‘Roaring Twenties’ Trends Top Tagwalk Searches for F/W 20-21

A total of 10,862 looks, 249 designers and 1,323 models brought the Fall/Winter 20-21 fashion season to life, according to data from Tagwalk.

The Paris-based fashion search engine recently released data that paints a season defined by subversive fashion, fringe and metallic, and a notable shift away from denim-oriented trends.

Across the four fashion weeks, keywords such as boudoir, volume, fringe and metallic saw the greatest increase in searches compared to Fall/Winter 19-20.

“Boudoir,” which was executed this season by Atlein with slip dresses and triangle bra tops by Christopher Kane, saw a 140 percent increase in searches during fashion month, Tagwalk reported. Keyword searches for “volume” increased 69 percent—a trend that Moncler amplified in its collaboration with JW Anderson.

And users were eager to see how designers are interpreting trends born in the Roaring Twenties for 2020. Searches for “fringe” increased 62 percent as designers like Anna Sui and Alberta Ferretti experimented with the trim. And “metallic”—another trend inspired by the flapper era—saw searches increase 36 percent.

Leather, strong shoulders, green, red, cutouts and statement coats were among Tagwalk’s other top trends for the season.

Meanwhile, searches for tie-dye, grunge, leopard and corduroy—keywords that played into denim and workwear categories—saw the greatest decline, Tagwalk reported. Searches for tie-dye decreased 68 percent compared with F/W 19-20. Likewise, grunge dropped 66 percent, leopard 41 percent and corduroy 39 percent.

However, Tom Ford’s take on denim captured the attention of fashion watchers.

Though he presented his collection in Los Angeles, “Look 7” from his F/W 20-21 show—a knee-grazing patchwork jean skirt worn with a shearling jacket and matching denim shoulder bag by Gigi Hadid—was the most viewed look on Tagwalk during New York Fashion Week.
