day. Her new pretty A-line anorak dress was a great example. And if there were ever a season to collaborate with Uggs, this moment is surely it. The colorful shaggy slides and comfy platforms were primed for a life working from home. Also in keeping with the times was Goddard’s decision to make many of her statement-making dresses available in white. For fashion-forward young brides shopping in the era of the socially distanced wedding, that’s the right decision.
