Molly Goddard Autumn/Winter 2021

Words Savan­nah Christi­na

Is there even such a thing as ‘too much tulle’ when it comes to Mol­ly God­dard? God­dard nev­er ceas­es to amaze me, and this col­lec­tion cer­tain­ly did that, and more. It was not the extra­or­di­nary amount of tulle or bold and bright colours that shook me, it was the twist on what were once just clas­sic pieces that have been trans­formed into eye-catch­ing, flam­boy­ant sil­hou­ettes. God­dard­’s use of details made this col­lec­tion all the more per­son­al using tar­tan to reflect her British her­itage and her state­ment plat­form shoes we saw back in her Spring/Summer 2021 col­lec­tion.

Now for the unmiss­able, stand­out piece; the Lina dress — thir­teen meters of tulle, and we would not have expect­ed any­thing less! The con­trast­ing colour palette stood out for me the most; it is almost as if the bright blue rep­re­sent­ed the excite­ment and hope of the new year from the black tulle that rep­re­sents the som­bre times we have all been through recent­ly. Whilst watch­ing the show, all I could think was that I can­not wait to wear all of the colour­ful skirts and dress­es I have sit­ting in the cup­board, gath­er­ing dust, impa­tient­ly wait­ing to be worn again.  

Once again, Mol­ly God­dard has proved to be such a sen­sa­tion, giv­ing us all a moment of hope­ful­ness we very much need­ed.
