Last week, NKPR hosted the FW21 Preview for Sympli, SOREL, and MEC. Each brand provided a selection of fashion wear designed for both function and style, with collections that hone in on a comfort-meets-stylish appeal. Our media friends were invited to attend both in-person and digitally.
With chunky soles and sneakers still set to be trending this fall and winter, there was a lot of buzz surrounding SOREL’s Kinetic sneaker collection and their year-round variations of the beloved platform trainer. The brand is also set to bring both men’s and women’s pieces inspired by utility boots with hints of hiker hardware, in vibrant and monochromatic variations that are perfect for trekking both in the city and the outdoors.
Work-from-home is also here to stay, even if some of us are making more frequent trips to the workplace. Sympli, the Canadian workleisure brand founded by women for women, is releasing a dynamic, functional, and stunning collection of pieces designed out of French Terry Cotton, the light-weight, breathable and moisture-wicking fabric, that’s ideal for transitional pieces that can carry you over from summer to winter.
MEC highlighted that outdoor activities such as hiking, camping, snowshoeing, and skiing will continue to gain popularity especially as we continue to rely on the outdoors as an additional source of entertainment and fun! MEC’s FW21 collections showcased fleeced pieces, technical hoodies and jackets, hiker essentials as well as outer layers that protect us from the natural elements.
