Jonathan Cohen Fall 2021 Ready-to-Wear collection, runway looks, beauty, models, and reviews.

Some designers say the pandemic hasn’t really affected how they work or what they choose to make. But Jonathan Cohen spent the past year retooling almost everything about his business: He built out his e-commerce site, adding ready-to-wear alongside his upcycled “Studio” pieces for the first time; he shifted much of his production to Italy, where he’s found better craftsmanship and managed to trim costs (since his fabrics are sourced nearby, he’s spending less on international shipping); and moving forward, he’ll release new collections when it makes sense, not when the fashion calendar dictates it. Fall 2021 is debuting months after the season began, but customers will be delighted to see that several looks are already available online.

Sarah Leff, the label’s cofounder and CEO, put it bluntly: “We’re doing what’s best for our business.” It’s sage advice for any independent or upstart brand. The ones that made it through 2020 knew (or quickly learned) the pitfalls of relying on a broken system and the merits of writing your own rules.

All of those changes came with a pivot in Cohen’s aesthetic. While texture and craft were often the highlights of his past collections—the fraying knits, the ribbon-trimmed dresses, the patchworked coats—he leaned into prints this season, noting they’re easier to understand on Zoom. The same is true of his simpler, leaner silhouettes, like a crisp shirtdress and a body-conscious T-shirt dress in glossy recycled polyester. Both still had a touch of the designer’s hand: The recycled number was ruched up at the hip, while the shirtdress had deep godets in the skirt for volume and movement. Cohen said he was going for “joyful ease”: dresses that are as exciting to wear as they are comfortable. headtopics.com

Cohen sourced a few of his fabrics from Carolina Herrera’s stockroom, including a cornflower striped cotton (seen on a ladylike, Herrera-esque nipped-waist dress) and a dark-rinse denim, which he cut into a suit and painted with giant magnolias. “Responsible” was how he described the textile assortment; in addition to those leftover materials, he cut strips of past-season florals and plaids into a smocked off-the-shoulder midi-dress, and continues to upcycle leftover fabric in his face masks.

That smocked dress might speak to fans of Cohen’s more artful, tactile work, ditto the long-sleeve minis with smocked collars and cuffs. If those women are missing his raw-edged tie dresses and floral embroideries, it’s fair to assume those details will return in the coming seasons. But Cohen also seems to understand that many women are craving a more pared-back look for their “post-pandemic” lives—clothes with less fuss, less volume, less styling. For some, that could still mean a legging—Cohen made a few pairs in floral recycled poly—while others will go for his opening number, a bouquet-printed chiffon dress with a removable sash. Those who loved the amethyst coat he made for Dr. Jill Biden will also be happy to see it was recut here, this time in a dry, nubby gray plaid you could wear over jeans or a cocktail dress.
