As you can probably guess, we get pretty excited when the season turns. Not just for the refreshing weather conditions, but also for the chance to give our wardrobes a rethink, welcoming in some of the new season’s best new arrivals. When this time comes, we’re never too far away from a tab with Slam Jam’s new arrivals page open. The past few weeks have been no exception, and we’ve finally decided on our SS21 highlights.
From dark pieces by Rick Owens and Toga Virilis through to striking colors prepped for spring sunshine from Acne Studios and Casablanca, our SS21 highlights cover all sides of the Spring/Summer spectrum. While we believe that in 2021 we should all work on a streamlined wardrobe centered around trend-proof core pieces, there’s always space for a main character or three, so take your pick from the best accessories, footwear, and clothing from SS21.
