Top 10 Fashion Collaborations of Fall 2021

The Best Fashion Collaborations of the Fall 2021 Season as chosen by Kenneth Richard

While we certainly saw our fair share of strong, relatively traditional fashion team ups – Birkenstock and Proenza Schouler, Balenciaga and Gucci, Etro and Harris Reed – we also saw some unexpected collaborations that continued to push the boundaries of where the world of fashion ends.

Burberry collaborated with Dab Motors for a special edition motorcycle. Fellow Brit Stella McCartney also collaborated on a bike – though of the pedal variety, another nice expression of the brand’s push for sustainability.

Gucci released a special, bespoke limited edition of the new Xbox console. Moncler and Balenciaga tapped even further into the video-game zeitgeist, with both houses partnering with the immensely popular Fortnite. Cementing another strong chapter of their ongoing consideration of virtual worlds intersecting with human freedom, and with pieces that exist both in the game and IRL, Balenciaga takes home our top spot.

Here are The Impression’s Top Fashion Collaborations of Fall 2021 as selected by our Chief Impressionist, Kenneth Richard.
