Forever 21's Fall 2016 Campaign Predicts Menswear-Inspired Pieces Will Be In For Autumn
Forget sweater weather — Forever 21 sets the tone for fall fashion by loading on the layers and taking a cue from those skater boys we loved so much. Say farewell to chunky cable knits and hello to sweatshirts, flannels, and beanies. Borrowing from the boys is never out of style, right? In Forever 21's Fall 2016 campaign, we see this demonstrated by models Lucas Satherley and Peyton Knight.
Many might recognize Peyton Knight as having one of the most dramatic haircuts in the fashion industry. After getting the major chop and additional fringe, the American model has been quickly moving up the ranks, walking for Coach, Marc Jacobs, and Rodarte, just to name a few. After being discovered in St. Louis, Missouri and then signing to IMG Models at 13, people started noticing her fast, landing a spot in Alexander Wang's show at 17, and she's only just beginning.
Boyfriend and Australian native Satherly has been seen in over 30 fashion shows for variety of high-fashion brands including Valentino, Dior Homme, Coach, and most recently Rag & Bone's S/S17 Ready-To-Wear show, dubbing him a fresh faced model to watch. Together, the duo have been named one of the cutest couples to follow on Instagram, according to Vogue, where you can not only see photos from the Forever 21 campaign, but also adorable snaps of their regular lives together.
One look at Forever 21's Fall 2016 collection and you'll be reaching for your pumpkin spice lattes. It's all about bomber jackets, trenches, distressed denim, and flannel shirts. While you might've expected to see skinny jeans and more body-forming sweaters, Forever 21 is predicting women's fall fashion will have more in common with the silhouettes of pieces found in the men's section. Boxy, oversized, and loose-fitting is where it's at, according to their Fall 2016 collection.
With the traditional fall tones and staples such as denim jackets, long-sleeved t-shirts, and hoodies, Satherley and Knight prove that dressing like your SO can most definitely be a good thing.
Who's ready for jacket weather? I know I am!
