Fashion trends Fall 2020
There’s a lot to worry about – both in private and business life. Many fashion houses have closed their stores and even warehouses, while creating time to make plans for the future. A future we still don’t know much about. One thing we know, at least, is what the trends of the future will be. Here’s an overview.
1. Cocoon shapes
Before anyone knew (or knew they?) that we were about to stay home for weeks, cocoon shapes were much welcomed guests on the runway. We saw them at JW Anderson, Simone Rocha and Nina Ricci. Perfectly suited for today’s main activity: cocooning.
2. Floor sweeping dresses
Despite the see-through bralettes and sexy tops, there were many head-to-toe covering dresses as well. Valentino, Balenciaga and Burberry were just a few of the big names that developed these pretty covering dresses. With today’s knowledge, they’re very relevant as well.
3. The skirt suit
Where we were suddenly all wearing suits since a season or two, a skirt suit is the ‘new normal’ – and perfectly suited for a warm Spring day. These ladylike silhouettes were showed at Celine, Victoria Beckham and Gabriela Hearst.
4. Coats to live in
During Winter, a puffer coat is our best friend. This will also hold for Fall 2020, except that coats will be even bigger and fluffier that season. We can’t wait.
5. Multifunctional flower curtains
Who thinks that flowers belong to old-fashioned curtains, lags behind. We saw flower curtain-prints at dresses, skirts, hats and actually any garment you can think of. Marni, Marine Serre and Erdem understand that there’s no place like home – literally.
6. Saintly silhouettes
Rodarte, Paco Rabanne and Iris van Herpen all went for saintly silhouettes. While fashion as salvation isn’t anything new, the way in which designers incorporated this concept in their Fall 2020 collections was very innovative.

Angelic Anatomy ~ dreaming the future We live in a world that is changing ever so rapidly. The current pandemic we all suffer worldwide, is an important moment for us to re-evaluate our future dreams. Inside this silence of uncertainty, we, the Iris van Herpen team and family are taking this time to do just that. We dream of a more meaningful future for fashion that embraces new beauty through innovation, craftsmanship and sustainability. Collaboration and the sharing of expertise among specialists in diverse disciplines, is the future of fashion. This will advance fashion in ways previously unimaginable. Fashion can intertwine with a wide scope of fields, from science to dance, sculpture to mathematics, from poetry to astronomy, anatomy to innovation. Let’s envisage a future of fashion that inspires us to re-create ourselves. While we work from home, we will continue to share our dreams of the future with you, our community.
