vesta fas dama zara, Sandy Liang often finds inspiration from nostalgia, looking back to look forward—but not too far back in time. The designer tends to look toward her youth for inspiration, but for Spring 2021, she focused on her current mood as much as her obsessions from the past. While many of the collections this season stood to be stifled by the pandemic pause, Liang noted that this time, she had more time to breathe, to think and draw freely. That freedom resulted in separates we'd all want to wear during and post lockdown, as well as a cheeky Margot print that graced dresses, tops, and skirts—designed in collaboration with Rabin. The print is an ode to Liang's forever inspiration Margot Tenenbaum and Ponyo (a Japanese cartoon), and sat well with the micro mini skirts, gingham, and a fleece jacket with Lisa Frank-esque blooms down the sleeves. Other notes on nostalgia the designer embraced included super low-rise bottoms, cheerleader-style tennis skirts, and pieces that riffed on the standard crop top.
