Y2K 2.zero Was the Largest Avenue Fashion Development of 2021

Love it or hate it, Y2K style was a big issue on both the catwalk this year (see Blumarine) and on the street, whereby the interpretations of the trend, which is pushing the boundaries of “good” taste, are interpreted differently from city to city. In Shanghai, the influence of the early 00s was evident in the form of eye-catching pants in various neon colors and prints; in Paris, scarves became crop tops. Mini skirts almost as tiny as they were in spring 2022 Miu Miu ruled the streets of London, while crop tops and logo baby t-shirts were all the rage in Milan and New York. The finishing touch to any aughts-inspired outfit is a Fendi baguette, then loved by Carrie Bradshaw (this iconic episode aired October 8, 2000) and now trendy Danes.
