The colours to wear in Spring 2021
Spring is nearly on its way and we all need a New Year wardrobe refresh. So now is a good time to revisit your colour schemes and ensure you incorporate seasonal shades alongside your much-loved classics. After a challenging year, we all need positivity, strength and sunny hues to keep us bright and inspired. The Pantone Color Institute released a buttercup yellow called Illuminating as their 2021 Colour of the Year and we agree that solar vibrations are much-needed to inject happiness into our 2021 outfits. Our creative team has focused on a luscious colour palette for Spring-Summer 2021 — from bold peacock blue to tangerine and apricot, warm cinnamon, and of course fresh white linen. New to Galvan also is a series of bespoke brushstroke prints in a combination of these seasonal tones, including Yves Klein blue, apricot and raspberry. So, without further ado, introducing the Spring 2021 colour trends that we will be seeing more of this year – refreshing, inspiring and joyful.

Fresh linen white
There is nothing like a pure, virginal white to refresh your wardrobe instantly. Our new Prism dress balances the innocence of pristine white with tantalising cut-outs. Crafted in glossy jacquard striped satin, it features subtle flashes of bare skin through statement detailing and strategically placed panels — a diamond cutout at the front, a triangular cutout at the back, thigh-high side slits. Effortlessly cool, it offers an entirely modern spin on summer evening wear.

For a more relaxed take on the white summer trend, look no further than our Grotto co-ord, crafted from ultra-soft washed linen. The wrap skirt and crop top epitomise effortless summer style and will be cool to the skin in the heat. A delicate pinstripe print accented by a juicy orange strap finish this style with a twist.

Entirely crafted from deep peacock blue satin, our Katharina jumpsuit is as modest as it is chic, with long sleeves, an elongating wide leg and a confidence-boosting wrap style, belted with a flowing sash. A power jumpsuit if we ever saw one.

Inject fresh summery vibes to your wardrobe with this mermaid maxi. Crafted from luxurious silk jacquard in rich jade green, this dress features a marbled resin ring at the base of the neck - a chic necklace detail that makes jewellery unnecessary. Meters of lightweight silk skim gracefully over curves before flowing into a generous skirt. The asymmetric hem adds movement and drama to every step. With its loose silhouette and light fabric, this magical dress will take you from long, lazy lunches to late summer nights.

For a vitamin boost, try on our Delirium dress. A glistening cocktail number crafted from chiffon embroidered with translucent paillettes in zesty mandarin orange, it is cut on the bias for a classic ‘90s silhouette. Cropped at the ankle and cut with a low V at the back, it is a minimalist take on magpie dressing. Shimmer away to moonlit parties in this unforgettable iridescent slip.

Soft as a caress on the skin, the Felicity skirt in sweet apricot is a versatile separate that will come in handy when garden parties resume this summer. This dreamy maxi-skirt is crafted from featherweight micro-pleated satin, featuring generous billowing pleats that fall at ankle-length, with a central slit, for a feminine and comfortable silhouette. Paired with the matching blouse, it is the ultimate coordinated set for an elevated summer style.

Is there anything chicer for 2021 than a neutral, warm cinnamon liquid satin lounge suit? We don’t think so. An elevated take on the loungewear trend, our Lido suit has just the right amount of effortless flair for a working from home day, followed by at home cocktails or an evening stroll at sunset.

In cinnamon verging on cocoa, our Julianne suit is as delicious to wear as it sounds. Combining comfort with soft tailoring makes it a must-have, trans-seasonal wardrobe hero for 2021.

Our best-selling Corolle blouse also comes in pastel buttermilk yellow. Symbolising friendship and hope for the new season, we think it has all the good vibrations we need to put a smile on our faces throughout 2021.

For a bolder take on the Pantone Colour of the Year — luminous buttercup yellow — our Piazza suit in ultra-soft, sustainable natural fibres feels delicious on your skin. Uber-chic when paired with the matching Piazza blouse, these trousers are a true ray of sunshine.

Multi coloured prints
Awash in primary hues, the Euphoria dress and Skirt + Blouse combo are a riot of diluted painterly brushstrokes of cobalt, apricot, plum, blush and neon mandarin. The print is inspired by German artist Katharina Grosse’s evocative and immersive murals. A maximalist’s dream — wallflowers need not apply.

Yves Klein blue
Chic yet relaxed, this Lido dress features airy cut outs so you won’t break a sweat when the weather warms up. The fresh white canvas is printed with painterly brushstrokes in an Yves Klein blue wash. Perfect for seaside escapes.
