Raf Simons’ signature use of graphics and subtle subversion of popular silhouettes were on show again at his Spring/Summer 2021 show last month. But aside from the expected, Raf's “Teenage Dreams” collection had one thing firmly on our minds — and that was massive pants.

Raf's revolution-calling graphic tops were balanced by floaty flares and a host of plumed pants with more sharply tailored legs. Elsewhere in the design world, Martine Rose’s new collaboration collection with Farah for Spring/Summer 2020 also furthered the case for another look at this oft-forgot cut.

Attitude-heavy '70s looks have become more and more prevalent over recent seasons, spurred on by names like Harry Styles and, of course, Alessandro Michele's Gucci. It's only natural that the legs now get a look in.

From workwear derivatives by Jacquemus to the conceptual and the downright avant-garde, this roundup exhibits the full range of flares and wide pants that we've got our eyes on right now.
